Many visitors come to Hong Kong to go shopping, drawn by the incredible range of goods packed into such a small area. While some things are good value for money – particularly clothes, silk, jewellery, Chinese arts and crafts, and some computer accessories – it’s essential to research online prices for identical goods before buying, and to shop around. The farther you are from touristy Tsim Sha Tsui, the better value shopping becomes, and the less likely that you’ll be ripped off by some scam. Shops open daily; in downtown areas and shopping malls, 10am to 7pm or later is the norm.
