By TraNews Reporter Sun, Chih-Chuan TAOYUAN, TAIWAN (TraNews) – Hollywood Road is a well-known street that runs between Central District and Upper District on Hong Kong Island. However, people often assume the street has anything to do with Hollywood, the centre of the American film industry. According to records, many of white myrtles (Auranticarpa rhombifolia), commonly known as Hollywood, were planted in the area back in the early days, so the Hollywood Road is named. Hollywood Road and Upper Lascar Row (also known as Antique Street) are must-see stops on many visitors’ itineraries. Crammed with antique shops and quaint stores of all sorts, these destinations are ideal places for picking up intriguing souvenirs and gifts. Visitors to Antique Street are drawn to the wide variety of antiques, handicrafts, porcelain ware and artworks, not to mention that some of which are quite valuable. Nearby Man Mo Temple is a grade one historic building dedicated to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo). The temple is situated at the intersection between Hollywood Road and Ladder Street. Built in 1947, the temple is one of the oldest temples in Hong Kong. The layout and atmosphere of the temple is quite similar to other traditional Chinese temples. The only difference is that visitors can see giant incense coils of all sorts hanging from the ceiling of the temple. In addition to Man Mo Temple, there are also many temples and churches in the vicinity of Hollywood Road worth checking out. How to get there: Hollywood Road / Upper Lascar Row / Man Mo Temple 1.
