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
