A Quick Tour Of Hong Kong


City GuidesCollaborations
My Top Ten places in Hong Kong.
I was recently asked to share my favourite spots in Hong Kong by SK-II. After some thought (as I love Hong Kong and many nameless places that friends have taken me to) I came up with these ten places. Although there are some obvious places missing as I’m assuming that you’re already in love with Lane Crawford, Harvey Nicks and Shanghai Tang.

Joyce

Joyce is one of my favourite boutiques in the world, let along Hong Kong. The staff are super friendly and the buy is so fresh and contemporary. They also have really great sales. Check out their new shoe and bag department it’s stunning.

Shop Wellington Street, 26, Hong Kong

Milan Station

Milan Station is my guilty pleasure, this is the bag reseller in Hong Kong I believe you can trust, it’s publicly listed and assured by the government, also everything I have ever bought there I have had authenticated by the relating brand and it has always been real. Their prices do seem to increase for new bags, so aim for the lightly used pieces to get a bargain.

Tai Hing

Go for a early evening stroll in Causeway bay, stop for roast pork and duck at the little shop next to the Milan Station, the Barley water is yummy. Pudding isn’t really a thing over there unless you want to queue for an hour so make sure to grab a yummy fresh fruit cup on one of the corners instead.

Shop Queensway, 88, Hong Kong

Chinese Arts and Crafts

This used to be a chain but now I think the best store is in Queensway.  You can buy everything here from beautiful cashmere blankets, to fabric, to jewellery. They have a great loyalty system that gets you a discount so make sure to join up. Stock tends to change a lot so if you like something a lot buy two because it might not be there your next trip (I speak from sad experience).
Do 愛丁堡廣場, 9號1樓, Hong Kong

Star Ferry

Nothing feels more Hong Kong, or more endlessly absorbing then taking the Star Ferry across the Harbour. Buy egg tarts at the station to munch on during the trip.  Try and take a trip in the day and the night, both are equally beautiful in terms of views of the city from the water.

    Great tips Peony. I used to travel to HK a lot on business & have also been as a tourist, so this brings back happy memories.
