Renowned as one of the most Instagrammable spots of Hong Kong, this golden shopping mall attracts more than just photographers. China Hong Kong City is located next to Harbour City, making Canton Road one of the busiest shopping streets in the area. There is a mixture of outlet stores, art and craft shops, as well as tailors, so you may need more than one day to sift through all of the good bargains. Make sure to come for the spectacular view of the harbour as well as your shopping spree!

Another place for trend shoppers that falls under most people’s radars is the Kwun Tong Factory Outlet Stores. The reason for that is because it’s not one particular mall, but a whole street! Once you walk out from Kwun Tong MTR station and find Hoi Yuen Road, you’ll come across a wide variety of factory outlets, including Adidas and New Balance. This shopping neighbourhood is catered more towards local Hongkongers, but we wouldn’t write it off; it offers some of Hong Kong’s best footwear bargains (yes, even better than Shoe Street in Mong Kok).
