In HK, i guess all place they sell genuine products... Are you talking about brand new or second hand photography items?

For brand new, you can just go big shop like fortress or broadway, they are everywhere.

For second hand, there are some shops in TST which are very famous, take a look in Champagne court in TST, which opposite to Maramar tower. There are few shops which sell seond hand photography items including old models too..

Hope it helps

for photography stuffs, go to Sim City at Shantung Street (Mongkok).

check out this website for details:-

Welcome to Sim City

This Festival has becoming too commercialised...已失去原有的意义了。

Hi celinebb,

I'm heading to HK in Nov! It's been 4 years since my last trip to HK and was wondering if you can share, in your opinion, your favorite lifestyle/youth fashion malls?

We also have a preference to stay near near the subway stations. Which station will you recommend for someone who likes shopping and eating? (e.g. TST/Mongkok/Jordan?) Thanks!

Hi Travis,

Hong kong changes a lot these few years and many jewelry shop, luxury brands like LV, BV, Chanel, Dior has opened in most tourist places for mainland traveller. Honestly, many of our friend doesn't like shopping in HK now, the shops are not for us.

I personally like festival walk shopping mall, it is not crowded and people live there probably has good income.

TST station is one of the good place to stay for shop and eat, if you live in Jordan, it will be less expensive I suppose. I perosonally don't like Mongkok, it is so crowded. Actually, I don't know which place you will go and you budget, so TST and mongkok is the central of HK, so it will be convenience(Just TST is expensive).

I just checked, take a look on Empire Hotel in Wan Chai , it is just few more stay from TST. If you are travelling on Hong Kong island, it is more convenice too. Price for Emprice is under $1000HKD

Sorry, missed your post. Have you been to Cheung Chau? Cheung Chau is one of the popular island, and you can have seafood there. (Although i don't think it is really good). There are many Vacation home you can rent, but it is not cheap...

If just for day trip, Lamma Island or Cheung Chau are good place.
any good seafood places to recommend then? or islands that's worth a night stayover? thks!

If you traveller, I think cheung chau is the best to stay overnight, it is a big island and more things to look around. If you never been there, it still worth to go.

For seafood, you can go sai kung or Lei Yue Mun, it is the place which you buy the seafood then find restaurant cook for you. Remember check the price before you go in.
If you don't want to go that far, actually Causeway bay also have some very nice seafood restaurant which are very famous.

Thanks celinebb! Think I'll take your advice and stay on HK Island for convenience traveling to Airport Express and Stanley Market

For a good balance of shopping and eating, which would be the preferred area to stay-in? Central, Wan Chai or Causeway Bay?

Travis,
For my personally experience, I think most important it depends on where you go travel or which place you prefer the most. If you see from the MTR map, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, TST , mongkok, they are just few stations near by. If most places you travel are in HK island, then of course stay in Wan Chai or Central, Causeway Bay is better. For example, Central is a place for dining with nice restaurant or enjoy coffee while mongkok, Causeway Bay are mostly for shopping.

Causeway Bay has mini bus to Stanley Market, it is near timesqure.
If you budget are ok, take a look J plus in Causeway bay, it is around $1500 HKD per night. The hotel is very nice. You can book through agoda.

Hi Putmefirst,

Sham tsui poh is the lowest income district in Hong Kong. Things in Sham tsui poh are cheap...

Does it answered your question?
