when you are in hongkong, where do you shop? are there any shopping goldmines aside from the usual tourist destinations? Do you have any tips on haggling with the locals? thanks.

the big malls in hongkong can also be good for cheap finds.
its just a matter of looking and timing ur visit when they are on sale.
sogo and the stores in world trade, ocean park and those in pacific place
are a haven for alot of things.

if u're into gadgets and technology, i think ur best best
will be tsim sha tsui. ikea for home and office needs.
for the kids, of course there's toys are us.
the possibilities are still endless.

it depends on wat ur looking for.. if branded stuff, obviously malls.. langham place in mongkok, harbour city in tsim sha tsui or pacific place in admiralty i think.. ofcrse u can also shop at causeway bay..

for tiangge type shopping try ladies market in mongkok/ yau ma tei or flower road in mongkok/prince edward..

for outlets, stanley market i think has the best finds..

shopping festival this june 24-august 31 2006..

I miss HK!

just to add my two cents' worth:

1) giordano, esprit, marks & spencer and other branded shops are dime a dozen. time your shopping right and prices become ridiculously low. they also have "sale" days, mostly on weekends and then watch as their prices hit rock bottom.

2) if you have the time and the energy, go to sham shui po, yau ma tei and the other kowloon areas. if you're into tiangge type of things, then this is heaven for you.

3) season ending sales are to-die-for. towards the end of summer, most shops drop the price of their summer wear. it seems they would rather sell at lower than cost and clear out their warehouse than to keep their items for the next summer.

I miss HK! I hope to go there december or january. when it's freezing cold..

It's better shopping in the Philippines rather than in Hong Kong, at least here, we can haggle all we want, there, they let the Filipinos out of their stores when they sense you're haggling too much....

yes, i agree. for branded items, HK is still tops for me. but if im looking for things i can sell back here in manila, i would rather go to guangzhou.

as i heard one caucasian guy say in guangzhou, "it's not how much you can you buy.. it's how much you can carry!"

Hi Sir Kerrmit,

Just wondering, after your shopping in Hongkong, what happens if the customs slap high taxes upon your arrival at the airport?
