Shopping in Hong Kong is a lifestyle, a passion and an addiction and it's true to say it's Hong Kongers favourite pass time. Evenings are often spent with friends trawling the shops, with a quick refill at a Dai Pai Dong in between, while window shopping seems to be an in-built trait with the locals.
Shops are everywhere, packed into the classic areas like Causeway Bay and the markets in Mongkok and spread out everywhere in between, often not shutting until after 10p.m.
Aspirationally, the locals like to head to the best malls in Hong Kong, and the air con is also a big attraction. Hong Kong has some of the world's swankiest malls, stuffed with international boutiques and shops bearing the good from fashion shows around the world. Above is Times Square, a massive mall in Causeway Bay.
