Does anyone know of neat shopping areas, boutiques, women's clothing and accessories that are not extremely expensive?
FA Yuen Street Market and Cooked Food Centre and Ladies Market are two MUSTS. Fa Yuen Street is a local market. No haggling, all prices are written down, which makes it a really easy place to shop. They have lots of fresh fruit shops, clothes, etc., all for cheap local prices. On the other hand you have Ladies Market, which is for tourist-y things and a great place to get presents!
Another great day trip is Stanley Market. They do lots of local housewares and clothes. Basically any Chinese tea sets, table runners, chopsticks, etc. that you may want to buy you will get here for peanuts.
