Macau's UNESCO heritage Pawn Shop
So pawn shops have been around for a very long time here and you’ve probably seen the emblem in neon and as badges around Hong Kong and Macau – it’s actually an outline of a bat holding on to a ball. The word bat in Cantonese Fu is homophonous with the word prosperity. Tak Seng On was then Macau’s largest multi storey Pawn Shop and given it's UNESCO heritage status as it's the surviving unaltered structure since it was built in 1917.
