Sitting majestically in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District lies a US$450mil (approximately RM2bil) building housing an eye-catching list of national treasures poised to share China’s history and culture to the world.

Less than four months since opening its doors last July, the Hong Kong Palace Museum has welcomed more than 500,000 visitors, and the numbers keep on growing through the months, with 7,000 daily entries.
