The auctions are held every spring and fall at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centrer (26 Harbour Road, Wan Chai). If you want to buy a rare articles after Hong Kong tour packages, you can go there.
Sotheby's Spring Exhibition and Auction will open for viewing on March 26, with auctions for Chinese classical works on April 4. Christie's Spring Exhibition and Auction will take place from April 24 to 30.
The Hong Kong Museum of Art (one of famous Hong Kong scenic spots) (10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon; 852-2721-0116; www.lcsd.gov.hk/ce/Museum/Arts).provides an energetic, accessible introduction to Chinese art. The classical galleries can be seen in a few hours, but taking in the modern exhibits and the sculpture garden as well can occupy the entire afternoon until closing time, 6 p.m. on weekdays and 8 p.m. on Saturdays.
That's the right time to end up on the museum's spacious waterfront plaza facing Victoria Harbor, overlooking the towers of Hong Kong Island. The view is even better from the Lobby Lounge of the old Regent Hotel (now the InterContinental) next door. But after dusk it's best from the nearby Star Ferry , from Tsim Sha Tsui pier just west of the museum. To either pier, Wan Chai or Central, it costs up to 3 Hong Kong dollars (about 40 cents at 7.5 Hong Kong dollars to the United States dollar).
Other museums include: The Museum of Tea Ware (10 Cotton Tree Drive, Central; 852-2869- 0690; ); the Art Museum, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shatin, New Territories; 852-3943-7416; ); and University Museum and Art Gallery, University of Hong Kong (90 Bonham Road, Pokfulam; 852-2241-5500;).
Among the Hollywood Road galleries, these are mentioned by Chinese antiquities experts as especially well-informed, welcoming and trustworthy: Joyce Gallery (123 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan; 852-2545-1869;), and Tai Sing Fine Antiques (12 Wyndham Street, Central; 852-2525-9365).
Jutting into the harbor, the convention center nudges up to a cluster of big-name, costly but somewhat generic hotel restaurants. To rub shoulders with a more lively crowd for artisanal cocktails, it's a short ride into Wan Chai to the Pawn (62 Johnston Road, Wan Chai; 852-2866-3444;). Take the unmarked, surreptitious-looking winding staircase set into a renovated pawnshop with generous balconies for watching over the night scene.
