The Avenue of Stars, modeled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, is an avenue located along the Victoria Harbour waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. It honors 107 celebrities of the Hong Kong film industry: actors, directors, scripwriters, singers… and even a cartoon character.
The avenue was opened to the general public on 28 April 2004 with an opening ceremony held the previous day. It has been closed on October 2015 for repair and improvement works and was reopened to the public on January 2019 after 3 years of renovation.

More than three years of renovation
The Avenue of Stars has been redesigned by renowned landscape architect James Corner.
The handprints of 107 movie stars, which were previously on the pavement are now mounted on handrails along the harbourfront. Scanning QR codes provided near the displays allow you to read details about the stars and watch related movie clips on your phone.
The statues are no longer behind barriers but surrounded by water, making it more convenient to take photos. You can even take a photo and interact with Bruce Lee or Anita Mui using Augmented Reality technology.
