Shopping in Hong Kong
Although Hong Kong only covers a small area, the shops here rival those of any international city. This really is a city where there is something for everyone, whatever your budget!
At the top end of the scale, the big name designers all have branches here, most on Hong Kong Island in Central. Many of these luxurious stores have good Sales at various points in the year.
For those with slightly less money to spend but still after some quality clothing, the best boutiques can be found around Causeway Bay. Some of the best department stores in Hong Kong are also here including the New World Center, Times Square and Sogo Department Store.
Clothes are also sold at many of the lively markets. Great markets are scattered throughout the city. The best ones to browse include: Li Yuen
Street, Ladies Street, Temple Street and Shanghai Street. There is also a fabulous and vibrant market at Stanley, which is great to visit for the sights and sounds even if you are not interested in buying anything!
For electrical goods, again the best district is Central. Tsim Sha Tsui has a huge selection of emporiums selling everything under the sun, although bargains are not normally found here! What is arguably Hong Kong's best department store, Harbour City however, is located directly opposite the Star Ferry terminal. Mong Kok is another interesting area to wander and to pick up some typical Chinese goods.
