One of these many version is Traditional Chinese sold in Hong Kong. That's probably why Maritime Square on Tsing Yi Island has brought a life-size Monopoly board to its atrium! 



The best part of all, it is the CLASSIC Hong Kong version. Despite of the updated iterations in the past 20 years, the CLASSIC Hong Kong version is "street based" (instead of "locations based" or "landmark based"). The game began at Wan Chai Road and Percival Street; and loops back from Repulse Bay and Shek O.
