8 Best Shopping Experiences in Wan Chai – for the shoppers out there

The shopping experience in Wan Chai is different from your usual Hong Kong Shopping experience. The streets are alive with crowds and plenty of shops. Still, these aren't your normal items on sale. Here are a few places you'll find when shopping in Wan Chai.


Furniture shops

Perhaps you are on the lookout for some furniture for your home or maybe your new company building? Take the MTR and once you arrive, go west towards Queen's Road East and there you'll find a collection of furniture shops to inspect. Since the dealers here perform transactions with foreigners often, they know exactly how it's done and will offer to pack and send your purchases back home for an additional price.


Star Street precinct

This is the place where Wan Chai gets creative! For the fashion brand you've been searching for, such as furniture design company OVO Studio, Japanese label R4 and British lifestyle brand Monocle. There are many boutique shops and cafes around here as well along with great cocktail bars. With all this, if you are staying in budget accommodation in Wan Chai this part of the city is good for a leisurely evening stroll that will leave you refreshed.


Tai Yuen Street Market

Open every day from 9 am to 6 pm, Tai Yuen Street Market is also a nice place to visit with toy shops around. There barbies and lego bricks for the best prices you could find! Much cheaper than the department stores, that's for sure! There are also a few hawkers selling clothes and other small knickknacks as souvenirs.


Brim 28

This is a small mall that is more focused on dining rather than shopping. However, there are a few shops that are open here. Deli is open to serve imported goods and the Chinese Arts and Crafts shop is ideal for growing artists.


Wan Chai Computer Centre

Although not the most exciting or enjoyable shopping experience, this is the best place to hit if you are in search of some of those modern-day gadgematics. Laptops, SD card, waterproof cameras, you name it they have it! With so many shops around, this is a great place to bargain and get your money's worth!


Oriental 188 Shopping Centre

This is yet another place to find phones, computers and whatnots. The prices here are competitive as well, but the range of products that are available aren't as many as those at Wan Chai Computer Centre. Still, Oriental 188 Shopping Centre is popular among gamers who come looking for consoles and other items.


Pacific Place

If you are a fan of fashion and major designer brands, this mall has 4 storeys full of it all. Hermes, Fendi, Cartier, Chanel and other classy world-famous brands can be found here. Dining and cinema options are available too.


Wan Chai Wet Market

If you would like to see the fresh produce of Hong Kong, the best place to be is the Wan Chai Wet Market. It's just a 10-minute walk from Dorsett Wanchai Hong Kong and other hotels.
