…when you’re staying in Tsim Sha Tsui, or commonly called TST. Why did I say TST? Because this is the most favored area of first timers.
First off, Nathan Road. This is one long stretch. You can find Mongkok, and Jordan along the way. Some adventurous ones walk from TST to Mongkok just strolling along Nathan Road. There are night markets in Mongkok and Jordan. But be forewarned. Most stuff you can find cheaper in Greenhills or Divisoria.
If you are looking for Giordano and Bossini, yes they are much cheaper in Hong Kong than in Manila. They are side by side in Peking Road. (Actually, you’d see these two shops more often than you’d expect)
For Lacoste, you can find it in Park Lane. In front of Park Lane is the Miramar shopping mall that has agnes b. (Do we have agnes b. here in Manila?) and Vivienne Westwood shops, both on ground floor, by the way.
Sorry but I can’t remember where we were when I saw Long Champ, but I suspect we were at Sogo (Salisbury area).
If you are looking for something affordable, check H&M. There’s one in front of the Harbour City, a little to the right across the big Gucci store.
And if you plan on going to Disneyland, you are likely to ride the MTR and go down the sunny bay station. Why not skip it first and go straight to next, which is the Tung Chung station where you’d find the Citygate outlet mall. Here, you’d find Mango, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Burberry, RL, Coach and Samsonite. I’m telling this because since it’s an outlet, most are marked down. My only observation: Mango items are priced pretty much the same during sales here in Manila, PLUS our items are much better.
What I forgot to check (and shop for) is makeups and anti wrinkle creams. Even bottles of perfume, I didn’t quite check if they are cheaper in Hong Kong or not.
I wish I could share where to buy toys and children’s wear. Most of the kids’ wear were winter clothes (even in H&M). Some shops still have summer line, but colors or cut of which weren’t cute enough.
Hope this helps
