8 Best Shopping Experiences in Wan Chai

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Wan Chai

Shopping in Wan Chai is different to most other areas of Hong Kong. Obviously, it is a busy and bustling area of downtown Hong Kong so you can safely bet that there are plenty of shopping opportunities available, although the type of items on sale here is a little less mainstream than you will find elsewhere, say in Causeway Bay or Kowloon across the harbour.

Designer homeware, discount toys, and cutting-edge computer gadgetry are just a few of the reasons why locals and visitors travel from all over Hong Kong to come shopping in Wan Chai. Take a look at a complete rundown of the best places to shop in Wan Chai.

    Tai Yuen Street Market

    This packed street market is filled with toy shops selling everything from Barbie dolls to Lego bricks and board games, often sold for cheaper than in department stores.

    There are also a few hawkers selling clothes and souvenirs so it’s great for a browse even if you don’t intend to buy anything. Tai Yuen Street Market runs down the one side of Wan Chai Wet Market, from Queens Road East to Hennessey Road.

    • Opening Hours: Daily from 9am–6pm

    Star Street Precinct

    Star Street and its surrounding lanes are the creative hub of Wan Chai and you'll find fashion brands, such as Japanese label R45, furniture design company OVO Studio and British lifestyle brand Monocle.

    As well as boutique shopping, the whole area is pleasant to walk around, clearly benefiting from the ongoing gentrification of Wan Chai with greenery and benches. This small area of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants was formerly the area around Hong Kong’s first power station, but now you will find exclusive furniture and fashion, new world cuisine and fancy cocktail bars instead.

    • Location: Star Street (turn up the slope off Queen’s Road East)

    Wan Chai Computer Centre

    Wan Chai Computer Centre is the biggest electronics mall in Hong Kong, stocking every conceivable gadget and gizmo, from laptops to micro SD cards to waterproof cameras and everything in between.

    You can pick up some great bargains here and with so many shops it’s worth your time to shop around looking for the best price. Even if the shop owner won’t budge on the price, they will often throw in free extras to get you to hand over your cash. But with narrow walkways and hundreds of fellow bargain hunters, it’s not the most relaxing shopping experience.

    • Opening Hours: Daily from 10am to 9pm
    • Location: 130 Hennessy Rd, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

    Furniture shops on Queen's Road East

    Hong Kong loves to group types of products together and if you walk west from Wan Chai MTR Station, along Queen’s Road East, you'll find a whole host of furniture and homeware shops.

    They are mostly chic boutiques and high-end office furniture shops with products sourced from across the world so don’t expect to find many bargains. But if you’re looking for something stylish to brighten up your home this is one of the best places in Hong Kong. Shop owners are well versed at catering to foreigners and will offer to pack and send your goods to your home address for an additional fee.

    Brim 28

    Brim 28 is a small dining and shopping mall on Harbour Road, linking Wan Chai with Causeway Bay.

    Wan Chai Wet Market

    A browse around Wan Chai Wet Market isn’t everyone’s idea of fun, but some people love to look at the fresh produce, experience the sensory overload that is particular to wet markets and watch the locals go about their business.

    Every conceivable fresh ingredient is for sale, from hanging meats and fish to herbs and spices from China and beyond. Although a tenderloin of beef might be a little awkward to take back to your hotel, Wan Chai Wet Market is a great place to pick up some fresh fruit for a midday snack.
