H&M store at the front entrance of Langham
A cinema run by UA cinemas with six houses and 1,122 seats is on the 8th, but they also have ticketing windows on the back side of the ground floor.
You need not climb every level or wait painfully for the lifts to reach the high areas, as they have two pairs of Xpresscalators - temporarily the longest indoors escalators here - in the mall. One of which leads you from the the 4th floor instantly to the 8th, another pair consecutively from the 8th to the 12th.
At the other end of the Xpresscalator, you will arrive at the Ozone, the premium dining area consisting of the 12th and 13th floor. Under the hypnotic imagery of the Digital Sky, this is the perfect venue to dine at no matter you are at the chic restaurants or the bars or the cafes in Ozone.

Come to this bright shopping centre with the breathtaking architecture and open-air terraces. Easy to find while situated right above the Hong Kong Station and, only 2 minutes away from the Outlying Island Ferries ... this is International Finance Centre, better said "are 2 IFC", because of 2 tower complexes!
The first was completed in the year of 1998, 210m. tall and has 38 storeys with ... yep, 18 high speed lifts, double-deck elevators. It is the second IFC building that got so famous. This is the tallest building of Hong Kong, and has 88 storeys, a lucky number to the Cantonese people who believe that 88 is an extremely auspicious and good balanced number. That happened with the Emporis Skyscraper Award 2003 which was awarded to the "best 2 new skyscrapers" of 2003 ...
What to buy: Well, it is not the most expensive mall of Hong Kong, though I think the prices are spicy, and surely not below the market. I shopped there for the breathtaking architecture, the exciting atmosphere, the inspiring building, the artistic views ... really!
What to pay: High-fashion boutiques all around even have deals and sales, still an Calvin Klein T-shirt you will have to pay about 100$ ... and if lucky about 40.
Our hotel was located within the shopping complex, so this was a natural place for us to do our shopping. Pacific Place is a designer shopping center carrying many of the large designer stores, specialty shops, banking institutions, health and beauty supply stores, and anything else you would expect to find in a shopping center.
You will be in heaven shopping your favorite designer labels like Christian Dior, Fendi, Coach, Dolce & Gabana, Burberry, Channel just to name a few. There is also a large food court with fantastic restaurants
What to buy: A shopping complex, you will find every type of store you may be looking for.
What to pay: From average to expensive.

*personally prefer the shopping mall in Tsing Yi, selling more variety of items, but more crowded...
**"Old Market Review" mentioned in the Maritime Square's webpage is appealing right? but it's already removed...
Festival Walk is the largest & one of the most upscale in the city. It has over six floors, & takes at least a half a day to explore. To some, it might remind you of the American MegaMalls. Under this mall is the MTR -KCR interchange, where over one million people away change from train to subway & vice versa. It has become one of the most important transportation hubs in Hong Kong.
Many world brand names have opened here, including Marks & Spencer(largest in HK), Espirit, Disney Store, Polo Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Escada Sport, TCNY, French Connection, MANGO, Armani Exchange, CHANEL, MAC, Aveda, Estee Lauder, Michael Rene, Tommy Hilifiger ......
In addition to the 200 + stores in the mall, there is an AMC(movie theatre) & Hk's largest skating rink.
It is very interesting to see people skate @ Festival Walk, for unlike North America, there are less than 10 ice rinks in Hong Kong. First of all, not many people in HK like the cold, & second there isn't space & capital(land is very expensive) in Hong Kong to operate large scale skating rinks.
Instead of just skating around, a lot of skaters here hold on to each other to form a snake, & you could see the one at the front struggling to get everyone moving. Sometimes people would get so scared that once the line wobbles, everyone runs towards the boards, causing people from behind to crash into them. This may not always happen, but it's very common.
What to buy: brand name ...
What to pay: 100 HKD +
Getting around via MTR in HK is very convenient. This is one shopping outlet you wouldn't want to miss. Brands on top of my mind: Mango, Esprit, The Body Shop, Addidas, Nike, Coach, Ralph Lauren, also go to Dickson Warehouse (Got my pair of mascotte shoes at 75% off). etc. It's worth the trip.
What to buy: Clothes, shoes
What to pay: save upto 90% off from suggested retail prices
Some souvenirs such as Chinese clothes, table sets, mobile phone bags, little souvenirs are cheaper than we bought in Ladies Street where every people think you can buy the cheapest thing.
What to buy: Chines name chops, Tee-shirts, key holders full of Hong Kong image.
What to pay: HKD60 up
Elements is one of the newest shopping malls, openend in 2008. It is divided into 5 zones base on the concept of the five elements of Nature, namely Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. Each zone is designed with a distinctive interior architectural theme that responds to the element, which makes orientation quite easy. Modern art points out the elements.
The Elements has a total of 123 shops as of 2008, along with an ice rink and the 1600-seat Grand Cinema, currently the largest cinema complex in Hong Kong.
The shopping mall has great emphasis on fashion and wardrobe with (as of 2008) 58 shops in that category out of a total of 123 shops in the mall.
It also houses a lot of restaurants.
What to buy: I was mainly fascinated by a big supermarket, which offers just everything of delicacies you can dream of.
for hobbyists looking for plastic (pvc) figures in different sizes like alien, terminator, army themed figures, gundam figures and some comic figures too... ctma center is the place... lots of floors to spend your time browsing... i remember seeing at least 3 floors...
A shopping mall I went to was Times Square, again in Causeway Bay, which boasts a massive 900,000 sq feet of retail space with more than 230 clothing and shoe shops but also a few electronics, gifts and stationary shops. There's also a multi-cinema complex, supermarket, restaurants as well as a branch of Marks & Spencer.
This is one of the biggest and most accessible factory outlets shopping centre in Hong Kong. Located in Tung Chung, it is very accessible by MTR. And best of all, all your branded goods are sold here at discounted prices. Although the items sold maybe be off-season, the wide selection offered plus the irresistible prices would not make shoppers think twice about buying them. You can spend almost the whole day here, so if you planning to go Ngong Ping or Disneyland, do go to these places first before coming here. Or better yet, dedicate a whole day for shopping here.
What to buy: All the popular brands have outlets here. Nike, Adidas, Timberland, CK, Armani, Polo, and the list is endless. While most stuff are displayed neatly in each shop, there are some in bins, so you might need the patience to look through every single items displayed or offered in the shop. Price might even differ for difference in sizes.
What to pay: Just bring your credit card
Times Square is considered the first of its kind, the first "vertical mall" in Hong Kong. Due to the high land price in Hong Kong, and the higher yield on retail property, Times Square departs from the common western model of the flat shopping mall. The space allocated to retail is configured over 9 storeys. The mall and lifts to the office tower are accessible by long escalators linking the ground floor podium and the first level of the mall.
What to buy: It basically have all the well-known shops like FCUK, Tommy, AX, Zara etc. Come during the summer sales when everything is discounted. There are also electronic shops where you might want to buy MP3 players, handphones. There are also sports apparel shops, but I find it cheaper in Singapore.
What to pay: It varies, the more things you buy, the more you spend. Just bring your credit card
