A piece of Hong Kong: Street spirit
As Hong Kong's second oldest road, Hollywood Road was built in 1844, much before the more famous Hollywood in California was given its name.
The road, linking Sheung Wan with Central, used to be a place where Chinese merchants came to trade antiques and artifacts with Europeans. Today, it is home to a great variety of art galleries and antique shops. Here, travelers can find all sorts of trinkets and art: from Chinese furniture, porcelain ware and Buddha sculptures to Tibetan rugs, Japanese netsukes and Coromandel screens. However, it may take the eyes of a historian to pick the truly rare and valuable antiquities from the trinkets sold to clueless tourists.
