Hong Kong is all about brands, baby. Prada, Gucci, Manolo you name it, and you'll find it cheaper here than just about anywhere else in the world thanks to the lack of sales tax. Go shopping mid-year or just before Christmas, and the world's cheapest brand-name clothes in the world will be 40-70 percent cheaper, thanks to the generous city-wide sales.
IFC Mall and Pacific Place are two of the best options on Hong Kong Island, while Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui is the best on offer on the other side of the harbour.
If you're looking for bargains then head to Horizon Plaza
in Ap Lei Chau (Lee Nam Road), a 15-minute taxi ride on the other side of Hong Kong Island. This is where all the old-season and sample clothes and shoes are sold. You can get free maps in the lobby that will guide you through the 40-storey building.
