On a visit to Hong Kong, shopping is one of the best things to do especially in Kowloon where you will find everything from malls to markets like those mentioned below.
A great place for fashionistas, Ladies’ Market is only around a 5-minute drive from Dorsett Mongkok. This lively market stretches for around one kilometre long and features more than 100 stalls offering all manner of clothing and accessories like watches, handbags, hats and belts. You also get CDs, home furnishings, cosmetics, toys and more and remember to bargain with vendors to get lower prices!
Temple Street Night Market
Another popular place to shop, Temple Street Night Market is not to be missed and can be easily reached via Mongkok-based quarantine hotels in Hong Kong as the property mentioned above. As you explore this lively street bazaar, you will find clothing for men and women, souvenirs, electronics, watches, shoes and jade items to name a few; you will find lots of options to savour local foodie favourites too.
Shopaholics should wander along Nathan Road which begins at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, running along Kowloon’s entire length where you will find plenty of shops, boutiques and malls. Don’t forget the ‘Golden Mile’ locale home to The One, K11 Art Mall and iSQUARE which are popular amongst shoppers. Also of interest is Park Lane Shopper’s Boulevard which has more boutiques with local and international brands.
One of the best malls in Kowloon, Harbour City in the district of Tsim Sha Tsui features five areas with more than 700 stores! The Ocean Terminal is where you can find sports brands such as Adidas and Nike, while at the Ocean Centre, designer brands like DKNY are on offer. The Marco Polo area is home to beauty outlets and the Lane Crawford department store, and the Gateway Arcade section is where to go to buy electronics. There are plenty of restaurants as well to refuel before your next round of shopping!
