Beautiful Nights

I will start by stating that one of my favorite parts of Hong Kong is the awesome night views. When darkness falls on this busy metropolis, dozens of buildings all around the waterfront on both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island light up in all kinds of colors and designs. At 8 PM every night there is a show called The Symphony of Light in which these buildings all work together to pulse lasers and light up their lights along to some techno-Chinese music. Ultimately though, you don't have to see this show to see the awesomeness of Hong Kong at night.

The view of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon

After having a fabulous sushi dinner in Tsim Sha Tsui (TST), a couple of friends and I made our way over to the Avenue of Stars, from which you can see the view above and more. This promenade along the waterfront commemorates all the big names in the Hong Kong film industry (kung fu films).

Hello film lady.

As you walk along, there are plaques spaced evenly out on the ground. On each is the name (and usually the handprints) of a notable actor or actress from Hong Kong.

Bruce Lee!
Further along this avenue, is the man himself!

Well....a very cool statue at least.
The air was warm and full of salty sea smell. As I walked along, I could see the occasional junk boat pass by with full red sails.
