Hong Kong Asia's World City

Kowloon East and Kowloon West

Kowloon East and Kowloon West

Away from the frantic nerve centre of Kowloon is a more residential world. And it shouldn’t take you long to notice that Hong Kong’s residents are just as obsessed with the pastime of purchasing as the city’s international visitors. In Kowloon’s relatively less crowded eastern and western edges, this translates into an interesting variety of shopping malls that carry both international and local brands and foods, as well as state-of the-art entertainment facilities.

On the west side, the glitzy ELEMENTS is a large mall with soothing interiors and stores offering mid to upper–priced brands. It’s connected to a business, residential, leisure and transport complex that includes the giant International Commerce Centre, MTR Kowloon Station and the Airport Express. Also well-served by transport is Olympian City, which has 250 shops.

To the east there is the late-night apm, the family-oriented Megabox and a fair few themed malls, such as Wonderful World of Whampoa, which is built in and around a ship, Telford Plaza, consisting of several boulevards, and Plaza Hollywood (no prizes for guessing the theme there.)
