G.O.D. (Goods of Desire)

G.O.D. (Goods of Desire)

If you are looking for something stylish and uniquely Hong Kong, G.O.D. won't disappoint. Tote bags featuring classified ads in old Chinese newspapers, bedding featuring old matchboxes, and old Hong Kong letterboxes made into magnets are all good ideas for souvenirs. G.O.D. is almost like a museum of old Hong Kong.

From MTR Central Station Exit D2, at Theatre Lane, turn right onto Queen's Road Central and walk about four minutes, then turn left to reach Pottinger Street. Walk up the staircase to reach Hollywood Road. Cross the road and turn right, then continue for two minutes to reach G.O.D.
