Traditional Chinese culture at a glance

Balancing between extravagant décor, royal grandeur and social hierarchy, the Forbidden City is a cornucopia of Chinese classical antiquity. Hong Kong, albeit as an ultra-modern city, has an unimaginable wealth of cultural history. Hollywood Road, home to Tai Kwun and Man Mo Temple, is a vivid reminder of Hong Kong’s heritage. In this exhibition, the image of the front part of The Garden of the Palace of Tranquil Longevity in the Forbidden City, also commonly known as the Qianlong Garden, and Hollywood Road in the heart of Hong Kong are displayed alongside the video tour. Visitors can catch a glimpse of the giant palace and discover more about local heritage.
