Causeway Bay shopping is probably Hong Kong’s most intense shopping experience. Nowhere are more shops and more people squeezed together than the maze of streets in Causeway Bay. Boasting, the city’s biggest department store in SOGO and one of the biggest malls in Times Square, as well as endless avenues of individual boutiques and market stalls, if you can’t find it here you won’t find it anywhere.
Even if you’re not planning to shop till you drop, the crowds, the noise and the neon all make it worth a visit with your camera. Check out our Profile of Causeway Bay for more information on the area, including how to get there, or our Top Five Shopping Areas in Hong Kong for more shopping hotspots.
