Hong Kong is also well-known for its great shopping. You will find all brands and companies you can think off here, but I got a secret shopping tip for you! Most tourists don’t even know about this place.
There you can find pretty much everything which is related to electronics…smartphones, PC’s, accessories and many more things and you definitely should check it out. But what secret place is it?!
The place is called Sham Shui Po
How to get there:
Nearest MTR station is like the place itself Sham Shui Po. Once arrived take Exit C towards Dragon Centre and right after you exit the MTR station you will be in middle of shoppers paradise. It is always crowded here. Shops are open every day, except major national holidays like Chinese New Year. But even then, the street shops are open. Most of the shops close around 20:00 to 21:00 o’clock. Definitely not for night shopping as Ladies Market or Temple Street Market but a lot more cheaper.
Like mentioned above here you can find smartphones, tools, measuring devices, toys, watches and accessories. Just check it out. There is a lot to see and a lot of shops look a like but every shop has something which another shop doesn’t have. At least what i was observing. You also can find some clothing here but that’s the minority of the shops. Just check it out for yourself and you won’t regret it. Also most of the people or at least one of the staff speaks some english to talk to.
Small additional advice:
First look around what you would like to buy and try to buy as much as possible at one place, which gives you a good negotiation base.
Normally the prices are pretty much the same in all the shops but keep checking and as mentioned above you also can negotiate
If the price is too good to be true, you better watch out. Especially for smartphones and watches. I saw them selling a “Note 3” but that has nothing to do with the current model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Most of the time they just call it Android phone or something and watch out for copied iPhones. If a iPhone costs only about 1500 HKD (150€) it’s pretty sure a copy. But that doesn’t mean it is bad, it is just not official supported by the manufacturer.
I for myself love shopping here. So let me know what you think about this place…
