Shop to Your Heart's Content

Enjoy unparalleled service and shop with the reassurance that can

only be provided by Hong Kong's Quality Tourism Services (QTS)

Scheme. This scheme certifies shops and restaurants that pass a

stringent assessment, ensuring they provide genuine products and

the highest level of service. And the prices here will astonish even

the most seasoned shopper; Hong Kong is one of the few places

in the world where there is no sales tax or import duty (except on

tobacco, liquor and oil products). Add to this a huge range of quality

goods on offer and you have very happy shoppers.

is second to none. They create form-fitting

masterpieces in a short amount of time.

They carry the finest fabric and can make

almost anything you can think of : shirts,

suits, skirts: traditional Chinese cheongsams,

evening gowns, even handbags and shoes.

Many of the world's celebrities come here

to enhance their wardrobes.

Open-Air Markets

Hong Kong's street markets are always full

of excitement and colour. The market stalls

are where Hong Kong's dedicated shoppers

hone their bargaining skills. Pick up a bargain

or just wander among the fascinating range

of wares. There are many famous markets

in Hong Kong. You can shop around in the

flower market, ladies' market and goldfish

market in Mong Kok, or the Jade Market

and Temple Street Night Market in Yau

Ma Tei, or walk through the historic fishing

lanes with vendors selling Chinese artwork,

silk collectibles and curios in Stanley.

There Is No Escaping

the Shopping

Visitors can find a huge selection of shops

throughout Hong Kong, including at least

one must-visit mega mall in all the popular

districts. These gleaming state-of-theart

emporiums are all within easy reach in

Central, Admiralty, Causeway Bay, Tai Koo,

Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon Bay and Kowloon

Tong. For last-minute shopping, malls can

be found at Tsing Yi, last stop on the Airport

Express Line before the airport, the Terminal

Two SkyPlaza and Terminal One SkyMart.

The compact nature of Hong Kong allows

shoppers the convenience of being able to

hop from one shopping mall to the next in

no time at all.
