“Shopping for all budgets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Times Square in Causeway Bay has was one of Hong Kong’s first mega-malls and, with 16 floors holding 230 shops, this shrine of shopping still dwarfs much of the competition. This is one of Hong Kong's Top Five Shopping Malls. The real draw here is that while most Hong Kong malls pitch there business at customers who own palaces and shop with gold bars, Hong Kong Times Square offers an excellent mix of mid-range stores aimed at the average shopper. The mall is also a winning mix of local Hong Kong brands, such as the Fortress electronics store or Lane Crawford department store, with major international brands, such as Marks and Spencers and Kookai. One draw back can be the huge crowds the mall draws, and it can be crushingly packed at times.

Times Square has managed to attract some of the city’s big name restaurants, and you won’t find a better mall in town for fine dining. Highlights include the award winning Wasabisabi, one of the coolest Japanese restaurants in the city, and Water Margin, where you can try outstanding traditional Shanghainese Cuisine. Aside from that, there is also an excellent food court, which includes the inspirationally named ‘Curry in a Hurry’. The complex also includes a cinema.

Causeway Bay just is not Times Square but once you are in, it is difficult to leave in a hurry unless you miss something. Outside one finds the Green Mini Buses that are economical to use or the Trams, depending upon the direction you wish to travel. Naturally there is the ordinary buses or taxis and oth forgetting the MTR so there is no excuse not to travel to Causeway Bay!

“Busy, busy, busy....consumerism is King here.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Busy, busy, busy and then some - even Wan Chai has little on this hectic intersection of malls, eateries and a street market. Noise abounds, people zig - zag in every direction, traffic jockeys for that extra inch along the chaotically, congested Hennessy Rd and other arterial streets surrounding this shopping enclave.

Consumerism is King here, but it left us a bit unmoved overall, as nothing much seems to have changed. It’s more or less the same as most other shopping precincts dotting the Island and Kowloon. We are not fans of being squeezed along on a tide of people with an overwhelming need to shop.

That being said, it’s not the same for everyone and if anything there is are a myriad of things to impress like the hypnotizing neon signs, the ‘in your face’ billboards, the sight of shoppers enjoying themselves and the enticing smell and eye - catching foodie delights along the way – in other words – each to their own.The tram trip through here is a great way to view nearly every nuance which is what we did to get here and beyond.

Enjoy your experience!

“Shop shop shop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Mall rats will definitely love it here. A lot of people to see and places to shop at. Shopping for anything is so much fun here. Going to and from this place is no hassle at all with the tram, mtr and bus stops near.

Still love the place - not much changes to shopping varieties and eateries. The tram is a good way to go see HK
