Hey all, my Wife and I are thinking of heading to Hong Kong for our next holiday. We have very different plans, she wants to spend as much money as possible shopping, and I want to find some new products and suppliers to make as much money as possible.

Has anybody been to HK to find suppliers? Can you recommend the best way to go about it? I have been searching for some trade fairs, and am thinking this would be my best option.

Also, any recommendations of which area to stay in would be great, catering for my wife's shopping plans and good access to transport for me.

Hi Simo,

That's going to be a great time. Can't help with places to stay, but your idea about hitting some trade shows is I solid one I think. If you focus on those type of trade fairs, you have the opportunity to not only get some good product ideas, but you can make some very valuable connections.

:)

Hi Simo,

That sounds exciting! :) There are several hotels to choose from along Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, and I think this is a good spot to be in while in HK. It has a concentration of stores, shopping malls/spots (Park Lane Shopper's Boulevard, cosmetic stores in Granville Road and Harbor City) , restaurants and very near to the Victoria Bay / Avenue of Stars, Tsim Sha Tsui Beach, Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Space Museum and the Cultural Center. So many things to do and to check out at Hong Kong one visit will not be enough. :) From this city you can also board a ferry and cross to Macau. :) Along Nathan Road there's transportation/bus that can conveniently bring you back to the airport. The real struggle in visiting these countries is the language barrier, very few speak English and if you have someone who can guide and translate, you'll have fun, otherwise you need to do a lot of planning. :)

If you need any further help let us know. Take care.


Irene
