Shopping and eating late into the night are key parts of Chinese society that are well catered for in many cities by “Night Markets”. Hong Kong is no exception and you’ll find a great variety of market choices available well into the small hours.
The term Outlet shopping has been around long enough to have been used and misused in a number of ways. The Hong Kong outlets fall into a few different categories, each with their own appeal but catering to different needs. Before setting off on your next outlet shopping expedition make sure you’re clear what you are after.
Florentia Village is the leading international luxury designer outlet in Greater China inspired by classic Italian architecture. They have a branch in Kwai Hing in the New Territories of Hong Kong. Just a short MTR trip from TST.
Horizon Plaza in Ap Lei Chau on the south side of Hong Kong island is one of those “secrets that everybody knows”. It is a great shopping destination for locals and visitors alike, but hardly advertised or fully described. At the same time, every fashionista in HK and every person who loves interior design is very familiar with these building packed full of shops.
Need to get around Hong Kong efficiently? Pay for snacks, drinks and attractions without struggling with unfamiliar banknotes? Want to avoid a pocketful of coins? Then the Hong Kong Octopus Card is the solution you need.
Itinerary are by themes and districts at the moment but I’ll try to estimate on the time spent for those who have limited time to stay. Most districts mentioned here are easily accessed by public transport.
