On the first day of my visit to Hong Kong did a bit of shopping along Nathan Road, and walk around the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade along the Victoria Harbour waterfront.
There are a few museums and then went to Gardens of stars as the Avenue of Stars which was closed cause of renovation.

The Clock Tower
The Clock Tower is also known as the Tsim Sha Clock tower. It is the only remnant of the original site of the former Kowloon Station on the Kowloon-Canton Railway.
Hence why it’s officially named Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower. The Clock Tower peaks at 44 meters and is topped by a 7-meter lightning rod.
Visiting The Museum
Tried visiting the Space Museum which was closed cause it was under renovation. That left the Science Museum to visit which was a short 20 min walk away from the Tsim Sha pier.
The museum was fairly cheap at HK$30 which included the exhibitions.
There were 3 levels that had a kid’s exploration section on the top level. There were no real queues to get in but were building up went I was leaving.
They had some interesting demonstrations in the other sections. But at the end of the day, it was more suited for kids.
Gardens Of Stars
With the Avenue of the Stars being under renovation, it seems to have been relocated to the TST East Waterfront Podium Garden.
With it being a temporary setup, it still has the hand imprints of some celebrities and has the statue of Bruce Lee.
The Lights Show (Symphony of Lights)
Every night at 8 pm, there is a light show also called the Symphony of Lights show at Victoria harbor.
A nightly multimedia show that combines colored lights, laser beams, music, and collaboration with 44 waterfront buildings in both Hong Kong and Kowloon
The Skyline at Night
The Hong Kong skyline at night is a sight to see. And is a must-see.
