Let the City shopping guide begin!
According to China Highlights : Wealthy Hong Kong shoppers prefer to personally shop for luxury products in the malls instead of shopping online, and, until recently, there was a surge of Mainland Chinese luxury shoppers. Both groups of people spent so much that Hong Kong luxury stores were top in the world until the recent downtrend in 2014. But Hong Kong still remains among the top in the world as of 2015.
I personally shop here with my family most of the time! You’ll find me here often when I’m in Hong Kong, why? Because it’s near our hotel plus who’s not going to be captivated by this gorgeous luxury mall.
The most wealthy people shop in Landmark since this is where the stores are most luxurious. The price tags are about the highest found in the city! In fact it is out of range for most regular people even wanting to shop there.
Landmark is found below the 5 star luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong Central District. You’ll find a cavernous atrium with luxury stores, and often the space at the middle of the mall contains extravagant holiday decorations, which I personally admire, you can check my instagram for the photos. Moreover, the company that owns the mall owns four other adjacent malls that are interconnected.
