This grand mansion is one of the finest examples of traditional Chinese architecture that's still left in the city

This palatial Mid-Levels mansion may be fit for a king (or indeed an emperor), but it’s sat empty for 10 years while the government figures out what to do with it. Completed in 1937 for entrepreneur Li Po-lun and her family, the stunning three-storey home wears its Chinese heritage loud and proud with its temple-like roof clad in viridian bamboo-shaped tiles, windows in the shape of circular longevity symbols, and granite balustrades.
