Here you’ll journey past Shanghainese tailors, sweet-talking restaurant touts, gorgeous gems and jewellery, flashy cameras, international brand name stores and Asian street label boutiques. Or you can take a short walk over to Canton Road where you’ll be confronted with some of the best the world has to offer in luxury designer goods.

Celebrities' Hong Kong moments

Suqin
Hong Kong is a romantic city. I enjoy shopping here — from the great variety of merchandise in the malls, to quirky creations sold in unique neighbourhoods, and even souvenirs from affordable night markets, I love them all. What’s on offer here are more than products, they are the love of beauty and for oneself.
