Shopping Blog: Citygate Outlets Mall in Tung ChungBy Elmer W. Cagape Aug 15, 2008 12:00AM UTC
If you’re a tourist on the hunt for sale items this summer, you would probably be asking if there is a mall that houses these outlet malls. When friends visit Hong Kong and ask for outlet shops, I think they know better than I am.
There is an outlet for Nike and Adidas in Kwun Tong, Esprit in Sheraton in Tsim Sha Tsui, etc. I am speechless about this because ever since I came to HK, I have never been a bargain hunter, which in the process would like to find out where the outlet shops are. If I go to those places, I would be disappointed to find out they’re no longer there.
Outlet shops refer to special stores of certain brands that offer marked down price for all items on sale. For example, Samsonite has a shop in Central, but if you like to get a cheaper line of brand-new luggage, you may want to try its shop in The Peak. Items sold at outlet shops differ from those at main shops, which display new arrivals and recently released designs.
If you just arrived in Hong Kong and your purpose of coming is only shopping for discounts, you don’t have to look further. You can find a mall that has them all! At Citygate Outlets in Tung Chung you would be able to find brands like Armani Exchange, Calvin Klein Jeans, Nautica, Esprit, Vivienne Tam, Polo Ralph Lauren, Bauhaus, Benetton and many more design fashion brands. Discounts rates are up to 90%. No kidding.
If you’re looking for that Samsonite shop but thinks The Peak is too far or too crowded, there is also one in Citygate Outlets along with outlets shops for City Chain (watches), Mabelle, Clarks (shoes), Rockport and Body Shop.
Since Citygate Outlets is in Tung Chung, which is near Hong Kong airport, staying close would be ideal. After a quick check in at the airport hotel, one can take the short bus ride to the outlet shop. You can take the S1 route by Citybus which stops by Regal Airport Hotel. The destination terminal of this bus will be Tung Chung MTR where Citygate Outlets is just adjacent to the subway terminal.
Another way to get there is to take the MTR and get off at Tung Chung station’s exit B.
If you think you deserve more than just shopping, Hong Kong Disneyland and Ngong Ping 360 is just around the corner. In fact, Ngong Ping cable car attraction terminal is just within the area of Tung Chung MTR station and the S1 bus terminal. So you don’t have to go to Kowloon and Hong Kong to experience rides, shopping and dining if you’re in Tung Chung.
