    This is a really helpful guide for the shopaholics among us! I really like the sound of exploring the markets of Mongkok. So I think that’s where I would start. I don’t do a lot of shopping, but I love taking photos in markets. They are so colourful.

    I have this posh friend who won`t even consider travelling to SE Asia unless it`s directly into a beach resort. But wait until I give an article that is called `shop till you drop in Hong King` and she`ll buy my plane ticket too! haha
    Thanks for doing the hard work for me!

    Koreans are always going to Hong Kong for the shopping. It’s funny.. I’m not a shopping traveler myself, maybe a souvenir here or there, so when someone says they’re going to HK, I ask what they’ll see and inevitably my Korean friends will tell me about where they will shop. -_-

    • 2travellingsisters 2travellingsisters

      Never knew Koreans were crazy about shpping in HK. Always thought Korea was also a shoppers paradise. But then after visiting Hong Kong I’mnot surprised they travel there to shop.

  8. September 8, 2016    

    Oh wow I did not know there were sooo many shopping options in Hong Kong. I have always been heading to BKK for my shopping sprees but looks like I need to try HKG next 🙂 Bookmarked for when I visit.

    A friend of mine came back from Hong Kong a few months ago and mentioned how Hong Kong is great for two things: food and shopping; she wasn’t kidding. I should start saving and bring nothing to Hong Kong to maximize all the stuff I’ll buy to bring back to the States hahaha

    • 2travellingsisters 2travellingsisters
      September 14, 2016    

      Hahah yes, that is a good idea! Shopping and food are something one should not give a miss while in HK.

  11. September 9, 2016    

    I would be hitting up the markets! I found that I bought way more than I anticipated during my time in SEAsia , but I think I might go crazy in Hong Kong! Haha
