The MegaBox shopping mall is located in East Kowloon and offers with more than 1.1 million square feet of retail space a unique mix of shopping and entertainment options. The box shaped shopping complex with its warehouse-type architecture provides about 200 retail shops, restaurants, cafés and supermarkets space on 18 floors and is the largest in this area. Besides offering over 1000 parking spaces, the MegaBox shopping mall features the first international sized ice rink with sea view called Mega Ice, Hong Kong’s first and biggest IMAX Theatre (another IMAX can be found in the iSquare shopping mall), East Kowloon’s largest Japanese Department Store (Aeon Jusco), Hong Kong’s largest home furnishing and accessories shop, a fitness store/gym and two cockpit-sized Boeing 737-800 flight simulators among others.
The first three levels focus mainly on fashion and accessories. Although, brand names such as H&M, Quicksilver, Roxy, Tonino Lamborghini, Nikko and sporting goods Gigasports can be found in the MegaBox mall, it might not worthwhile to travel all the way to shop for these fashion items. Levels 3 to 5 mainly focus on home improvement, furniture, homeware and accessories. You are able to find among others the Swedish giant IKEA, J.M. Soft, Pricerite or I Love Kitchen shops. The following levels 6 to 9 are dedicated to kids, family and lifestyle. Toys’R’Us, Chickeeduck, Hallmark Babies, Captain Kiddo, Harvest Toys, Mothercare as well as restaurants, cafés and a Wellcome supermarket can be found here. Entertainment options and most of the restaurants are located on levels 10 to 14. The Mega Ice rink is located on level 10 while the IMAX Theatre fills the floors 11 and above. For all of you who would like to do some workout: there is a gym on the 18th floor.
Insider: Some of you might remember the old Kai Tak Hong Kong Airport and its challenging starts and landings. The MegaBox shopping complex is built where once the Kai Tak Airport has been.
Due to its location the MegaBox shopping mall is off the beaten tourist’s tracks and mainly designed for the needs of locals. Nonetheless, the MegaBox shopping complex can be a good option for you on a rainy day if you travel with kids. Having an ice rink, movie theatre, Game Zone, karaoke bar plus such cool things like a flight simulator might save the day with laughs and joy. Besides, there is another shopping mall in close distant (Telford Plaza).
Opening Hours: 10:00am-10:30pm (daily)

How to Get to MegaBox:

Address: MegaBox, Enterprise Square Five, 38 Wang Chiu Road, Kowloon Bay, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Like already mentioned above, the MegaBox mall is off the beaten tourist’s tracks and a little bit far away from the normal sightseeing attractions. However, if you still want to take a closer look at the MegaBox shopping complex you have to take the MTR to the Kowloon Bay station and take Exit A.
In addition, the mall can be reached by the following buses: 15A, 107, 215X, 224M, 297, 606 and 641 and Green Mini buses 48, 68, 106, 110 and 111.
When you exit the MTR station you will experience another shopping mall called Telford Plaza. You either have the option to walk to the MegaBox mall or take a free shuttle bus. For the free shuttle bus follow the ground floor of Telford Plaza 1. Then take the escalators up to the Circle K Store. At the Circle K store you have to turn left to get to Telford Plaza 2. Then take the escalator down to the taxi and bus stop. Usually, you will see a long queue waiting for the free shuttle bus.
Although, we recommend taking the free shuttle bus (especially in the hot summer months) you also can reach the MegaBox mall by foot. The walk is about 10-15 minutes Instead of turning left at the Circle K convenience store walk straight to the end of the Telford Boulevard. Take the footbridge down to the street levels of Wai Yip Street. Then follow Sheung Yeut Road until you hit Wang Chiu Road (you will pass the Chevalier Centre and Oriental New Building). On your left hand-side you will see MegaBox already.
