1. Causeway Bay
Ah, the mecca of the deal on Hong Kong Island. Treasures await to be discovered here. Whatever your budget, Causeway Bay is a location to suits all tastes and styles. At the core of Causeway Bay, you are going to find medium and high-end merchandise. The recommended place to start is Windsor Plaza on Great George Street or Times Square in the west (it has its own Causeway Bay MTR exit).
Other places like SOGO, Caroline Centre, World Trade Centre, Lee Gardens, Fashion Island, and Island Beverly are highly trafficked shopping malls where clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, toys, stationery, and other fun things can be found. Surrounding these towers of deals are two shopping markets: Jardine’s Crescent and Jardine’s Bazaar.
To get to Causeway Bay: Use the MTR Island Line to go to either Tin Hau or Causeway Bay stations. From there, you can basically choose any exit and come up somewhere with shopping. Tin Hau also leads to Victoria Park and the Tin Hau temple.
