About Hong Kong Shopping
In Hong Kong, shopping is not so much a pastime as a way of life. It's rare to find an empty mall, and the lines you see outside designer label stores are made up of customers waiting to get in as management limits the number of people who can come in at any one time! There are bargains to be had in the city's street markets, and some very luxurious retail experiences await in the smarter stores. Small independent stores add to the general wealth of choice – and of course no sales tax is levied in Hong Kong. In general, shops tend to open mid morning and only close late in the evening.
