What to Buy l Where to Shop
Where to Shop

Hong Kong's chief shopping districts are Central, Admiralty, and Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island, along with Tsim Tsa Tsui and Mong Kok in Kowloon. Shopping hours vary, but most shops are basically open until late at night, seven days a week. Shops are also open on public holidays, except during the Lunar New Year. However, shops in Central close earlier at around 6 p.m., but the other main areas stay open till 9:30 p.m.


There is a myriad of glamorous and glitzy shopping malls in Hong Kong. These malls are certainly more comfortable than roaming around the streets, especially during the hot and humid summers.

Main shopping malls on Hong Kong Island include Landmark in Central, Pacific Place in Admiralty, Times Square in Causeway Bay, and City Plaza in Taikoo Shing. Kowloon also has its share of malls, which includes the linked Ocean Terminal and Harbour Centre complexes.


Shopping markets in Hong Kong are abundant, selling every item imaginable. These markets are cheap and interesting. Even if you do not wish to buy anything, it would be fun to just walk through the markets to observe the ways of market dwellers.

"Cat Street" off Hollywood Road in Central is a flea market offering inexpensive trinkets and bric-a-brac. The neighboring area is famous for fine arts and antiques. Stanley Market, on the south side of the island, is famous for sports and casual wear, linen, tableware, silk, and leather garments. The markets are open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Hong Kong's most popular night market is Temple Street, which runs from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei in Kowloon. Cheap clothing, watches, pens, sunglasses, CDs, electronic gadgets, and luggage abound in its colorfully lit stalls. The market opens from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Tung Choi Street is a bustling street market in Mong Kok. It is less tourist oriented than Temple Street, and specializes in local women's fashions, jewelry, and accessories. The market is open from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Jade Market, located under the fly-over near Kansau Street in Yau Ma Tei, is famous for its unique jewelry. It opens daily from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
