Hong Kong Shopping Malls - Pacific Place

Pacific Place
Pacific Place has three phases, but shopping mall is mainly at phase one.

The goods here are of high quality however less expensive than IFC and Landmark. Famous department store Lane Crawford operates here. The whole of the basement are restaurants and supermarket.

Across the street via covered foot bridge is the Admiralty Centre. The goods here are far cheaper than those at the Pacific Place mainly selling fashion and accessories.

Pacific Place is connected to the Supreme Court of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Park via escalators. At the end of the escalators, there are three hotels namely Island Shangrila, Conrad and Marriott.

Hong Kong Shopping Malls - Times Square

Times Square
Among Hong Kong shopping malls, this one is extremely well-planned. If you have a particular product in mind, this could be an ideal place to buy.

At the heart of Causeway Bay shopping area, Times Square has a different theme on each floor, such as children’s goods, audio-visual and telecom products, sports goods, fashion and accessories. The goods here are far more economic than those of IFC, Landmark and Pacific Place. It is my favourite shopping mall.

Inside the mall, there are four levels designated to restaurants. You can spend a day here without getting hungry, nor getting wet on a rainy day.

The boutique hotel Holiday Inn Express is just across the street.

Wanchai Computer Centre – Computer Shopping Mall

Wanchai Computer Centre

There are several computer shopping malls in Hong Kong. One of the malls with the most convenient location and wide range of products is the one at Wanchai.

This is one of my favourite Hong Kong shopping malls. Its computer product range is very comprehensive and pricing is very competitive. This computer mall is always full of people as it is conveniently located next to Wanchai MTR station. To avoid the crowd, you might want go early or late. Shops opening hours varies, but most of them open in mid morning around 10am through 10pm.

Direction: MTR Wanchai station, exit A4, turn left

Shopping Tips: Though my experience shopping at this computer centre is good, and the shops here are generally reliable, but to secure that you are buying original products, please check the originality of the goods and make sure you won't buy any pirate goods.
