Horizon Plaza Factory Outlet Stores offers 27 floors of discount designer fashion from such prestigious names as Armani, Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Lauren, Tod’s, Replay, Paul Smith, Diesel and Lane Crawford. There are local and Chinese brands available too. It is located in the Ap Lei Chau Estate in the southern town of Aberdeen, over 30 minutes away from downtown Hong Kong. Housed in a nondescript office block, you would most probably walk straight past Horizon Plaza Hong Kong it if you didn’t know about the incredible range of outlet stores and high end designer brands inside that is almost unbelievable for die-hard shoppers with a penchant for serious savings.
Discounts vary massively, from as little as 30% to as much as 80%, and with fresh stock added on a daily basis you really can’t tell if you will find the right product in the right size at the right price or not. However, if you are intent on bagging yourself some designer bargains then be sure to search for the ‘Clearance’ rails as these are where the major discounts (60+%) can be found. Occasionally, items with minor defects or stains are on sale at Horizon Plaza – they are clearly labelled – although everything is guaranteed to be genuine.
Owing to the popularity of Horizon Plaza, waiting times for the lifts can be frustratingly long, especially on weekends. Your best bet is to grab a map from the reception, head up to the top most floor and walk your way down to the brands of interest. Definitely try to start early so you can get first choice on the day’s new stock.
To get to Horizon Plaza you can take a taxi for around HK$200 or take bus 590 from Exchange Square Bus Station in Central. Get off at Ap Lei Chau Estate Bus Terminal and take the free Horizon Plaza Shuttle Bus (operates every 5-30 minutes interval), or you can walk in about 10-15 minutes (it is signposted).
