The biggest mall in Mong Kok and a Hong Kong shopping hotspot, Langham Place draws in the punters with its more than 200 shops, most of which tend towards youth fashion. But the mall itself is interesting too. Its Digital Sky and live performances aim to keep shoppers amused, while the building’s unusual corkscrew design allows you to ascend or descend its floors without using an escalator. But if you want to jump ahead of the crowds a bit, there is an 83-metre escalator that will take you up quite a distance.
