"Antiques Street" Central District Tip by Willettsworld

Central District, Hong Kong: 115 reviews and 174 photos


Hollywood Road was the first street in Hong Kong. Shortly after the British arrived here in 1841, a substantial Chinese residential and commercial district known as Tai Ping Shan sprang up in the area and quickly became the centre of the Chinese community. In those days, foreign merchants and sailors would put up the antiques and artefacts they had "collected" from China for sale here on their way back to Europe. This is how Hollywood Road began its role as an antique market.
