I saw a HUGE billboard for this store in Nathan Road and thought to myself "Ive gotta go here!" I asked a westerner one day and they told me it was in Canton Road and walking distance from Hop Inn, so I think it was about day 5 and I did a solo venture to find it! Basically H&M is relatively cheap and affordable womens clothing, I would equate it to something like Katies or Suzanne Grae or JJ's in Australia. I bought a couple tops here for $99HK each and some jewellery and a scarf, and Id definitely say its worth a look, especially if you cannot afford the High End Stores and you dont just wanna buy all market stuff. I also found a H&M Store in Langham Place, Mongkok so Id say there are several throughout HK.
What to buy: Affordable ladies clothing and accessories
You can't miss them. They are omnipotent. They are everywhere. You can't turn into a road without seeing at least one of their shops. With mainland China so close for mass manufacturing, these Hong Kong made good brands had gone International. Cheap, good and durable, it may be time for you to grab some designs, especially during any of the Sales period in HK.
What to buy: They sell everything: Tops, Bottoms, Undies, Socks, Umbrellas, Winter Wear, Belts etc etc
What to pay: Very very competitive prices. A T shirt could go for like US$5.
Welcome to one the most fashonable cities in Asia! You will be spoilt for choices on this one. It really depends on your budget and time. If you wanna see the high end ones, and have a budget, then I shall opt for Ocean terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui, three connecting huge shopping centre take up the whole block, that's what shopper's dream is made of!
Let's do Kowloon first:
For the middle to lower end, which there are plenty in HK, opt for Mongkok, u will see endless streams of good clothing shops dotting around, just use your instinct. Some brands are pretty good and nicely priced such as Giordano, Bossini, Baleno, Samuel and Kevin, etc....the list is endless.
For the ultimate experience is outlet clothes or factory seconds, opt for Fa Yuen Street, which can be reached via MTR (Prince Edward) This is no longer a secret that foreigners flock to here to buy some of the latest fashion at cut throat price. But beware, most shops here take cash only and no fitting, you may want to bring a tape measurer to see if the clothes will fit. Also check carefully the condition of the garment, as there will be no exchange as well.
For Hong Kong island:
The high ends are in Central (Landmark, Galleria, Prince building, etc), Admiralty (Pacific place), all can be reached by MTR easily. For middle to lower ends, go for Causeway bay, possibly is the best place to hang around for fashion on HK island, there are good department stores (Sogo!) and shops everywhere u eyes can see, let your instinct takes you....
What to buy: Best HK brands, check these out:
Men and women:
Giordano, Bossini, Baleno, Samuel and Kevin, BSX, G 2000
Good working clothes
Shop until you drop!
No really, you can shop until you pass out here.
I am a girl who really likes to shop, but here I've gotten to the point where even I can say... no more floral dresses!
This street has housewares, bags, underwear, clothes for children, ladies, men, pajamas, fruit... you name it, they have it!
Bargain a little, but the prices are low and reasonable anyway.
The best thing about this place (apart from the cheap underwear... $18 for two cute bras?) is that the shops lining the street are also cheap--little cubbies that always have discounts and sell the chicest things. It's a teen shopping paradise.
And when you get hungry? pick up some cheap sweets, breads or fruits along the way.
What to buy: Everything!
What to pay: Flats-- $80
Tshirts-- 2 for $25 or less
and more, and more...
I am one of the typical men that doesn't like shopping too much. Worse than that is when your partner likes shopping a lot and you both end up in the shopping paradise called Hong Kong.
But I have to say, Initial has a lot of cool stuff for your girl, but the prices are a killer.
But really, give it a try, the designer really made some nice pieces.
What to buy: The have all kind of womens wear, some outlets also carry stuff for men.
What to pay: We bought a cool skirt for HKD 990.
There are many stalls selling a variety of things on Tai Yuen Street and the nearby street, from clothing to fresh fruits and vegetables. This is how traditional street market looks like.
Unfortunately, few traditional markets are left today as the government considered it as unsanitary and disturbing traffic flow. More and more shops are moving into malls or wet markets in government multi-purpose buildings.
There are also many cheap clothing wholesalers along Johnston Road, selling mostly women's clothing. Well worth to have a look.
As said here, Shenzhen is the place to go for the real cheap suits. I paid 300 HK Dollars for each of mine. The quality is not too bad either, but you do get what you pay for, remember that. So if you are quite active while using your suits, they might not last too long..
Bevare that they for some reason make the jackets a litle small, so make sure they make them the right size for you..
As for HK. there are loads of places to go, and i will not guarantee you that the quality is that much better. But the fabric is a litle better, no doubt. The price you end up with comes down to your bargaining skills and how close you are to the tourist areas..
But in the streets around Fat angelos there are quite a few decent tailors. Stay away from the indian guys at Nathan Road.
What to pay: From HK 300 and upwards. Depends on which side of the border you're at..
You can find bargain-priced clothing & accessories etc on Fa Yuen Street and Tung Choi Street (Ladies' Market), Mong Kok.
For fashion chain shops can go to shopping malls like Festival Walk in Kowloon Tong, Times Sqaure in Causeway Bay.
More brand-name luxury goods - can go to Pacifc Place in Admiralty.
More information for the shopping advice from the following link:
What to buy: Can find everything from fashion labels to casual wear or accessories
What to pay: From bargain-priced to luxury goods.
It is a street market similar to that you can find in Temple Street aka Ladies Market. However, there are also 2 rows of shops selling clothes and accessories alongside the market stalls. I found more things to buy there than Ladies Market.
Opens daily from 11am to 9.30pm
What to buy: Clothings, accessories for everyone, but mainly for women.
What to pay: HKD50 upwards
Hong Kong Industrial Centre is a multi-storey wholesale centre that sells mainly women clothings and accessories. There are easily 100 shops there and they are usually busy with import and export purchasers in the mornings. However, if you go there in the afternoon when they are less busy, they are willing to sell to entertain retail buyers. There are a wider range of fashionable clothes, better quality than that found in Ladies Market or Flower Market (Fa Yuen Gai).
NOTE: They are close on Sundays!!
What to buy: Women clothes and accessories
What to pay: Cheaper than retail outlets.
