Along with Tsimshatsui, Causeway Bay is where shoppers in Hong Kong love to spend their money. If the crowds in Hong Kong overwhelm you, wait until you see the intersection of Hennessy Road and Sogo, one of the most popular department stores in the area on one of the busiest streets. Shopping in Causeway Bay is not confined to the biggest department stores of Mitsukoshi, Sogo and Lane Crawford. Jardine's Crescent and Lee Garden Road are two of the best spots for bargain hunters in Causeway Bay. Welcome to China for Canton trade fair. HRC is pleasure to provide Guangzhou hotels booking, China tour guide and Indochina tour packages for you.

If you shop and entertain in Hong Kong, do not miss Causeway Bay.  The place was a shoal more than a hundred years ago. After reclamation it was earth-based and gradually became a commercial area with an interconnecting road system. Now, it serves as a very popular center for shopping, dining and nightlife in Hong Kong.

Jardine's Crest
Street market
Given its location behind the giant Forever 21 outlet and in the vicinity of the eye-catching Hysan Place, it’s easy to walk past Jardine’s Crescent without seeing anyting special.
Jardine's Crescent is a long and narrow street market cramped with clothing, accessories and tacky souvenir stores at good value. It’s a place to polish your bargaining skills.
There are more shops behind the stalls on the side, too.
