Hong Kong skyline is best viewed from the ‘stars’

HK skylineCurrently three out of the 20 tallest buildings in the world are in Hong Kong: Two International Finance Center, Central Plaza and Bank of China Tower.

These structures and more make the former British crown colony’s skyline one of the best in the world, if not the best.

The view from the Avenue of Stars, along the Victoria Harbor waterfront on Kowloon Peninsula, is particularly spectacular.


While on Hong Kong’s version of Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, visitors can see some of the territory’s most famous tourist attractions: Victoria Peak, Victoria Harbor and of course, the Hong Kong skyline.

I won’t pretend to know all of the people whose names are engraved in the stars on the Avenue of Stars.

Three names stand out though: Bruce Lee, Jet Li and Jackie Chan. Who doesn’t know these martial artists anyway?

The Avenue of Stars is a tourists’ paradise – wherever they look there’s a subject worthy of being photographed.
