2. Bruce Lee's Abandoned Home
Bruce Lee gained worldwide recognition as a martial artist with incredible fight moves. His mansion was swiftly acquired following his passing in 1973 at 32 years of age. The house was purchased by Chinese benefactor Yu Pang-lin in 1974, who transformed it into a "love hotel" with rooms available for hourly rental.
Later, Yu Pang-lin planned to convert it into a museum, but the government rejected his ideas. He bequeathed the property and his whole inheritance to charity when he passed away in 2015.
Sadly, the house had structural issues, making maintenance almost impossible. The remaining portions of the building were destroyed and turned into a building for Chinese studies, except for four window frames and a vibrant Lee mosaic framework.
