Thread: Is Shenzhen or Hongkong better for shopping for ladies?

    Default Is Shenzhen or Hongkong better for shopping for ladies?

    Planning for a shopping trip this month, need some advices from you guys

    Which country is better for shopping? Gf buys mostly local designer stuffs, doesn't buy branded and imitation goods.

    Heard that Shenzhen has got a lot of imitated goods, but Hongkong is mostly about branded goods. So which one is more suitable for us?

    Hong Kong cause I'm from there!

    I've not been to Shen Zhen, but you don't go to anywhere just to shop right? You'll also be there to experience their culture and way of life.... I'll vote for HK anytime for the atmosphere/food/shopping, but it depends on what you want

    I usually go HK to shop for cameras.

    Never had the experience of shopping for ladies.

    (Seriously, go for HK. I'm against supporting the counterfeiting industry - of which Shenzhen is known for. Say no to fakes!)

    Been to both HK and Shenzhen multiple times. Each is good in their own way.

    Just check out the air fair, whichever is cheaper go to that location. HK and Shenzhen is like Singapore and JB, very near only. From Shenzhen, go to Luohu for shopping then pop by into HK lor.

    Because my gf is using her free tix and i'm accompanying her.. Her destination covers Shenzhen but not HK.. so ideally we would like to just shop and eat in Shenzhen.. if HK is not too much of a difference in terms of the things we want to buy, then we can save the time traveling to/fro HK.

    Shenzhen is dirt cheap. A lot of the "bargains" in HK come from Shenzhen.

    I know you guys have been there and back already but this is for others who are headed to HK..... and contemplating a trip over to shenzhen for shopping

    If you do not support imitation/counterfeit goods... then AVOID Lowu Shopping Center that is attached to the HK/China border crossing immigration area..... real locals also mostly avoid this place unless they are specifically targetting counterfeit stuff

    Out of China immigration, there are signs that point to the underground subway/metro.... very modern (less than 3 years old i believe).... a mere 2rmb to 5rmb is ticket price so its extremely cheap.... plus HUGE numbers of stops

    Map and information on the Shenzhen Metro (Subway) is here and others if you google
    Shenzhen_Metro

    Guo Mao Station (World Trade Centre) For shopping of higher end local china brands take the subway to Guo Mao Station... it is a huge shopping mall with both local and international brands

    Hui Zhang Zong Xin (Exhibition Center) Station Is about 3 times larger than Singapore Expo and every weekend SURE got alot of exhibitions and factory sales going on there

    Hua Qiang Lu Station Essentially a giant district where they sell mostly local women's fashion and chinese electronics (what a perfect mix) .... walk to the center of the action and ask for directions to Hua Qiang Bei area . Always love going there to check out the weird electronics they have

    Lao Jie Station (Old Street) This station is in the Dongmen district where the centerpiece is Bu Xin Jie (pedestrian streets where vehicles are prohibited) and about 3 soccer fields in size with loads of local fashion. Also there is a big Uniqlo outlet here at Sunshine Plaza (Tai Yang Guang Chang) ..... u will see many people from HK flocking to this outlet
