In a city stacked with skyscrapers and lit under the haze of neon signs you might not expect to find some of the world's greatest historical treasures but that's exactly what Hong Kong offers.

While Mao and his manic Red Guard set about bulldozing much of China's history and heritage, Hong Kongers set about saving it...saving it and selling it. The city has been a haven for China's heritage for decades and remains the best place in the world to pick up Chinese antiques. Many of the family run antique dealers are generations old and have expert knowledge of every sort of antique available on the market.
