Shopping Galore In Hong Kong

Feb 10, 2014
Jump

Hong Kong is famous for duty-free goods, with visitors spending up to 60 percent of their money on shopping. Probably no one has ever left empty-handed, but if time is short there are many malls selling international designer clothing and accessories, electronics, jewelry, antiques, home décor and more. These include gigantic Harbour City, with more than 450 outlets (cruise ships dock alongside it for a reason), and Central’s classy ifc mall.

For Chinese souvenirs and crafts ranging from artwork and porcelain to jade and Chinese-style jackets, good hunting grounds are the upscale Chinese Arts & Crafts stores; chic Shanghai Tang; the more pedestrian Yue Hwa Chinese Products department store; and Hong Kong markets including Stanley Market on Hong Kong Island’s south side, narrow Li Yuen Street East and West in Central and Temple Street Night Market in Kowloon.

Hollywood Road has long been the place to go for antiques, but Horizon Plaza, a huge warehouse in Aberdeen, has more than a dozen antiques shops, while both Christie’s and Sotheby’s hold antique and art auctions in Hong Kong.

In recent years, Hong Kong has also established itself as Asia’s foremost market for Chinese and international art. In addition to annual exhibitions like Asia International Arts & Antiques Fair in spring and Fine Art Asia in autumn, many internationally renowned galleries have set up shop. The greatest concentration is in Central’s historic Pedder Building, where Ben Brown Fine Arts, Gagosian Gallery, Hanart TZ Gallery, Pearl Lam Galleries and Simon Lee Gallery have all found new homes.
