Shopping Complexes, Hong Kong
City Gate is about 15 minutes drive away from the airport. We had our last minute shopping here but only given 1 hour before making our way to the airport. There are many factory outlets here, the biggest one being "Esprit Factory Outlets". If I had more time here, I would definitely buy more clothings to stock up. Other factory outlets include "Levis", "Adidas", "OP" etc
What to buy: Esprit Tops
What to pay: Around HK 79 per top. I bought 3 without trying. (Not enough time!)
Well can you imagine buying something nice with heavily discount in Asia?! I thought only in the West shopholics can find outlet, but there are plenty of them here in Hong Kong. All of them locate in the remote places in the city. This one I just went there last week and I spent a lot on it.
What to buy: There are many brand store there, from sport wear like NIKE, PUMA, Addidas, to leisure wear Timberland, to private things like CK underwear, to top brand BALLY, BURBERRY, and LAVIN. Of course, Ralph Lauren is there too. Oh, they also have Fortress for 3C goods. All items sold here are out of season, but less 30% to 70% generally speaking. I bought a shirt and a vest. I enjoyed free Internet service in Pacific Cafe. If you come all the way from overseas, when you pay a visit to big Buddha Statue, please come and salvage something nice for yourself.
What to pay: Hong Kong Dollar and credit cards are main "currency" to pay, but RMB should be widely accepted.
Basically the mall in Tung Chung is like a factory outlet mall... Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Quicksilver, Polo, etc have outlets in the mall...
but you can get the same product at even lower price in Mongkok (sporting goods in Fa Yuen Street)....
if you really like an item, money is secondary... what if shops in Mongkok have no stock?
If you have a thing for the high end designer brands and goods, look no more than the Pacific Place shopping mall. It is here that you'll find Tiffany & Co, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada and the likes.
Experience the elegance and style of Hong Kong's premier shopping destination.
What to buy: Whatever you're looking for, you can find it here: everything from fashion and flowers to antiques and A/V equipment; clothing and computers to sushi and Shanghainese cuisine. Conveniently located at the heart of the city's business and entertainment districts, discover for yourself how Pacific Place has pioneered the concept of leisure shopping in Hong Kong.
Visit the Sha Tin shopping centre of NT, as it is one mega huge shopping complex. There is also a Snoopy's World located on the outside for all the under 10 year olds and for any stressed out parents! About 5 minutes away from the centre is Ikea the swedish store and the 10 thousand buddhas.
What to buy: Anything you like, shop and sightsee at the same time!
Complete getaway for shopping experiences! From Louis Vuitton to anything you will need. By the way, Louis Vuitton shops here have a cheaper price compared to Philippines. It saves you around 6 to 8 thousand pesos on several bags.
If I have a couple of hours transit in Hong Kong, I usually go to the shopping mall in Tung Chung. Bus S64 and S1 goes from the airport to Tung Chung. It costs $3.5 each way.
CityGate shopping mall is located in the same complex with the Tung Chung MTR station.
What to buy: You can buy clothes, sporting goods, books, food & drink (at the food court and the cafe).
Esprit outlet can be found here. Also you can find some local brands of lady's clothes.
I also like to buy candies and chocolates at Aji Ichiban.
What to pay: not so expensive
Not the same Times Square you might find in New York, but this very large shopping complex is consist of department store Lane Crawford and other retails anchors. if you are into Christmas shopping this is the wonderful place.
Another place that I usually visit when I stop for a short transit in Hong Kong is the Maritime Square in Tsing Yi. It's a shopping mall located in the same complex with the AEL station.
What to buy: Clothes, books, food & drink, etc.
One of the Chinese restaurants there is good.
What to pay: normal price
Peak Galleria is located at Victoria Peak lookout, and unexpectedly a decent mall. Not as over priced as we were expecting being that it is at Hong Kongs biggest tourist attraction and we actually found some good bargains on some souveniers.
The best part about the Peak Galleria is that it makes for a great place to pass the time while you wait for sunset. If you arrive in late evening at Victoria to see it by day, and by night, then the Galleria is the place to go while you wait for the city lights to come on. Also a great place to get a bite to eat, and catch some views of Hong Kongs Southern shores.
Times Square is located in the Causeway District on Hong Kong Island. It is one of the biggest shopping malls in Hong Kong, with over 230 shops, spread out over 16 floors. It is also one of your more pricier malls of Hong Kong as well, with stores like Gucci, Lacoste, MARKS & SPENCER, French Connection, FIORUCCI, Bossini, Bally, and TOMMY HILFIGER just to name a few. You could definitly max out your Visa, and MasterCard here.
The Restaurants are not cheap either, but we found California Pizza Kitchen to be within our budget, located on the 13th floor of the mall. Just like any other Californina Pizza Kitchen, except located in Hong Kong.
Though most of the shops are out of my price range, it was a great place to window shop, and just walk around.
This giant shopping mall with 300 shops, restaurants and cinemas is located in the heart of Mong Kok. It is the architectural design that is what I like the most about the mall. Its design is not traditional, very open concept, with escarlators that skip some floors and stairs that go up or down without any pattern. If this is your first time to the mall, you'll surely stop and look up as soon as you enter the food court level. Part of the floor opens all the way to the top - 8-10 floors up, with huge metal spiral decorations that shpaed like a tree. Huge windows bring warm sunlight into the building. There are 15 floors that you can explore!
Some interesting background info about this area: The mall, the office tower and the 5-star hotel complex is the government's attempt to clean up this area, which is better known for the adult entertainment business. They are just a block away and are still up and running.
What to pay: Above average compare to the street level shops in Mong Kok, as the mall itself is a bit more upscale.
Times Square is a very nice mall type shopping center in Causeway bay. Its a great place to go shopping, but dont expect any deals. There are a few floors of food, a few clothing and a few electronics. I only went to the electronics stores so i cant say too much about anything else. I thought maybe the electronics like cameras, video cameras and accessories would be a little cheaper. I came here hoping i could find another digital camera. Everything here when translated in US Dollars was pretty much the same price. A few things even cost more. I went into almost all the electronics stores although they were all comparable in price they couldnt give me any deals. I also tried to find different equipment but everything was also the same. So i wouldnt recommend buying electronics here, even though the prices are the same you wont have that warranty if you purchase here... unless you live there of course... Other than that, the place is really clean and you should check it out...
What to buy: I heard there are some really cheap places to buy electronics in hong Kong, and they said check out Causeway bay, but i couldnt find the cheaper stuff...
Ocean Terminal, Ocean Centre and Harbour City are three interconnected shopping malls in downtown Kowloon which together contain more than 750 shops and restaurants. There are lots of fashionable clothes stores and boutiques, a food court and a cinema in Harbour City. It's easy to lose your way inside, but there are information desks to help you.
What to buy: Clothes, jewellery, watches, perfume, cosmetics etc.
One of the many malls of Hong Kong, the New World Centre offers shoppers a variety of shops.
Within the complex you can expect to see department stores, restaurants, fashion stores, and many many more.
Only a few minutes walk from the Start Ferry Terminal and from Tsin Sha Tsui station, its on a good location if you have the urge to spend some dollars.
At night the centre is easily recognisable as the outside is lit up with lights that change colour, very cool indeed!
