Highlighting the biggest names of the past and present in the film industry of Hong Kong, the Avenue of Stars offers insights into world-famous movie stars as well as stunning harbour views.
The Avenue of Stars can be found along the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront overlooking Victoria Harbour. Within a 15 minute drive from Dorsett Mongkok, Hong Kong, it also offers the ideal vantage point to take in the daily Symphony of Lights, a stunning light and sound spectacle across the harbour.
Re-opened after a revamp, this popular attraction, which is easy to access from hotels in Kowloon, Hong Kong, features more than 100 handprints; these include those of actors, actresses, directors and other notable figures in the local film industry. As part of the new innovations, you can see biographies and selected film clips by scanning QR codes on your smartphone.
With so many celebs, it’s hard to mention them all here! Of course, some of the well-known stars include Bruce Lee, Andy Lau, Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, John Woo, Tony Leung and Chow Yun Fat.

Apart from handprints, the Avenue of Stars also has several notable statues, with the most famous one being of martial arts superstar Bruce Lee that has an augmented reality to it as well. Other statues here are of actress and singer Anita Mui, cartoon character Mcdull and the figure of the Hong Kong Film Award.
