Purchase! This is the goal of many tourists visiting
Hong Kong, especially the Chinese, and the city does not
disappoint those with this program in mind. Hong Kong is
really shopping friendly and the number of international
brand stores and malls on the streets is impressive. The
variety of products is endless and gathers from the
largest luxury brands in the market to fairs with
counterfeit products produced in China. The space is
valued to the maximum, so instead of the malls being
horizontal, they are vertical - with many floors!
high purchasing power of local residents and tourists
drives commerce and stores considered relatively rare in
large Brazilian cities are on the streets of HK. Brands
like Prada and Chanel are common on the streets and
sometimes even queue at the doors. Popular brands like
H&M and Forever 21 also have their space, as do Asian
and local brands. Cosmetics and beauty stores are around
every corner, to see this type of product, visit Sasa or
Bonjour stores. If you are interested in retro style items, just visit
InternetAges where you can find vintage headbands.
Almost every place seems suitable for shopping,
because the number of stores on the streets is really
great, but some locations stand out. On the island of
Hong Kong, Causeway Bay is a great choice for shopping.
There, the streets have many stores and, in addition,
several malls are installed, among them the giant
Times Square, the Fashion Walk, the
Causeway Bay Plaza and the SOGO store, which is worth as
a mall, such a diversity of products. In the vicinity of
Central Station, there are also many international
stores and shopping centers.
Kowloon, Tsim Sha Tsui and Mong Kok are the best
places to shop. And here, in addition to finding the
well-known stores in the market, you will also see
street markets, which sell absolutely everything! The
popular markets that we find most interesting are
Ladie's Market and Temple
Street Night Market, however, when you go
there, take into account that you will find a lot of
trinkets and that the products are of doubtful origin -
don't be fooled by buying something at a bargain price,
finding who is paying for an original product. To find
cheap products and travel souvenirs, these markets can
be a good choice.
In Tsim Sha Tsui, be sure to walk along
Nathan Road, a store where you will see
everything - from the health food store to the Miu Miu
store. It is an excellent place to shop and has several
shopping centers, some small, others larger, but always
with several floors, like iSquare. When strolling
through these malls, check out the lower and / or upper
floors, because sometimes they have supermarkets and
food courts that sell delicious things.
In Mong Kok, one of the most densely populated places
in the world, you will see fairs, street shops and large
malls. If your business is fairs, go to Ladies Market
and Flower Market, great for those who
like flowers. If you like closed shopping malls, visit
Langham Place, a mall with a very
different architecture and a huge escalator! The Mong
Kok region does have a lot of shops, but the amount of
people on the streets can complicate the act of walking
with ease, which makes the tour not so much fun.
Causeway Bay is the name of a neighborhood and the
subway station installed in one of Hong Kong's busiest
regions. That's where HK boils! This is the place to
shop, to see the city in full swing and to eat in good
restaurants. In this region, there are stores of
renowned brands such as Apple, Prada and Miu Miu,
department stores like SOGO, popular stores like H&M and
Forever 21, as well as shopping malls such as Times
Square and Fashion Walk that have a multitude of brands
and products available to more (or not so) consumers.
For those who want to shop, Causeway Bay is certainly an
unmissable place that offers from low cost options to
the most exclusive stores on the market.
Hong Kong is known for being a shopper's paradise and
if there is one place that symbolizes this facet of the
city, it is Causeway Bay! Be sure to go there, even if
you don't want to buy anything; it is worth the
experience of knowing the atmosphere of the region,
seeing its luminous signs and streets full of people.
Ladie's Market (女人街)
Located in the bustling Mong Kok neighborhood,
Ladie's Market is more than its name suggests. The place
is a street market that sells much more than women's
products. In the market, which stretches for several
meters in the open, you will find stalls selling clothes
for adults and children, accessories - such as glasses
and bags -, shoes, decorative objects, gifts, etc.
