In the meantime, scour the mall for top deals – for the luxury lovers, there is Ferragamo, DVF and Burberry; for the bag collectors check out Michael Kors, Coach and Kate Spade; and for the outdoor enthusiasts, there’s Nike, Columbia and so much more.

Most neighbourhoods in Hong Kong have their indispensable, treasured local wet markets. Tung Chung is no different but Fu Tung Plaza may just do it better than the rest. The wet market here was newly renovated and reopened in 2018, serving everything from cha chaan teng classics and succulent Taiwanese beef noodles to Korean bento boxes and even Asian-style Mexican tacos. Just five minutes away from MTR Exit A or D, why not do a round of grocery shopping here too? You’ll find produce from local organic farms such as genuine free-run eggs, hydroponic veggies and a great selection of fresh-cut flowers.
