The Essential Guide to Shopping in Hong Kong
A shopping paradise
When it comes to shopping Hong Kong is so famous for it that it needs no introduction. The streets are filled with shops, markets and malls, so you might as well go to town! No matter what you are looking for you are bound to find it here in Hong Kong.
There are many antique shops in Hong Kong selling Chinese antiques mostly. But beware of forgeries and replicas mad you well you can never tell the difference unless you’ve got the eye for it. Collectors usually stick to auction houses and well reputed shops for this reason. Shopping in Mongkok, Hong Kong or anywhere here required an eye for quality.
Taking clothing into account, there are many branded clothing shops here in Hong Kong. Find the best quality clothing at malls like Times Square in Causeway Bay, Pacific Place in Admiralty and Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui. If you are looking for something unique, there are independent shops that have been opened by local designers as well.
If you are concerned about your budget, but still want something up too standard, you need to head over to the mini malls in Tsim Sha Tsui. Here you’ll find stuff by local designers as well as items imported from Korea and the mainland. The place is just an 8-minute drive away from Dorsett Mongkok.
If you are in Hong Kong, how about taking back with you some jade jewellery? Find a wide choice in Yau Ma Tei. However, again beware of deceiving sellers. You’ll also find both cultured and freshwater pearls here.
