6 Of The Best Shopping Spots In Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a bustling metropolis that oozes an electric energy. It is a densely packed city that boasts over 8,000 skyscrapers, the most in the world, and around 7.2 million inhabitants.
Hong Kong is truly a shopping mecca whereby window shopping is considered an active sport. Should you ever have the pleasure of visiting this vibrant city, then be sure to check out the following shopping spots.
Granville Road in Tsim Sha Tsui
If you enjoy setting trends and are constantly on the hunt for unique clothing and accessories, then look no further than Granville Road. The quality of products is good although the prices are not the cheapest. There are some quirky shops that each have different offerings that vary from watches and sunglasses to dresses and shoes. This is a definite must see for the true fashionista!
Temple Street Night Market in Yau Ma Tei
Temple Street is cluttered with stalls selling bags, purses, watches, clothes and footwear to name a few. It is not the cheapest market in the city but it is definitely the liveliest. Temple Street is worth the visit even if it is to just stroll the narrow alleyways and experience the electric atmosphere of Hong Kong by night.
Tung Choi Street in Mong Kok
The southern section of Tung Chou Street has popularly become known as Ladies market. The offerings on this street are pretty self-explanatory given the name. Product quality varies from shop to shop and what makes this market especially appealing is the fact that most of the prices are really cheap! Don’t be afraid to bring out the bargain hunter in you as one can still easily negotiate hefty discounts on already low prices.
Stanley market in Stanley
You may be surprised to find that just a stone’s throw away from the city centre of Hong Kong lies a picturesque village that borders on the South China Sea. Stanley market offers a large selection of souvenirs, ornaments and jewellery at reasonable prices. Strolling along the promenade is also a nice change to the hectic pace of the city centre. Be sure to stop off for a coffee and delicious bite to eat at Stanley Cave.
Harbour city is Hong Kong’s largest, and arguably most glamorous mall with over 700 shops, three hotels and two cinemas. It is located along Victoria Harbour and spans 8 million square feet. It is an international shopping landmark that offers world-class brands such as Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein and Lacoste. Walking the halls of this pristine centre takes window shopping to the next level.
This list is not exhaustive as Hong Kong offers an infinite amount of varying shopping experiences. However these are a few of my favourite places to shop.
