Between luxury designer brands in glamorous malls and secret shops tucked away in commercial buildings, there's not much you can't find when shopping in Hong Kong. And while we love supporting local businesses and independent boutiques, there's just something about shopping malls that we love – whether it's their convenient locations, the variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment like cinemas and ice rinks, or just the fact that they're a great place to escape the heat. Here are some of the best ones we recommend visiting.

Sogo is everyone’s favourite meeting point in Causeway Bay (after the giant TV at Time Square). It's known for its mix of luxury brands like Prada and Tiffany’s and affordable offerings that deal in things like luggage and home appliances. But the main draw that keeps locals and tourists coming is the countless beauty brand counters and the Sogo Freshmart that specialises in imported Japanese groceries and confectioneries.

  • Shopping
  • Whampoa

A shopping mall in the shape of a cruise ship. Definitely not the usual then. The area was a former dockyard and the luxury cruise ship is supposedly representative of its former landscape. While the exterior is a little quirky, the inside is a little less exciting with standard shops and unfortunately, nothing nautical-themed. But at least it makes for a cool pic before spending some moolah.  

New Territories

  • Things to do
  • Kowloon Tong

Just next door to City University, Festival Walk is a convenient store to browse through whether you live in the area or are going to study. Relax at the various mall cafes or shop your day away with a number of stores and famous fashion brands that would keep any fashionista happy.
