Where and What to Shop in Hong Kong and Macau
by: Melvin Corales – Certified Shopaholic
Traveling in a foreign country is not just about the never ending experience, new culture, exotic food and tourist spots; it is also about splurging a couple of bucks for s-h-o-p-p-i-n-g. Yes, shopping!
Hong Kong is a heaven if shopping is your cup of tea. Did I say Hong Kong was a huge mall? It is considered as one of the best shopping destinations in the world; no wonder malls popped up in every corner of HK, from Mongkok all the way to Causeway Bay. You’ll surely be overwhelmed with what HK can offer.
Sky’s the limit. Shop ‘til you drop. If you have lots of “kaching-kaching”, then you can say those. Unfortunately, that was not the case for us or maybe also for other people who are on budget travel. But I assure you, you can find great deals in HK even when you are on a tight budget.
First thing first: set yourself a limit. You would not want to enjoy HK and shop all you want then go back to your country broke. Sounds horrible? Believe me, it can happen. I have seen a lot of people who splurged on shopping then come home with credit card bills piling up. But don’t freak out because I’m here to give you idea on what to expect when you are in HK.
