May 1, 2013 - Hong Kong's Avenue of Stars

From Time Square, we headed over to the Avenue of Stars, which is Hong Kong's equivalent to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Located on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront along the Victoria Harbour, it offers a wonderful view of the city.  I just wish it weren't so gloomy outside as the view would have been even better.




As I mentioned, the Avenue of Stars was modeled after the Hollywood Walk of Fame and honors the celebrities of the Hong Kong film industry.  Along the Avenue is a bronze statue of Bruce Lee.



There are also plaques that are a combination of the Hollywood Star and the hand prints at the Grauman's Chinese Theater along the Avenue.  I found the stars of some of my favorite Hong Kong stars, including Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Chow Yun Fat, Jet Li, and Maggie Cheung.
