Hollywood Road is an antique lover's paradise. The street is filled with curio and antique shops of all kinds: from Chinese furniture to porcelain ware, from Buddha sculptures to oriental rugs, from Japanese netsukes to Coromandel screens. Aside from all the antique shops, it has numerous small specialty shops that sell unique home accessories and handmade products. Many of them are inside buildings on upper floors, so always remember to look above street level so as not to miss them.
Great strolling and looking in at fascinating antique shops. You can buy a genuine Tang Dynasty horse with a proper certificate - they are exquisite. This road has lots of atmosphere and was named in British colonial times after the hollywood trees that used to line it, not the movie place in LA.
If you're looking for antiques, this is the place for you. If you're looking for a bargain, well, you should probably look elsewhere. Hollywood Road is a great place to walk and explore, but the prices of antiques are a bit high. Bangkok offers a better value if you are a serious antique buyer (but don't let your guard down when negotiating - we find the warm attitudes and friendly smiles in Thailand to be very decieving when it comes to negotiating deals, so beware).
The best value on Hollywood Road is at a little place I found tucked away on the second floor in a building called the Platinum. The antiques are the real deal and are quite beautiful. The shop can only be accessed from the side street Aberdeen(the building sits on the corner of Hollywood Road and Aberdeen). At the little side entrance of this little unassuming service apartment building you will find an old Hong Kong couples fruit/juice stand. They have been there many years, do not speak English, but are the extremely pleasant and will make you a cup of juice to your specifications that you can take along as you view the beautiful anitiques in this little shop.
Enjoy and happy exploring.
Here you will find amazing art and antiques but few bargains. If you don't know how to shop for antiques then be careful. If you're not buying, it is still a wonderful place to explore and can be an interesting history lesson as antique dealers explain their wares. Nearby is SoHo (South Hollywood) with lots of restaurants and bars where you can recharge after power shopping.
