Many shops along Queens Road such as H&M

The Galleria

  • Marco Jewellery (Maria's long standing jeweller)  Shop 220-1 2F, The Galleria, 9 Queens Road, Central. email: marco@marcojewelry.com.hk  Very reliable and beautiful quality at great prices compared to Australia.

IFC - shopping Complex 

A very grand and spacious shopping centre similar to Harbour city.


"The Lanes"- Li Yuen Street - markets with the usual things.


Causeway Bay

MTR causeway Bay


Forever 21

Exit F
American branded clothing for mainly women and men.  6 levels of cheap, western clothing.  Check out their website. www.forever21.com

  

Update 2012 Jardine's Crescent Exit F Causeway Bay MTR. 

No name clothes, accessories etc.  Great authentic markets as you turn left out of the main entrance of Forever 21.  Lots of cheap clothes, underwear etc. Fixed price, no tourists here but we felt very comfortable. We walked around the whole block of Forever 21 including these markets.

Sogo Department Store

Authentic clothing and accessories including Mac makeup,Roxy, Quiksilver, Desigual, Guess, Lulu Lemon



Fashion Walk  Paterson St/Cleveland St/Kingston St/Gloucester Rd


Wan Chai

A very old, historic area up high.

Wan Chai

Spring Garden Lane (off Queens Road East) 

Clothing exporters at very cheap prices. Also has wet and dry markets for a touristy experience.

Hopewell Building

 Great Dim Sum 

Ap Lei Chau

Horizon Plaza

Horizon Plaza Outlets 

Huge 28 floor outlet building. Contains large stores such as Lane Crawford, Joyce who stock famous brands from last season, over runs etc at discounted prices. Still expensive, but when some items had an original price of $1000, with 70-90% off, they are a steal.  Apparently make sure you start at the top and work down as the lifts are a nightmare.

Stanley Village Markets

 Take a spectacular bus ride around the twisting roads to the coast. Market stalls that are a little more glamorous than the others and a little more expensive but offering different things too.
