The Avenue of Stars is Hong Kong's version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It demonstrates Hong Kong's film history by displaying 107 signatures and handprints of those who made great contributions to this film industry, including Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung and John Woo. There is a copper statue of famous Kung-fu movie actor, Bruce Lee, at the Avenue, and the statue of Hong Kong Film Awards at the entrance beckoning to all visitors. In addition to the stars, the Avenue itself is a beautiful boulevard. It is decorated with special lighting effects which turns it into a glittering galaxy in the evening. With its location at Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, it is a fabulous spot to view the beautiful Victoria Harbor. Hong Kong government has fixed many benches and food stands along the Avenue since 2011, making it a great place for leisure and sightseeing. Visitors will not want to miss this amazing spot.
Nestled in the Avenue of Stars property, Bruce Lee Statue is a tribute to the martial arts legend. This statue is made of bronze and shows the star in his iconic attack pose. Made by the funds collected by his fan club, Bruce Lee Statue was inaugurated by the star's brother in 2005 on Bruce Lee's 65th birthday. Besides, this place has been featured in the background of the Amazing Race series on several occasions.
Aqua Luna, with its bright red sails and spartan wooden aesthetic, is hard to miss as it totters to and fro across Victoria Harbor. Quite possibly the last handmade junk ship, its 80 year-old builder utilized traditional designs and materials in crafting the floating cocktail lounge and sightseeing vessel. The stunning views and authentic craftsmanship are not all Aqua Luna has to offer, however. A full menu of signature cocktails and beers awaits passengers, as well as a range of non-alcoholic beverages for younger guests or those wishing to regain their sea legs. Aqua Luna leaves from two separate ports in Hong Kong depending on their whereabouts at the time. Starting at 5:30 PM trips leave from Pier 1 in Tsim Sha Tsui on the half hour and from Pier 9 in Hong Kong Island's Central district a quarter before the hour. Reservations can be made up to ten days in advance, however Aqua Luna happily accepts walk-on guests provided space allows.
Tsim Sha Tsui, right across the Harbour from Central, lies at the very tip of the Kowloon Peninsula. Some of the attractions here include the Clock Tower, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the beautiful waterfront promenade leading to Tsim Sha Tsui East. The mega shopping arcades of Ocean Terminal, Ocean Centre and Harbour City, which are all connected by enclosed walkways, as well as the Golden Mile along Nathan Road, ensure that Tsim Sha Tsui remains not just Hong Kong's, but also one of the world's major shopping areas.
Why stand on the crowded harbour shores when you can enjoy the annual Chinese New Year fireworks display and the panorama of the Hong Kong skyline from the water? Inclusive of a soft drink and snacks, the cost of this cruise is around HKD400 per person. However, as fireworks displays are only held once a year or so, it is best to check for more specific details closer to the time of the event.
This 44 metre tall clock tower used to be part of the former Kowloon-Canton Railway Terminus. The construction of the Tsim Sha Tsui terminus started in 1912, and the clock tower was added in 1915. The original building was subsequently unable to handle the large volume of passengers and the government decided to relocate the terminus to a larger building in Hunghom. When the terminus was demolished in 1978, the tower was retained and it has since become a Hong Kong landmark.
Just as Admiralty is the extension of Central, Tsim Sha Tsui East is the extension of Tsim Sha Tsui. This big piece of land was the result of a large reclamation project in the 70s and did not exist until 1980. Now it has become a major hotel, shopping and nightlife area, with excellent views of the harbour and the north-shore of Hong Kong Island. The Museum of Science and the Museum of History are also in this area.
Often cited as 'the world's most economical city tour', the Star Ferry plies the waters of Victoria Harbour between the Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island. Most of the traffic goes to Central or Wan Chai from here. Additional ferries set off from this peninsular port to Cheng Chau and Lantau islands and from the island side to Lamma and Peng Chau islands. The Star Ferry Port contains a number of souvenir shops, snack bars and even a small travel agency. Public restrooms are located near the departure staging area. The ticket prices range from HK$D150 for adults to HKD135 for senior citizens and children.
