Places to shop in Wan Chai
Whilst Wan Chai might not provide the giant shopping complexes and designer brands that Causeway Bay has to offer, but some of the best shopping destinations in Hong Kong are actually the city’s independent boutiques and little-known designers. Uber Tunique is one of the best boutiques in the Wan Chai area, and offers a huge range of designer jewellery, bags and other accessories, all with a French inspiration. Perfect for small gifts for female friends or family – or for a personal treat – Uber Tunique is a must-visit for any accessory lover during a stay in Wan Chai.
Wan Chai Street Market (Toy Street):
Known by the locals as ‘Toy Street’, the Wan Chai Street Market is a local favourite, and is known as one of the best shopping areas near Wan Chai. Here, visitors can discover a huge array of clothing, accessories and more – so whether you’re looking for savoury snacks, a new bag or a bouquet of flowers, you’ll probably find it at the market.
In Hong Kong, some of the more traditional markets have evolved to offer a more upmarket service to its visitors. Stanley Market is one of these classier markets, offering slightly more expensive goods with a better reputation for quality. For a special gift or a souvenir, Stanley Market is one of the best shopping areas near Wan Chai. Although the market does not accept bargaining and negotiating as much as other local markets, you are still likely to find what you’re looking for at a more reasonable price than a contemporary shopping mall.
