    Souvenir outlets near the Cathedral, Plaza area: Macao - Buying Souvenir

    by SLLiew Written Feb 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Macao, there are plenty of souvenirs from Mainland China.

    Local items are those showing the tourist sites like the Cathedral, Fort, Lighthouse and the Portuguese colonial buildings and square.

    Almost bought a cup of Starbucks with the Macau logo. Ended with just a refrigerator magnet because did not change enough local currency. Next time....

    Souvenir Outlets at Tsimshatsui, Central: Hong Kong - Buying Souvenir

    by SLLiew Written Feb 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of the souvenir in Hong Kong is from China.

    Before China was open for major tourist travels, Hong Kong used to be place to get the best deal and choice of Chinese paintings, carpets, embroidery, wooden, jade and stone carving.

    Personally, I do not encourage ivory carvings. Though they are beautiful and intricate, the cost of endangering wildlife, it is better to seek other works of art.

    Hong Kong is still a great one-stop place to buy souvenir from all over China due to the sourcing, convenience, market demand and competitive pricing.

    I recommend you bring an existing suit that fits you perfectly and just have them copy it, once you select suit and lining fabric; same with shirts. Enjoy!

    What to buy: silk ties are a good value and french cuff shirts

    What to pay: varies

    MBK: Bangkok's MBK

    by bulldogtwo Written Nov 13, 2008

    The answer to all of your question is Yes. Yes the goods can be expensive but that also depends on what you are looking to buy. Some things are cheaper. VT'rs are usually pretty savvy consumers and if you would've said what you are loking for, good bet that VT'rs can point you in the right direction. Knowing the local markets are always the best bet for deals versus going to the shopping malls in any big city, Bangkok is no different. Central Stores just up the road has more of the "prestigous" market. In the old days it was a cheap store and market and has since grown to one of Bangkok more exclusive stores.
    Good luck

    Red Market: Cheap Tees

    by iam3xxx Written Apr 8, 2006

    Red Market which is situated within walking distance to where I was staying ( the Pousada de Mong Ha Hotel) is a great place to buy branded tees which come from the factory outlets where they are made. Labels include Agnes b and Polo can be found in these factory outlet clothing shops. You just need patience and time to search around. Good Luck!

    What to buy: Womens, mens, children's tees, tops and bottoms. Sports shorts, pants and even pyjamas can be found at the shops.

    What to pay: US$5 about.
