Little Koo’s guide to online shopping in Hong Kong

When I first arrived in Hong Kong, I felt very frustrated that most shops here do not seem to have much of an online presence compared to what I was used to in the UK. Since then I have discovered that many places do have online shopping, it’s just not as easy to find! So I thought I’d compile all the ones I’ve found in the hopes that other people find it useful when they are looking to shop online.

Little Koo's guide to online shopping in Hong Kong

 

As a disclaimer, I should mention that I haven’t tried most of the shops listed below. The list is based on recommendations from other people, and many are websites that I’ve not tried.

I have also not included certain types of small businesses (such as handmade gifts) since these are covered by the excellent online directory Little Business Love which has a range of listings in categories such as Beauty & Body, Homewares & Decor and Jewellery. Check it out for heaps more online Hong Kong businesses!

  1. Bookmarked! This is a great resource, glad you did this! There are a few outlets on your list from which I order regularly – I would only add a section for pet lovers. I used to order a lot from http://www.petproject.hk/ but when they stopped carrying Sam’s favourite cat litter I switched to http://epet.hk/ and they have a fast delivery service and always include some cat food samples.
