Run by the Crossroads Foundation charity, this multifaceted venue is one of a kind in Hong Kong. Their Global Handicrafts marketplace is a trove of artisanal fair trade products from around the world, and with a range that includes Chilean clay ocarinas, wood carvings from Bethlehem and Ethiopian coffee beans, eclectic is an understatement. Enjoy a relaxing drink at the Silk Road Cafe, which serves a range of hot and cold fair trade beverages and snacks — try the masala chai.
