The Avenue of the Stars and the Promenade that runs along the tip of Kowloon's waterfront, is one of Hong Kong's most spectacular walks. It offers some of the most breathtaking views of the Hong Kong skyline and bustling Victoria Harbour.
It is a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, just sit outside and relax, grab a bite, people watch, enjoy the sweeping views...
The Promenade extends from the Kowloon Star Ferry terminal on the west, all the way past the Intercontinental Hotel on the Eastern side. It is a wonderful stroll, along the walkway there are cafes and eateries, benches to relax and some of this side's greatest landmarks:

It is a fantastic walk, you get some of the best views of the skyscrapers of the Hong Kong skyline and Victoria Peak...
And all sorts of traffic in the harbour, boats, ferries, junks...
It is a wide promenade, popular with joggers in the morning and the early birds doing their tai chi and exercises.
Starting from the Star Ferry Pier as you head east you walk pass the Clocktower and the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Soon you run into The Avenue of Stars.
The Avenue of Stars is the territory's answer to Hollywood's Walk of Fame and a tribute to Hong Kong's movie icons, cinematographers, producers, and directors that make it all happen...
Also prominently displayed is a four and a half meter replica of the Hong Kong Film Award Statuette, (the equivalent of the Oscars):
Like its American counterpart, along the walk, Star plaques are edged out on the pavement dedicated to Hong Kong's prominent actors and actresses and the corresponding hand prints side by side.

The promenade is also one of our favourite places to watch the daily Symphony of Lights show in the evening. The harbour and the buildings along the water provide one of Hong Kong's best free entertainment for about 10 minutes every night.
And although it gets extremely crowded, this is also one of the best spots to watch Hong Kong's legendary fireworks displays.
