Times Square, Hong Kong

An equally electrifying but very different version of the New York City original, Times Square in Hong Kong has to be your first port of call when visiting Causeway Bay. Here you’ll find the biggest shopping mall on Hong Kong Island, home to more than 230 stores spread across 16 floors. The mall is open daily from 10am to 10pm and plays hosts to several Western brands both high street and high-end including the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Marks & Spencer, Gucci and Nike. We suggest dedicating an entire day to this impressive retail complex, starting early and finishing late to get the most out of your retail needs. Desperate to give your arms a break from lugging around several bags? Take the weight off and see the latest blockbuster at the mall’s cinema. Worked up an appetite from all the retail excitement? The restaurant options here are out of this world whether you’re in the mood for something quick and light or a sit-down gourmet affair. Oh, and what’s Time Square without the neon lights and the huge external video screen? The New Year’s celebrations take place on the piazza, making Hong Kong a must-visit in December for a whole host of unforgettable memories.

Address: 1 Matheson Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

 

SOGO Hong Kong

Just around the corner from Times Square, SOGO is known as one of the largest shopping landmarks for both Hong Kong locals and tourists alike. Said to be characterised by the “one-stop shop”, “Japanese style” and “customer oriented” concepts, this expansive 19-floor department store is an essential excursion while in Causeway Bay. Specialising in Japanese brands, you’re guaranteed to pick up exclusive fashionable items that put you way ahead of the curve when you return home. But, if you’re a creature of habit never fear as there are a plethora of international styles on offer including Prada, DKNY and Polo Ralph Lauren. Jewellery and accessories are the main event here so you’re guaranteed to be spoilt for choice when it comes to all things bling due to the selection of fine jewellers and ring designers. On the hunt for an unbelievable bargain? Head to the ninth floor Event Hall where sales are held daily, perfect for saving a few dollars while still picking up fabulous items. SOGO stocks everything you could imagine including the likes of home wear, health and beauty products, kids’ toys and clothes and electronics. The food fairs are also a popular hit at SOGO, giving you a great chance to sample some local snacks, fantastic for taking a break and re-energising in between stores.

A distinctive space that needs no introduction, Fashion Walk is a strip of boutique stores that showcase the best and brightest of Hong Kong’s up-and-coming fashion designers.

Hysan Place

A downscaled but equally stylish version of Hong Kong’s Times Square, Hysan Place is the ideal venue if you’re on the hunt for fashion variety. 120 boutique stores are set across 17 floors and visitors will discover a plethora of mid-to high end brands from the Western world. Hysan Place is brilliant for picking up items that you normally wouldn’t find at home but the shopping complex prides itself in offering an all-round experience. The high-ceiling open shop fronts bring a whole new meaning to window shopping while the chic atrium beaming with natural sunlight is utterly picturesque. Hysan Place even has its own rooftop Sky Garden, abundant with lush greenery and stunning views that are just as gorgeous as your new purchases. As well as the likes of Gap, French Connection, Superdry and North Face, this lifestyle shopping mall offers a range of cafés and patisseries so you can snack in style. Haysan Place is open daily from 10am to 10pm Sunday to Thursday and 10am to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Jardine’s Crescent Street Market

Whip out your haggling skills and get ready to bargain at the bustling street market located on Jardine’s Crescent. This exciting outdoor complex is Hong Kong shopping at its finest – fast-paced, cheap and trendy. It also makes a refreshing change from the high-end malls in the Causeway Bay area as just walking through the street is an experience in itself. Jardine’s Crescent is where you’ll find a variety of inexpensive item’s such as shirts, shoes and bags but lovers of labels beware as there are several fake branded items floating around so inspect the quality thoroughly before making your purchase. Although haggling is the norm along the street, it’s easier to persuade the vendors to decrease their prices if you’re buying more than one item. Oh, and remember, don’t bargain too low in order to not offend the vendors. Once you’re laden with bags of your new fashion finds, head to the fresh food market at the bottom of the alley for some authentic Asian delights.

Address: Jardine’s Crescent, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
