Shopping Heaven a.k.a. the 55th Hong Kong Brands and Products Expo

Two brave and fearless Localhood volunteers – Chris and Ania – went on a quest to explore the legendary Hong Kong Brands and Products Expo. Not so well known among the expats, it is suuuuuper popular with the local community. The Expo site was totally packed even on a weekday and even with required 50% of its normal capacity, so if you are going there, be prepared, it will be crowded.

Held annually at Victoria Park, the Expo was originally established in 1938 and organised by The Chinese Manufacturers' Association of Hong Kong (CMA). After one year suspension (thanks again Covid 😊) this huge bazaar is back.


This year, the expo started on December 11th and it will last until January 3rd. It's a pity that due to the covid restrictions, the sample tasters and cooked food shops are not opened but still there are 830 local branded shops waiting for you!
