  • Built in 1937, King Yin Lei is one of Hong Kong's best examples of Chinese Renaissance architecture. It is a sprawling palace built by a Chinese woman entrepreneur at a time when both women and Chinese people were not welcome in the upper echelons of colonial Hong Kong society. And yet, ever since King Yin Lei was saved from demolition in 2007, it has remained a mystery to the public - except for a few precious days a year when its green metal gates are thrown open to visitors. The house is divided into 3 wings surrounding a central courtyard. The exterior walls are clad in red brick that stands in contrast to the curved house, but it is hard to imagine what it would have been like in the glory days of King Yin Lei, as many of its original features have been altered, including an auspicious half-moon-shaped pond that was filled in at some point in the past.
