Shopping in Causeway Bay is undeniably one of the highlights of a trip to Hong Kong. It’s common to see happy but exhausted visitors trundling back to their hotel laden with shopping bags after a fruitful day’s shopping. This area is busy and bustling with shoppers from mid-morning right into the early hours of the next day.
Actually, some flagship stores from international fashion brands stay open until midnight to catch the late night shoppers who are burning the candle at both ends. On top of all the standalone flagship stores there is also a whole host of shopping malls in Causeway Bay. Some are small bespoke arcades, while other are huge complexes containing not just shops but all manner of leisure activities, restaurants and facilities.
As the biggest shopping mall on Hong Kong Island, it stands to reason that Times Square stocks pretty much everything all under one roof. There are more than 230 shops, along with a movie theatre and a varied selection of restaurants from western and Japanese fast food to more high-end eateries. A total of 16 floors of shops selling everything from shoes to jewellery, electronics to beauty products ensure Times Square is the place to come for practically all goods. There’s a heavy offering of street-sportswear from G-Star and North Face, alongside a vast array designer labels such as Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood. Read More...
