One of Hong Kong's swankiest malls, Pacific Place is palatial, and more reminiscent of a hotel than a shopping mall. Set over three levels, the top floors feature swank boutiques and designer shops, including a branch of local department store Lane Crawford, while the lower levels feature more ordinary shops. The mall is connected to the relaxing Hong Kong Park, and boasts three of Hong Kong's most upmarket hotels, as well as a cinema and a number of restaurants. 88 Queensway, Admiralty.
