Nathan Road Tips (23)

Nathan Road: J-pop

Japanese fashion die-hard fans alert.

The building behind me is situated along Nathan Road and it's 4 or 5 storeys high selling all sorts of japanese fashion stuffs!!

Very cheap! Hai!

Avoid going there on weekends coz i don't think you can move along with the crowds very well. I reckon you would end up see more people than seeing clothes.

Nathan Road: Jewelry Shops

There are tons and tons of jewelry shops that line Nathan Road. Most of them are reputable and have many shops along the same street at different points. They are more expensive than what they would be for the Hong Kong person who lives there an knows private reputable store owners, but as good as it gets for the tourist that isn't all that jewelry saavy.

What to buy All I have to say is that if you are REALLY serious about purchasing jewelry is that you shop the stores. Make certain that you pick out a few things so that you can comparison shop. Then BARGAIN!!! They will bargain with you. In fact, give them a price lower than what you are willing to pay...you never know what they might give you!! And besides that, even if they come back with a higher price, it may be the price you are willing to pay. All reputable dealers will give you a receipt or a bill of sale. It should indicate on it the description of the item and its metal content. Gold and platinum jewelry must also carry the appropriate stamps that indicate its metal content...look for 22K or 24K or 18K or 750 for gold (most gold is 18K or higher in Hong Kong). Look for 900 or 950 for platinum. Silver is marked with 925. Be careful and have fun shopping!!

What to pay Price should be dependent on weight. All dealers should calculate out the price per gram for you. Go from dealer to dealer to see what the going rate is.

Sino Centre: Shops selling Japanese anime, dramas etc.

This is a commercial building with many stores selling a wide selection of japanese animation, dramas and movies. You can even find a lot of original soundtracks (OSTs) here! Some of these OSTs are very hard to find elsewhere and they are not expensive too!

What to pay I spend around $240 in Hongkong currency for 2 OSTs and a set of anime VCDs.

Nathan Road: Night-time can be the best time for shopping!

For a 'guilo' there is something very special, cheeky and even mischievous about shopping in the late evening. It brings about much more excitement!

The market stalls on Nathan Road are open until very late at night, about midnight. It's not really about what they sell, more appropriately, it's what they don't sell! (I'm yet to work that out) But quite seriously, it's just a great atmosphere and it's something the locals enjoy doing. So, when in Hong Kong, do as the... you know the rest :-p

What to buy Electronics, clothes, antiques, local food... and remember, it's OK to haggle a little with the price. If you're not happy with the price, walk on and I'm sure you'll find another stall selling almost exactly the same item/s. Personally, I don't like to haggle and I'm not good at it. I just like to check out all the unusual things for sale (dried snake, for example...)

What to pay How much do you really want the item?

Nathan Road: On Crazy Sale

Wow, "On Crazy Sale"! How can you miss this one? One of Hong Kong's widest streets, Nathan Road was named for Governor Sir Matthew Nathan, the Governor at the time it was constructed. Nathan Road was known "Nathan's Folly" because everyone thought Nathan was crazy for building such a wide street seeming leading nowhere. Today, it is one of the busiest thoroughfares in Hong Kong. Filled with boutiques, jewelry stores, camera stores, hotels and restaurants. The lower portion is known as the Golden Mile because of all the neon signs.

shops in Mong Kok: Buying CD/VCD/DVD

there are quite many shops selling CD/VCD/DVD and most of them are selling the official or original.

beware:
1] don't buy the disc from the street stalls or hawkers, those must be the copied version or called "cinema version". I guess you know what I mean. Even the price is cheap (around HK$20 per one), but the quality is not satisfied.

2] check the region code of DVD. some DVD are internationally playable, but some might be only for specified region.

What to buy DVD:
1] around HK$80-200 for western movie
2] around HK$50-100 for Hong Kong or asian movies
3] around HK$150-250 for classical music or special edition

VCD:
1] around HK$20-50 for most of the movies
2] around HK$150-250 for box-set of Japanese cartoon

CD:
1] around HK$70-100 for Hong Kong and Asian regions
2] around HK$80-150 for western and Japanese

sometimes, the CD and DVD will be attached poster, just ask the shop-keeper. Or some shops selling the poster too, just HK$10-40

What to pay cash in HK currency
credit card: Visa, Master and American Express are mostly accepted, but check whether any service charge

Lots of jewerly, cameras etc.

Nathan Road and Kowloon is famous for hundreds of shops. Jewerly, cameras, CDs, design cloths etc.

What to pay Prices are higher than e.g. Thailand, but some lower than Europe. You will find much better bargain some shopping centre and department store out of city centre.
