The ultimate guide to shopping in Hong Kong
Catering to all shoppers!
Calling Hong Kong, a shopper’s paradise might sound cliché, but still, the place stands true to it alright! From classy malls to kiosks on the pavement and the night markets all around the island, one can feel quite adventurous when shopping as there is so much to explore! Here are a few things to check out when shopping in Hong Kong.
If you are an enthusiastic antique collector, you’ll definitely find some good pieces of Chinese antiques in Hong Kong. That being said, you’ll have to know where to look for the real thing rather than forged items or expert remakes. The auction houses are guaranteed to sell genuine antiques.
Love art? Take a walk down Wyndham Street and Hollywood Road and you’ll see plenty of art galleries to visit. Chinese artists and other Asian artists too display their arts in these galleries. Paintings, sculptures and ceramic works too are available for purchase at the galleries located not far from many a Hong Kong boutique hotel.
Looking for those world-class brands for a good buy on clothing? That shouldn’t be too hard in Hong Kong with malls like Times Square at Causeway Bay and Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui. There are a few midrange malls for second-tier brands as well. Since the malls are so easy to get to from hotels like Cosmo Hotel Hong Kong, make your way to stores like Prada to take advantage of seasonal offers.
The street markets in Hong Kong are full of items that have been imported from mainland China or Korea. You’ll come across some cool items and chic clothing here. Make sure you negotiate for the best price.
