- Try to discover yourself standing outside SOGO department store, facing the busiest pedestrian intersection in Hong Kong Island. Small shops, large department stores, modern shopping centres and market lanes all jostle for attention. Jardine's Bazaar and Jardines' crescent are crowded stalls selling cheap clothing. And the crowds come, particularly on Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Be sure to arrive only after 3pm because most boutique fashion stores. Ever-expanding pedestrian-crowded areas ease the rush as shoppers purchase anything their heart desires: designer goods, mainstream clothing, factory outlet bargains, electrical goods, modern furniture, household items, food from around the world and much more. Cinemas, coffee shops, karaoke bars and a myriad of restaurants provide getaways from all that retail therapy, but not necessarily from the crowds. You can backtrack to Victoria Park and get away from the most concentrated areas of consumerism on the island, as well as the crowd.
