After we spent the whole day in Lantau Island, we went to see The Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui. The Avenue of Stars is similar with The Hollywood Walk of Fame, but here, the stars are from Hong Kong film industry.
Going there from Lantau Island is easy. From Tung Chung MTR Station then we changed line in Lai King Station where we stopped at Tsim Sha Tsui, and just walked to Exit ‘J’ of East Tsim Sha Tsui station. From there, we walked through a garden, called Salisbury Garden, and we met this big replica of the statuette that is given to the winner in the Hong Kong Film Awards. And here, in the promenade, laid the plaques of the stars with their autographs or handprints … And of course, who doesn’t know Bruce Lee :D. There’s also a bronze statue of Bruce Lee in this area too.
During the days that we visited Hong Kong, there’s an event called Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races. It actually was held from 4 – 8 July 2012 in Victoria Harbour, the same areas with the Avenue of the Stars. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to see it as it’s already finished :(.
The Victoria Harbour is famous with its view, especially the skyscrapers that located in the opposite of The Avenue of Stars, which is in the Hong Kong Island. The famous skyscraper there would be the 2 IFC Towers. It would be more beautiful if you come in the evening where the light of the building is on
Another attraction in this Victoria Harbour in the evening is the Symphony of Light, which is held every night at 8PM. It’s a show of light, laser, and music. Many buildings alongside the Victoria Harbour participates in this show, especially in the lighting display. The show was okay, not as grand as I expected, but the important thing is, the sky was clear that evening
Actually there are many things to visit in Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, such as Hong Kong Space Museum, Hong Kong Cultural Museum with its clock tower, and many more. I love the Hong Kong Cultural Museum building; it looks like a very solid white building haha!
After all the activities in Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, we decided to have dinner. We entered the Sogo department store, but didn’t find any food stalls that interesting, so we exited the building and went to Nathan Road. The road is full of stores, restaurants, and flooded with people, including tourists (yes including us too :D). Still, we’re not sure what to eat so we just decided the easiest option … McDonalds!! Haha …
