Shopping in Hong Kong is one of the city's must-dos. There's something for every season and style somewhere in this dense metropolis and with a bit of in-depth knowledge you can track down pretty much any article you'd like to buy. Have a look at what we consider to be the best places to go shopping in Hong Kong, so you can pinpoint that elusive bargain or exclusive must-have item. 

    Designer shops and exclusive labels are relatively easy to locate here and lots of visitors fly in to restock and update their wardrobe, as well as to shop for silk products and Chinese artwork at affordable prices. If you're a short-term visitor, you can save even more money when shopping in Hong Kong's shopping malls because you can receive your tax back if you show your passport.
