Shopping in Hong Kong at markets & huge shopping malls

Shopping in Hong Kong can be generally divided  into two types.

 

First, there are outdoor markets where a variety of goods can be found. For instance, the Ladies' Market (known as "Lui Yan Kai" in Cantonese) offers mostly  women's clothing. On the other hand, you will find jade on sale at the Jade Market in Yau Ma Tei and a bustling market for birds at Yuen Po Street's Bird Market.

 

In the evenings, head to the night market at Temple Street. Although the market starts in the late afternoon, it only gets busy at night. Temple Street is also known as Men's Street. Hence, this is the place to bargain for jeans, t-shirts,  and accessories.

 

The other type of shopping would be at the huge and sprawling shopping malls which Hong Kong is famous for. An example of a famous mall would be Times Square. At the malls, you will find not only international brands but also Hong Kong brands like Giordano which offers comfortable casual wear. 

 

Bargaining is possible at the markets but do not expect them to give you huge discounts unlike in mainland China. In the malls, prices are usually fixed and bargaining is not possible.
