Hong Kong for shoppers
Hong Kong is a shopping paradise. It’s said that if you can’t get a particular item you want in Hong Kong, the thing probably doesn’t exist. And if you do get it in Hong Kong, it’s probably cheaper than in most other places – all thanks to its free port status and absence of tariffs, customs duties and sales tax.
Hong Kong’s shopping is given an added fillip during the Hong Kong Shopping Festival, which is on from June 1 to August 31 this year.
There are even more discounts than usual during the festival, which is based in the city’s many swanky malls. – TAN HOO CHWOON