Much (or almost everything) of what is sold on the site
is of dubious origin, that is, counterfeit, but this is
a good option for those who like to buy cheap
knickknacks or do not forget travel memories for
Langham Place (朗 豪 坊)
Langham Place, Mong Kong, is a mall that offers good
shopping opportunities. This mall has more than 200
stores and one of its most striking features is its
architecture. From the outside, the place does not
attract much attention, but inside, the architecture is
modern, with many floors arranged in a spiral and a huge
ceiling height! A metal structure with glass and an
83-meter escalator are also part of the mall's
decoration. If you want, you can go to the top floor of
the mall, just to observe the "view", which is super
Langham Place stores include Accessorize, Pandora,
Chanel, Godiva, Coach, H&M, Levi's, etc. The lower floor
is ideal for buying cosmetics and beauty products; on
the upper floors, you will find many local stores, so it
can be a good opportunity to meet new brands.
Mong Kok (旺角)
Mong Kok in Kowloon is one of Hong Kong's most
vibrant and bustling districts! The place has one of the
highest demographic density in the world and really
impresses with the number of people living in buildings
and passing through the streets. It is a place that is
The idea of walking in such a tumultuous space may
not please you, but be aware that Mong Kok is a good
region for shopping and getting to know, in fact, some
of the essence of Hong Kong, which really has this
characteristic of being quite agitated.
The neighborhood has, among its attractions, the
popular street markets, such as Ladie's Market, the
flower and goldfish market. The buzz is just outside the
Mong Kong station, on Sai Yeung Choi, Sneakers Street,
Shantung Street. If you prefer a less hectic place in
the region, but that is cool for shopping, visit Langham
Place, a multi-storey mall with unique architecture.
Mongkok Flower Market (旺角 花 墟)
The Mong Kok Flower Market is a market that brings
together several florists and offers a good walk for
those who like flowers. The variety of plants in the
place is large and as there are many florists, each of
them has a focus, some specialize in arrangements with
roses, others specialize in orchids, for example.
Unfortunately, as you cannot bring plants to Brazil, the
place ends up being just an attraction for
contemplation, but it is still interesting for those who
like nature and get to know new species of plants.
Nathan road is one of the most important routes in
Kowloon and passes through the areas of Tsim Sha Tsui
and Mong Kong. The avenue is not only an important means
of access to the region, but also a hub for local
commerce. Along its extension, stores, restaurants,
shopping centers and small shopping centers are
installed, in addition to hotels and residential
buildings. It is around 3.5 km long and is always full
of tourists passing by, especially in the Tsim Sha Tsui
area, which is a great tour option for travelers.
Temple Street Night Market
Super famous Kowloon market, Temple Street Night
Market is a traditional Chinese market that sells a
little bit of everything. In it you will find bags,
travel souvenirs, clothes, caps, watches, glasses, shoes
and various Asian inventions. It is a popular place,
with shops made in stalls open in the middle of the
street, so be aware of the fact that much of what is
sold in the stalls is counterfeit. Still, it is a good
alternative for those looking for cheap products and,
mainly, for souvenirs of trips with a good price.
Another option is to go to the place to eat Chinese food
at one of the nearby restaurants, which also offer meals
at a good cost.
Street markets are a Hong Kong tradition and this is
the only one that remains open overnight.
Times Square (時代 廣場)
Times Square is the name of one of the main
commercial centers in Hong Kong. It is located in
Causeway Bay, an excellent area for shopping, and brings
together major brands of today. Between the lower and
upper floors are more than 15 floors occupied by shops,
restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, cinema,
etc. On site, you will find a little bit of everything,
from the most popular stores, such as H&M and TopShop,
to Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace, Gucci, Chanel, Fendi,
If you plan to visit a specific store, we suggest
looking at the entrance of the mall on which floor it is
located, because, as there are many floors, you can end
up running a lot until you find the location you want.
Yuen Po Street Bird Garden (園圃 街 雀鳥 花園)
You may already know that Hong Kong has many street
markets. Some of them are somewhat exotic, and this is
one of the different markets to visit, which specializes
in the sale of birds.
The market is not large, but it brings together several
small shops that sell small birds, as well as all kinds
of objects that involve the care of animals, including
It is another one of the walks for contemplation and
we suggest combining it with the Flower Market, which is
practically next door.
