Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Tax-free shopping on Lantau a mere hop from the airport; CityGate is to date the only discount shopping mall in Hong Kong and is predictably packed out over the weekend. There is a quality range of 80 stores, mostly high-end brands such as Dunhill, Burberry, DKNY, Diane von Furstenberg, and Gieves and Hawkes, with some boutiques offering up to 70 per cent off main-street prices. Food options in The Square include noodles and dim sum, and there is an MTM Spa for last-minute pampering before boarding flights.
Opening hours vary by store.
