Hong Kong: Avenue of Stars and Andy Warhol

The morning of our third day in Hong Kong found us walking along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade.  We were waiting for the art museum to open and had about thirty minutes to kill.  Fortunately, the museum is right on the waterfront of Kowloon, looking across to Hong Kong Island.  This promenade features the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars.  Although we did not recognize all of the names on the stars, we did see a few major names. 

During our trip, there just happened to be a fantastic exhibit at the art museum-Andy Warhol 15 Minutes Eternal.  The artist in me was giddy with excitement.  We bought the special exhibit tickets (that also would allow us to see the other regular exhibits) for the extremely reasonable price of about three US dollars.  (Museums in Hong Kong are cheap and good.  Go to as many as you can!)

When we had finished, we made our way over to Hong Kong Island to meet a friend for some dim sum. 

If you find yourself in Hong Kong wondering what to have for lunch or dinner (or breakfast) go for dim sum.  The variety is wide and always delicious.   In fact, we had dim sum again that evening for dinner.  Yum! 

Pin It!
