Avenue of the Stars TST

Although this is something of an artificially created tourist attraction it is a much more interesting thing than the Golden Bauhinia Square, though they have in common a few of the harbour and the opposite skyline as their main feature.

What makes the Avenue of the Stars in TST more interesting is the fact that it is a nice long stroll on a wide path.  Even though there is nowhere to go as such it is still an interesting journey and the "Stars" embedded in the pavement mimicking those in Hollywood are only of peripheral interest unless you are a HK Movie/Film fan.

Stretching along the south/east side of the TST Peninsular from outside the Cultural Centre until past the New World Centre it is part of an even longer walk from the TST Star Ferry Pier itself all the way to the TST Promenade and hence as far as Hung Hom which is a rather boring place.

Unless you are staying near the eastern part of the walk and hence can 'walk about to the hotel', e.g. if you are in the Hotel Nikko Hong Kong or the Intercontinental Grand Standford Hong Kong then I would recommend doing the walk North to South so that you can end at either the beginning of Nathan Road or the TST Star ferry pier which are both good places to go onto somewhere else afterwards.

Getting there:

1. Take a taxi to the New World Centre and walk through the shopping arcade to the waterfront.  Walk south with the sea on your left.

or

2. Get to the TST Star Ferry and walk north with the sea on your right.
