A Day for Exploring

Morning

Start off with a brisk stroll through Hong Kong Park, a green haven surrounded on all sides by thrusting towers of glass and concrete. Chances are you’ll see several caparisoned couples awaiting their turn to be married at the Cotton Tree Drive Registry Office. Take time for a look through the Edward Youde Aviary, a spectacular creation of mesh arches replete with Southeast Asian birdlife.

Make your way down past Citibank’s imposing black towers to Pacific Place for a coffee and some window shopping. Keep heading towards the harbour and you’ll see to your right the elegant sweep of the Convention and Exhibition Centre . Enjoy the harbour panorama through soaring glass walls.

Afternoon

Return to Wan Chai for lunch. Lockhart Road is as good a place as any. The sleazy joints are still slumbering, and there is decent pub grub, Thai, Mexican and Chinese food on offer (see Places to Eat and Drink).

Hennessy Road is the place to jump on a tram to Causeway Bay, due east of Wan Chai, or you may prefer to go one stop on the MTR. If you want to go shopping, take the Times Square exit, and start exploring from there. Then leave the crush and chaos behind with a leisurely afternoon stroll through Victoria Park, and perhaps a cocktail in Totts, the eyrie atop the Excelsior hotel.

Places to Shop

  1. Page One

    The best bookshop in Hong Kong, not least because the books are all stacked facing outwards. Huge range of fiction and non-fiction at reasonable prices.

    • B1 Times Square, 1 Matheson St, Causeway Bay

    Page One
  2. Jusco

    One of Japan’s biggest department store chains. Lower rents to the east of the island translate into cheaper fashion, food and household goods.

    • Kornhill Plaza, 2 Kornhill Rd, Quarry Bay

  3. Sogo

    With a fine range of mostly Japanese goods, Sogo is very popular among locals, though not up to Seibu’s standards in the hipness stakes.

    • 555 Hennessy Rd, Causeway Bay

  4. Island Beverley

    An arcane arcade stuffed with tiny boutiques featuring the creations of talented young local designers.

    • 1 Great George St, Causeway Bay

  5. Fashion Walk

    Lots more interesting boutiques here. The vibe is similar to the Island Beverley. Good place to find bargain cosmetics. Also, check out D-Mop.

    • Paterson St, Causeway Bay

  6. J-01

    This store is cool bordering on crazy. The highlight of the hip and happening design collections is the “Splatter Collection” by Japanese artist Dehara Yukinori. It’s hard to say if he’s trying to be comical or is seriously deranged. Either way, don’t miss his lurid, twisted figurines such as Killed Person and Brainman.

    • 57 Paterson St, Causeway Bay

  7. Spring Garden Lane

    Head to this fun market for export-quality clothing at rock-bottom prices.

    • Spring Garden Lane, Wanchai

  8. Marathon Sports

    Acres of trainers and sporty stuff.

    • Shop 616, 6/F Times Square, 1 Matheson St, Causeway Bay

  9. Fortress

    This is the best place to buy the latest electronics, which are sold at reasonable prices and with reliable guarantees.

    • 7F & 8/F Times Square, 1 Matheson St, Causeway Bay

  10. Lee Gardens

    Prada, Paul Smith, Versace, Christian Dior and Cartier for the well-heeled.

    • 33 Hysan Ave, Causeway Bay
