Another place where you can truly experience arts and science is on the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade. You can stroll along and see the beautiful Victoria Harbour. If you are a history enthusiast, then visit the Hong Kong Cultural Center. If you are fascinated by science, then go to the Hong Kong Space Musems. For me, while waiting for the symphony of lights to start, we opt to visit the Hong Kong Museum of Arts. Its beautiful and its big. Truly a place which showcases Hong Kong’s love for the arts.

Avenue of the Stars

Hong Kong is known as the “Hollywood of the East” that is why they have the Avenue of Stars. This place commemorates the glory of Hong Kong’s movie industry. You can walk along famous movie stars commemorative plaques, hand prints and movie memorabilia. You can also see a life sized statue of the great action star Bruce Lee as well as a popular cartoon pig character McDul. If you visit during the cold season, better bring jackets and scarves to protect you from the cold breeze. Food is no problem as there are lots of small stores that sell squids, colas, and many more. The atmosphere in this place is lively and fun because of all the performances organized every day.

Symphony of Lights


The first time I saw the Symphony of Lights was from a Hong Kong action movie. So when I went to Hong Kong, I was thrilled to see the show with my own two eyes. It is basically a synchronized dance of lights and beams among the buildings of Central District – a truly spectacular show to watch.
