1. Jade Market
The Jade Market, just west of Nathan Road on the junction of Kansu and Battery Streets, is where vendors sell various shades and qualities of jade, a greenish stone that has great spiritual value to the Chinese. Actually more a place for locals than for tourists, visitors may have to go in for a long bargaining session with the persistent vendors before arriving at a good deal for a high quality piece of jade. Nevertheless, there are also plenty of trinkets and souvenirs at much lower prices.

Opening hours: 10am-3:30pm daily

2. Ladies Market
Also known as "Women's Street" because it used to sell goods only for women, Tung Choi Street is similar to Temple Street Night Market, except that it starts its trading day at noon. In addition to the street stalls, which sell anything from furiously beeping alarm clocks and glittering copy-watches to unisex clothes and CDs, there are also lots of small shops that sell all sorts of other stuff. The market is generally quite crowded, and a bit of pushing is just as expected as haggling over prices.

Opening hours: Noon-11pm daily
Neighbourhood: Kowloon

3. Lascar Row (Cat Street)
Cat Street used to be famous for its arts and crafts. But, today, as many dealers have moved to the Cat Street Galleries (near Lok Ku Road) and, with the growth of new antique shops on Hollywood Road, Cat Street has become a flea market for junk collectors. Still, you can find fascinating collections of odds and ends, and bits and pieces, and all sorts of useful and useless treasures.

4. Li Yuen Street East and West
Li Yuen Street East and West are two alleys, running parallel to each other between the Des Voeux Road and Queen's Road Central. These two narrow lanes are crowded with shops, street stalls and people. There is a lot to buy here: Hong Kong souvenirs, clothing, costume jewellery, handbags, hair and fashion accessories, watches, fabrics, shoes, and much more. Bargaining is expected, but even without a discount, most of the products here are pretty cheap.

5. Stanley
Home to Stanley Market—famous for the wide variety of relatively inexpensive goods such as Chinese souvenirs, rattan products, handicrafts and designer labels—Stanley offers more than just shopping. It also boasts a relaxing beach, a plethora of waterfront restaurants and bars, and the 18th century Tin Hau Temple. Stanley Prison, which is still in use today, is also historically important, as this is where Hong Kong civilians were held during the Second World War.

Looking for cheap clothes, food, watches, footwear? Temple Street is the place to go to. Almost everyone will find a bargain at this night market. Temple Street runs all the way from Man Ming Lane to Ning Po Street and is divided in two by the Tin Hau Temple, the street's namesake. For some street-stall food, it is best to head north of the temple, where anything from a bowl of noodles to a full seafood meal can be found. The hawkers usually start setting up at 6pm and the street is busiest from 8pm-10pm.

Магазины

1. Collectables
This tatty store is one of the few places in Hong Kong that stocks second-hand books, ancient CDs, and the odd gem, such as a priceless LP from the 50s. The books are conveniently divided into dog-eared novels, biographies of obscure motor racing drivers, New Age histrionics and sports annuals from the early 70s. A decent hard-back costs around HK$100 and an indecent paperback runs at about HK$50. The CDs are in good condition and if you take your time you will unearth something spectacular for about HK$60. Additional branches: 26 Hollywood Road, Central (telephone: 2559 9562).

2. Digiter Computer Solution
Like Jaguar cars, one is not supposed to call these computers 'used', so we will say they are 'pre-owned' laptops. But whatever you call them, Digiter has a few on display, and it is refreshing to find a legitimate, airy, tranquil shop that does not necessarily try to insist you need the latest and greatest model of computer for your needs. Of course they are pretty recent models anyway. They also sell fancy new Sony Viao's, so you may be tempted anyway, though these certainly are not cheap.
Address: Shop 1242-43, Windsor House, 311 Gloucester Road Causeway Bay Hong Kong Hong Kong
Opening hours: 11.30am-8pm daily
Telephone: +852 2915 7083

3. Flow
This shop feels a little crowded and looks quite disorganized, but it is worth a visit. Good bargains can be found in an extensive selection of recent fiction paperbacks for HK$20-40, National Geographics for HK$15, and somewhat dated travel guides starting at around HK$30. Also worth a look are those oversized artsy design titles, as some sell for under HK$100 in this shop. Other books cover Hong Kong and Asia, history, psychology, cookery and health. This bookshop also buys books direct from customers, though for a fraction of the original price.

4. Low Price Shop
This dingy shop is crammed with bric-a-brac, but a good look round will reveal some truly interesting stuff, even if not antique. Old Hong Kong share certificates, Chinese newspapers, and photos featuring people and scenes of early 20th century Hong Kong and China, all crowd the shop entrance. There are also cheap tarnished silver bowls, plates and spoons, ceramics, and chopstick holders alongside all sorts of Mao decorated items. Inside it is a tight melange of old books in English and Chinese, crammed in next to wooden jewellery boxes, dusty posters of nude girls and 1950s radios.

5. Auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's

These two world famous auction houses are located in Central where auctions take place twice a year, usually in the spring and autumn. Just make sure you do not flinch, twitch or wiggle at the wrong moment, or you could be the new owner of a priceless Van Gogh as well as the recipient of a phenomenal credit card bill!

Inside the dark and dusty store there is more of days gone by, such as tortoise shell glasses and bracelets, old Pepsi signs, brass lamps, and old telephones and radios.

A sculpture to suit every collector best sums up the environment here. The choice ranges from Guanyin goddess statues to Tang Dynasty sancai prancing horses.
