    Nathan Road: Just use common sense

    by jlanza29 Updated Jun 20, 2011

    Ok, here's a section of town you must be on top of your game if not you will pay dearly with some of the prices....first of all if you must buy electronics here be for-warned the prices aren't very good, then check to see if you get what you are paying for.....don't let anything out of your sight, such as a box, and if you insist in paying with your credit card have them swipe the card right in front of you....don't let them take it to the realize that there running your credit card up when you return use utmost COMMON SENSE when shopping here.....if you see a $3000 camera for $1000 ask a lot of stick to the saying "if it's to good to be true, it probably isn't" Tons, and tons of people get ripped off here, but yet people still come here ??????

    Nathan Road: The Tsim Sha Tsui Precinct

    by swissfondue Updated Jun 7, 2012

    Tsim Sha Tsui has the greatest concentration of shops in Hong Kong.

    Nathan Road which runs south to north through Kowloon is 4km long. This most famous of Hong Kong thoroughfares is jam packed with stores at its southern end selling clothes, jewellery, sunglasses, cameras, electronic goods, arts and crafts, shoes, handbags, luggage, and watches. This is also the place to find a tailor. Unfortunately this area of Kowloon is well known as the home of "bait and switch" retailing so keep this in mind.

    Make sure you also explore the side streets off Nathan Road, especially Granville Road which specialises in outlet style shops selling silk and casual clothing and fun, youth-oriented fashions at pretty moderate prices. There are also a SOGO Department store in Salisbury Road and numerous chinese Emporiums, and shopping arcades.

    There are a few mid sized shopping malls. K11 (which I have reviewed separately under shopping tips) is located in Mody Road. There is also I- Square in Nathan Road and Silvercord in Canton Road (separate review under my shopping tips).

    Harbour City also located on Canton Road is the largest shopping centre in Hong Kong while Elements, attached to Kowloon Station is one of the newest in Kowloon and one I personally like because of its layout and visual appeal.

    I just stayed in one of the mansion which located in HK Nathan Road. The Chung King Mansion. One of the cheapest Mansion in Hong Kong. When I just went down. There is a shopping
    mall downstair. This probably the only shopping mall in basement in Hong Kong. If you feel very hot then you must go there because they have the strongest ac there. There are different
    style restaurants. One of the local restaurant is famous for their milk tea. However, some of the shops which sell clothes are over priced, that is what I guess. One good thing
    is that they put the mall online. I can buy the stuff through their online plaftform. They claimed that can ship to my country and if I want anything which is not available buying
    from their online, they will help me to source it.

    Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui: Shopping @ Parklane

    by coolpanda87 Updated Jan 28, 2004
    Nathan Road

    In this stretch of Nathan Road, there are many stores waiting for your patronage, including department stores, clothing, Chinese antiques, food, Chinese Herbs & electronics.

    Since the Central Government's decision to let more Mainland Chinese visit Hong Kong, the streets throughout Hong Kong have filled up with eager shoppers, so be ready to go against the crowd.

    What to buy: There are a lot to see & buy here...

    What to pay: more than 50 HKD

    Nathan Road

    Nathan Road is the primary district in Kowloon for modern shopping and restaurants. This street definitely can induce sensory overload.
