Trip to Hongkong and Macau - Day 3 - Tsim sha Tsui Promenade, Victoria Harbor, Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Lights Show

Trip to HongKong & Macau – Day 3

We had to check out & leave Macau to take a ferry directly to Kowloon and we checked out from the West Lobby & took the shuttle to Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal. We purchased the ferry tickets for TurboJet, which connects to Kowloon directly where our Hotel was located.They charged an extra 25 dollars for our luggage.

We had booked Eaton,HongKong for our 5 nights stay in HK which was close to Jordan MRT. It took about 50 minutes to reach Kowloon and we had our Immigration check in Kowloon Ferry Terminal. We  took a taxi to reach EATON Hotel located on Nathan Road

Eaton Hotel Hongkong- Location :

Eaton Hotel Hongkong is a 4 star hotel located in Nathan Road Kowloon which is approximately 5 min by walk from Jordan MTR station. The hotel is conveniently located next to a 7 eleven, foreign currency exchangers and the Jade and Temple street night markets are very close by. So would rate it 5 star for location.

Room  and Food :

We had booked the basic room and the room was comfortable and had all the basic amenities that were needed. The only down part of the room was that it felt a little cramped but keeping in mind the price and the overall space constraints in  Hongkong, we were not complaining. The food , especially the buffet breakfast was good , and we are pleased with everything that we had at the hotel. Overall a great hotel that I would surely recommend.
Swimming Pool: The pool is situated on the roof of Eaton Hotel. Very well maintained, clean & chic swimming pool..

Avenue of Stars Hongkong  :

How to get there ? Since Eaton Hotel, HK was close to Jordan MTR we walked to the MTR station & we took the train to  Tsim Tsha Tsui..From Tsim Sha Tsui follow the exit signs and you will be there in probably 15 minutes.   

Whats to see and do ?
Avenue  of Stars is a Hollywood style walkway where you get to see some life like statues of stars from the Chinese film industry. It is a place where residents of Hongkong and tourists alike throng for their morning / evening walk. Obviously the main attraction is Bruce Lee and we waited in line to take pics with the star. There are also hand prints of other famous stars most notably Jackie Chan and it was a great photo opportunity that we did not miss.

The Skyline is by  far the best skyline I have seen till now and it got better the more I looked at it either in the day or night. Avenue of Stars (along with Victoria Peak ) is the best place to watch and enjoy the skyline of the Hongkong side. There is also a Starbucks that is conveniently located and it is bliss sitting outside, sipping on some juice and enjoying the HK skyline

To add to all this there is Symphony of Lights laser show light show in which around 40 skyscrapers on the opposite side of harbor participate for about 10 minutes. The show starts everyday at 8 :00 PM and the same can be watched either from Avenue of Stars or by taking a dinner cruise aboard one of the Star Cruise ships. We did not take the cruise and post the show we went back to the hotel to dine in and retire early as we had a long day ahead next day.

Avenue of Stars Hongkong -Tips :

  • Star Cruise is really not worth it for the cost and you would get better views from the Aveneue of Stars. 
  • If you are planning to go to Disneyland better buy tickets at dedicated shops here to avoid queues at Disneyland.
