Aside from food and shopping, let’s not forget that Hong Kong is a city that never sleeps!
My Trip To The Garden of Stars
I’ve been to this place several times since I visit Hong Kong quite often. Now that my husband and I are empty nesters, we decided to visit the Garden of Stars once again to enjoy the waterfront and to hit our daily 10,000 steps.
The Garden of Stars also known as the “avenue of the stars”, is located in Tsim Sha Tsui East Waterfront, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The Garden was just newly renovated.
The Garden of Stars pays tribute to the people that helped make Hong Kong the ‘Hollywood of the East’. It was re-designed and it was opened again in 2019.
The Garden of Stars is Hong Kong’s version of the Hollywood walk of fame in Los Angeles. You will find Hong Kong celebrities handprints over the place while you enjoy the captivating harbor view and the Hong Kong skyline.
