Destinations: Hong Kong – Shopping
Pacific Place is a destination mall; bringing together hotels, cinemas, gourmet dining and unprecedented retail. Designer labels and international premium brands rub shoulders with local Asian boutiques of the highest quality.
Many of the business centres in the city are also served by upscale shopping. The IFC Mall, in Central, the business and leisure district, houses some of the biggest names in business, together with retail and leisure, including the Four Seasons Hotel and the iconic department store, Lane Crawford.
Lane Crawford has a remarkable history. It was founded back in 1850, and has over the last 150 years evolved into the finest one-stop-shop for designer fashionistas. Take advantage of the store’s in-house personal stylist and cosmetic concierge for a makeover, making your skin glow and your wardrobe sparkle, all with that legendary Asian customer service.
Village and street markets are an intoxifying introduction to real HK shopping. Despite the tourist crowds, Stanley Market is worth a visit; it’s quaint and quirky stores sell all sorts of local and Asian products, so it’s the place to pick up something authentic, from silk fabric to custom-made jewellery.
