Must Visit Shopping Malls in Mong Kok – Shopping in Hong Kong's Bustling District

The bustling district of Mong Kok is known for many things but it is most famed for its shopping opportunities. Here is a list of the best shopping malls in the area.

1

Harbour City

Ranking among the largest of Asia's shopping malls, Harbour City is quite hard to miss when you are in the city. The strategic location at the harbour and the close proximity to Star Ferry Terminal makes it easy to access from hotels in the city like Dorsett Mongkok Hong Kong. The massive shopping mall is home to almost seven hundred stores that are spread over a two-million-square-feet area. This includes roughly twenty camera stores, twenty sports/apparel shops, more than one hundred fashion retailers like Calvin Klein and even a Harley Davidson store! Should a person get tired of traversing the large building, Harbour City has over fifty restaurants to provide respite for the weary shopper. Pro tip: grab a map from the counter to navigate the mall without getting lost!

IFC Mall

Present right over the Hong Kong station, this is considered one of the most beautiful malls in the district. IFC Mall has in excess of two hundred shops, a theatre, and a gym among many other offerings. A key highlight of the location is its array of great restaurants that allow you to enjoy a fine gourmet meal as you gaze at the beautiful views of the Victoria Harbour. IFC Mall also boasts a rooftop garden that is open to everyone, making it an ideal location to drop in and catch your breath after a round of intense shopping. The mall has plenty of shops, ranging from international retailers like PUMA to a smorgasbord of local entities.

1881 Heritage

This building was the Hong Kong Marine Police HQ from the 18th century to the 19th century, which explains the name. With a design that remains the same as the Victorian era it was built in, it warrants a visit at least for its marvellous architecture. 1881 Heritage looks out of place in a futuristic city like Hong Kong and there are many historical artefacts in the building that have been well preserved. The mall does not have just retail stores but has plenty of fine dining options if you're in the mood for it.

Langham Place

A pretty huge shopping mall by even Hong Kong's standards, Langham Place has over two hundred stores, most of which are geared towards the youths. However, the mall has so much more to it than its stores. Langham Place has the Digital Sky, a unique feature that makes it one of the biggest tourist attractions in Kowloon. The mall also regularly hosts live performances that entertain shoppers while the unorthodox cork screw architecture tends to draw many tourists who want to experience Hong Kong's amazing architecture up close. The unique design allows a visitor to travel across the many floors without the need to make use of an escalator.
