From morning until late at night, shopping malls are open and filled with avid shopaholics. Being a popular international port, Hong Kong is always abreast with the ever-changing fashion and trends.
Hong Kong's chief shopping districts are Central, Admiralty, and Causeway Bay on Hong Kong Island, along with Tsim Tsa Tsui and Mong Kok in Kowloon. Shopping hours vary, but most shops are basically open until late at night, seven days a week. Shops are also open on public holidays, except during the Lunar New Year. However, shops in Central close earlier at around 6 pm, but the other main areas stay open till 9:30pm.
There is a myriad of glamorous and glitzy shopping malls in Hong Kong. These malls are certainly more comfortable than roaming around the streets, especially during the hot and humid summers.
Main shopping malls on Hong Kong Island include Landmark in Central, Pacific Place in Admiralty, Times Square in Causeway Bay, IFC Mall and City Plaza in Taikoo Shing.
Shopping markets in Hong Kong are abundant, selling every item imaginable. These markets are cheap and interesting. Even if you do not wish to buy anything, it is fun to just walk through the markets to observe the ways of market dwellers. Ladies' Market (or "Women's Street") is found in Mong Kok and is Kowloon's version of Stanley Market (on HK Island). You can find an amazing array of bargain women's clothing and accessories.
