Plenty of clothes and souvenir vendors. You have to bargain; pay what you feel it is worth but never pay full price. Don’t be afraid to leave if you do not get the deal you want, you can always come back and get it.

On the other side of the Hong Kong island well worth the bus ride with the scenery, plaza and bays you go by. The market was a true bargain place compared with the temple or ladies market in Kowloon. There were good brands and seemed...More

Stanley Market has many vendors who will sell you souvenirs from Hong Kong. Haggling is expected. Beware of the T-Shirt vendors. The first one we visited had very good prices for embroidered designs. When the shirts were brought out the tags were cut in half...More

Take a 6 or 6x from central. We found it best to get an octopus travel card and top it up as necessary.

I also don't know. At least it didn't catch my attention. It could be not since I can't remember any store with office supply. Sorry

Snow globes! (3 Replies)
Where are we likely to find souvenir snow globes, if at all? Would Stanley Market be our best bet? Thanks in anticipation!

It would need to be some touristy place, like inside The Peak (the upper peak tram terminus), or Peak Galleria, or Temple Street Night Market.

Lo Wu shopping verses Stanley Market (7 Replies)
WE are going to Hong Kong in May and have been hearing about the Shopping in Shenzhen, we have been to HK previously and had a great time at Stanley Market. How does LoWu shopping compare? Is it worth it to go to Shenzhen? Is it easy enough to ride the train there?

Response fromYerac|
LoWu shopping is wild! Even if you don't shop it's a great experience. It's much bigger than Stanley (five floors I think). However do be prepared for the touts. They make the touts in HK look like trainee shop assistants. It is easy to get there by train on the KCR from Tsimshatsui East station which is near the Star Ferry terminal. You do need a visa.

It's going to be crowded but I would say you probably could. The thing to do is to group them in specific areas and do them at the same time. If I was going to miss anything out it would be Stanley market. That's just me mind you, I don't like it very much, and it's quite a way out. There's also the avenue of stars, I've never I stood the fascination with this. I've walked along it and it took me about five minutes, largely because I don't care much about stars :-).
