Movie fans visiting Hong Kong will want to visit the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, a bustling waterfront along Victoria Harbour. Known for its many museums, cultural attractions and the iconic Avenue of Stars, a stroll in this beautiful walkway is a must. The impressive skyline view rising above the boats is yet another reason to wander the TST promenade.
Visitors to the area can begin at the Clock Tower, built in the colonial era, and walk towards urban Hung Hom, on the east of the peninsula. Along the way, you’ll pass the Avenue of Stars, which measures 440 meters from Hong Kong Museum of Art to the New World Centre.
Avenue of Stars, a major attraction on the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, is dedicated to key players in Hong Kong cinema. Modeled after Los Angeles’ Hollywood Avenue of Stars, it features the handprints of Hong Kong cinema celebrities. Here guests can pay homage to Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee, as well as learn about the movies through exhibits and free shows that play out by the waterfront.

Other attractions including Hong Kong Cultural Centre which hosts cultural activities like concerts, operas, dance, and theatre shows. Hong Kong Space Museum, an egg-shaped building on the waterfront, is the place to be for astronomy exhibits, planetarium projections, sky shows and more.
Once visitors have made the journey from one end of Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade to the other, they can finish the day watching the Symphony of Lights Hong Kong. This long-running show starts at 8pm each night, inspiring the likes of Gardens By The Bay Light Show in Singapore around the region.
The multimedia display has been running since 2004 and sees the whole harbor illuminated after the sun has set. With lasers, LED screens and a play on colors, this impressive audiovisual act attracts hundreds of travelers each night. Since 2017, a new soundtrack has been introduced courtesy of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. An additional 2018 update to the show has also seen even more buildings incorporated into the light spectacular, bringing the total up to 42 buildings in total.
