Travelodge Central, Hollywood Road
One of the oldest streets in Hong Kong – the second road to be built when Hong Kong was founded in 1842, Hollywood Road is famous for its antique shops and art galleries. More than a hundred years ago, the street was somewhat close to the coastline. In those days, foreign merchants and sailors would sell the antiques and artefacts that they “collected” from China on their way back to Europe. Thus began Hollywood Road’s role as an antique market. Fast forward to the present, riding the wave of international fame, art galleries like Connoisseur Art Gallery and LA GALERIE, PARIS 1839 are found all over the street displaying works from some of China’s most well known artists. Those looking for Chinese contemporary art will not be disappointed.
