Avenue of Stars in Hong Kong will reopen again since January 31st after more than three years of renovation. Avenue of Stars pays tribute to those who helped make Hong Kong the "Hollywood of the East". Located in the Tsim Sha Tsui area, it was first opened in April, 2004. In October of 2015, it was closed due to the upgrading construction work project.
Avenue of Stars has been one of the most popular scenic sites in Hong Kong. It attracts 500,000 visitors every month who view handprints of local movie stars, exhibitions and cultural programs.
The much-loved statues of Bruce Lee, late local diva Anita Mui Yim-fong, cartoon character McDull and the Goddess of the Hong Kong Film Awards Association have been relocated to make them more accessible to tourists. The site also added handprints of five more stars during renovation.
According to Chui Ting-pong, the executive director of Hong Kong Tourism Association, more tourists are willing to visit the destination showcasing Hong Kong's film culture and brilliant achievement. Catering services close to the site for tourists have also been reorganized. At the same time, Hong Kong Transport Department will also implement new measures to ensure smooth public transport around the area.
