Computer and accessories:

  • Golden Shopping Arcade next to  ShamShuiPo MTR
    It's the oldest computer arcade in HK and so it make me feel it's more authentic.  You won't want to miss Ap Liu Street nearby when you are there.  It's more like a market which is full of cheap gadgets, electronic components and second hand stuff for the gadget fans or DIY people. 

    Pirated CDs are sold here.  You may identify them when the shop displays empty CD packets only.  When you place an order, the CDs are 'freshly made'.  So, watch out if you don't want to support these people.

    ShamShuiPo is quite an old residential area.  It's safe at day time but at night time you may see 'Red Light Zone' in some parts of this area. 
  • Wan Chai Computer City (next to Wan Chai MTR)
    A comparatively new arcade in a residential/commercial area.
  • 298 Mall (located at no. 298 Hennessey Road)
    It's in walking distance from Wan Chai MTR.  Similar age as the Wan Chai Computer City.
  • Windsor House in Causeway Bay (near Victoria Park)
    You can find three-storey computer shops in this shopping arcade plus commerical building. HMV, fast food, bookshop, Toysrus, supermarket and many other shops are all in the same building so the whole family can find something to do while you are browsing the computer shops.
