Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and the Avenue of Stars

After spending a few hours at Stanley on our day off for the Dragon Boat Festival my roommate and I decided to do a little more exploring and headed over to Tsim Sha Tsui to observe the iconic Hong Kong skyline, take a walk down the Avenue of Stars, and watch the Symphony of Lights light show.

The Avenue of Stars is modeled after the Hollywood Walk of Fame, except with Chinese stars. Unless you’re familiar with Chinese cinema you won’t recognize many names. Although I did see these.

Every night at 8pm, the Symphony of Lights show plays. The Symphony of Lights holds the Guinness World Record for the largest permanent music and light show. All of Hong Kong’s most famous buildings light up in synch to music and it even spans takes place on both sides of the Harbour. It is actually possible for me to see some of it from my hotel room window, although there is no music.

And with this post, I think I’ve seen most of Hong Kong’s tourist attractions. Frankly, I’m getting tired of writing about them because there’s really not much else I can say other than show you pictures. I’m really interested in writing more about my internship so in the next few days expect a few posts on that. OH, and I bought yarn from a street market today. I’m going through knitting withdrawal. I’m going to look up some scarf patterns now.
