This is the largest of the megamalls and certainly one of the largest in Asia. Conveniently located right next to the dock that disgorges passengers from cruise liners and just east of the Star Ferry, it stretches more than .8km (1/2 mile) along Canton Road and contains more than 700 outlets, with shops selling clothing, accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, antiques, electronic goods, furniture, housewares, toys, Asian arts and crafts, and much more. Harbour City is divided into four zones (designated different colors on the map of Harbour City): Ocean Terminal with its many shops relating to kids and sportswear, including LCX (a shopping destination for teenagers), Toys "R" Us (the largest of this chain in Asia), and Jumpin Gym (a game arcade); Ocean Centre, anchored by Marks & Spencer department store and the flagship store of Louis Vuitton; the Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel Arcade, consisting mostly of the Lane Crawford department store and restaurants; and the Gateway Arcade at its northernmost end. If you're searching for a specific shop, stores and restaurants often give their zone as their address. To most people, however, Harbour City may seem like one huge mall and the zones won't mean anything to them. Some shops are closed on Sunday but otherwise the hours are about 10 or 11am to 8 or 9pm.
