Shopping & Custom-Tailoring
Hong Kong and Kowloon are known for their fine shopping and high-quality custom-tailoring. During a visit to Hong Kong, treat yourself to a custom-made dress or suit — we had several made up for us at very reasonable prices.
Fun Street Markets
Have fun shopping and browsing at the popular open-air Street Markets (see list below) — and be prepared to bargain... everything's negotiable!
Stanley Market is our favorite street market — we picked up some great bargains, including Chinese silk and beautiful beaded clutch bags at a fraction of what they cost in the U.S. It's a fun place to shop for gifts and souvenirs for family and friends.
Jade lovers won't want to miss the unique Jade Market — their traditional "green" and not so traditional "brown" jade jewelry make great gifts.
If you're into fashion, don't miss Ladies Market — it's famous for its bargain-priced clothing, bags, accessories... and more!
Be sure to visit Hong Kong's Temple Street Night Market — you can find some great bargains, including gadgets and electronic items. It's a fun place to shop for watches, however be aware of knock-offs — it's hard to tell them apart from the real thing!
The street markets are filled with tourists and locals alike — it's a FUN place for people-watching!
