Sham Shui Po is known for its street market selling electronics and accessories. Compared to the artificial facade of slickness in Central on the Hong Kong Island side, Sham Shui Po is the heartland of Kowloon.

Though Sham Shui Po is not your typical shopping paradise that Hong Kong is famous for, this is a place not to be missed by IT and electronics fans who wish to browse through the latest and most reasonably priced gadgets. There are so many stores offering a large variety of products and gadgets that you can practically spend the whole day there.

6. Stanley — a Lovely Seaside Town with a Nice Market

If you want to explore a local market in Hong Kong, you should not miss Stanley Market. It is a large open-air marketplace welcomed by tourists and locals alike. It is a lovely market right next to the beach so shopping there is complemented by cooling ocean breezes.
