Are you a shopaholic ready to run the marathon from shop to shop trying on all the clothes on the shelves? Well Causeway Bay is the Olympic games of the world of shopping; the shopping Vatican of the East. While there are hundreds of buildings in this highly populated area across Hong Kong Island spreading through parts of Wan Chai and Eastern districts, the Causeway Bay is primarily known for its shopping district that only rivals the 5th Avenue in New York City.
With shops selling goods ranging from mid to high prices the street at night is lights galore with hundreds of flickering neon lights with unabashed advertising all along the street. The central shopping district includes the 13 story Japanese department store Sogo, the indoor shopping complex Times Square as well as a number of boutique stores and smaller shopping malls such as Lee gardens, Fashion Walk, Windsor house, Fashion Island, Hang Lung Centre as well as more youth fashion boutiques within the maze that forms the Island Beverly Centre. For a bit of bargaining step over to Jardine’s Crescent or commonly known as Jardine’s Bazaar for products ranging from clothes to shoes, skin products, electronics, home appliances and much more.
After an endless day and night (most stores are open way past midnight) of shopping, rest your feet at one of the many restaurants or hotels at Causeway Bay. Notes dishes at restaurants are the Cantonese desserts and drinks at Hui Liu Shan, milk custard desserts at Yee Shun Milk Company, beef and pork jerky at Bee Cheng Hiang within walking distance of the Causeway bay but not to fear, there are dozens upon dozens of eateries and restaurants with a variety of dishes to satisfy your taste buds. Come at noon to hear the fames ‘Noonday Gun’ shot daily at the Causeway Bay by Victoria Harbor. Fired by Jardine Matheson, it has served as a time signal for generations and is still continued as a custom. Being one of the busiest places in the city, forever thronged with people, one can truly feel the pulse of the city at the Causeway Bay.
