Living In Hong Kong Shopping For Home Things To Do

Get your Xmas shopping sorted!

If you’re newly arrived, make sure you add the dates of the Prestige Christmas Gift Fairs at the Conrad Hong Kong to your diary. With almost 150 pop-up shops, these fabulously festive shopping events are fun and the perfect way to put a big dent in your Christmas shopping. We love that there’s always a ton of Hong Kong-themed gifts to take back for holiday visits to home. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the stalls for this year.

Sunset Survivors

Meet the people keeping Hong Kong’s traditional industries alive in this coffee-table book by local author Lindsay Varty, with photographs by Gary Jones.
