Once Upon A Cantonese Winter: Causeway Bay

Feb 21, 2011 — We had a brief tour of Causeway Bay, one of Hong Kong’s major shopping districts. It can be compared to Tokyo’s Shibuya and New York’s Times Square because of the large number of pedestrians crossing Hennessy Road.

Causeway Bay is the shopping counterpart of Tsim Sha Tsui. Here you can find a lot of shopping malls, department stores, high-end flagship stores, and street markets.

There are many other areas to look out for when you’re in Causeway Bay like the street markets at Jardine’s Bazaar and Jardine’s Crescent (where I scored some cheap harem pants and tops during my trip in 2009), Times Square – a 16-storey shopping mall that has around 200+ shops and Fashion Walk. 

Ironically, we didn’t shop. Not even a single shirt. We just dropped by the Wellcome Superstore at Great Gorge Street to buy some chocolates and other snacks before heading back to Tsim Sha Tsui.
