Shopping in Hong Kong

 

Shopping opportunities in Hong Kong

Shopping in Hong Kong is a lifestyle, a passion, and an addiction and it's true to say it's Hong Kongers favorite pastime. Evenings are often spent with friends trawling the shops, with a quick refill at a Dai Pai Dong in between, while window shopping seems to be an innate trait with the locals. Shops are everywhere, packed into the classic areas like Causeway Bay and the markets in Mongkok and spread out everywhere in between, often not shutting until after 10 p.m. Here is some of the commodity prices to expect in this great city,
