The Citywalk shopping mall is located in Tsuen Wan (New Territories) and is promoted as Hong Kong’s First Green Shopping Mall. Architects and designers have been inspired by the famous Roppongi Hills in Japan. The Citywalk shopping mall attempts to integrate people, technology, art and nature with some new and innovative ideas such as a 40,000 square feet Citywalk Piazza with trees, water and ponds, the 8,000 square feet Vertical Garden or the iGlobe, Hong Kong’s First “ArchiSculpture”, which is a giant pixilated wall with over 1300 pieces of LED discs integrated into the exterior facade of the shopping mall. The idea behind the new concept is that shopping and nature can exist in harmony offering guests, shoppers and visitors some additional relaxing benefits.
The Citywalk shopping mall consists of two separate malls (Citywalk and Citywalk 2) connected by a pedestrian walkway. Altogether, the Citywalk shopping mall features over 350 shops, stores and restaurants on three floors and 500,000 square feet area and can be considered as a solid mid-range shopping mall. Furthermore, the Citywalk shopping mall tries to distinguish and set itself apart from other shopping malls and competitors by having over 30% of tenants with well-known Japanese brands. So if you are interested or keen to purchase especially products and brands from Japan you might want to have a closer look.
The Citywalk shopping mall had a rough start due to its location and it took quite some time to rent out the majority of shops and although some of the larger/international brand names are not present at Citywalk shopping mall, shoppers still have a good selection of electronics (DG Lifestyle store, Fortress, Suning Citicall, Ninki Denki, etc.), beauty (L’Oreal, Sasa, The Body Shop, Mannings, etc.), fashion (Addidas, Converse, Levi’s, Ice Fire, Kappa, Li Ning, Nike, Quicksilver Uniqlo), jewelry, watches, and accessory products. Besides having Marks & Spencer as the anchor store of the shopping mall, visitors can enjoy the latest movies in the Golden Harvest movie theater.
Please note: The Citywalk shopping mall has to be similar evaluated as the tmtplaza shopping mall or Golden Coast Piazza. All of these venues have the inconvenient location in common and are far off the normal tourists routes. Especially, if you are a first time visitor to Hong Kong and/or just a few days in town we would not recommend traveling this far due to the fact that there are plenty of good alternatives in the TST, Central, Wanchai and Causeway Bay area.
Opening Hours: 10:00am-10:00pm (daily)
