Shopping on Lantau Island may lack the chic boutiques and swanky malls commonly found on the main island of Hong Kong, but it has some of Hong Kong's most popular outlet stores. The island attracts bargain hunters looking to shop for heavily discounted designer brands. 

    And for those who forget or haven’t completed their shopping list before getting on the plane, Hong Kong International Market has ample retail outlets within its terminals – most items are even at tax-free prices. You could also seek out some of the local villages on the island and shop for local delicacies and handicrafts.

    Citygate Outlets Hong Kong is one of the city’s first outlet malls, with over 80 international brands offering attractive discounts year-round. Discounts usually start from 30% to 70% off the original price, and you might enjoy bigger discounts on special occasions. Everything on offer are authentic and in good quality, but are usually from previous seasons.

    Located on Lantau Island, Citygate Outlets is about a 10-minute drive from Hong Kong International Airport, making it a popular spot for tourists to enjoy some shopping prior to their flight.
