On the other hand, Harbour City is famous for being Hong Kong’s largest multipurpose shopping mall, which covers most of Canton Road in Kowloon. It has five parts: Ocean Terminal, the Pacific Club Kowloon, Ocean Centre, the Gateway and Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel.
Harbour City offers numerous designer boutiques such as Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace.
If you love jewellery and accessories, the Jade Market is your next stop. Located at the intersection of Battery and Kansu streets in Kowloon, this district offers stalls filled with jade items. Tourists must visit the district with a jade expert to avoid counterfeit items.
Stalls commonly sell jade accessories, which include rings, bangles, earrings and pendants. You might also come across odd finds for your souvenirs.
