There’s nothing quite like the feeling of adding a bunch of items to the shopping bag and then not checking out. Designer items aside, there actually are a lot of websites that ship FREE* to Hong Kong, and stocks a bunch of wallet-friendly and quality items. Here’s our top 10!
(*with reasonable amount of purchase)
This is a little bit of a cheat, but Sephora just opened a Hong Kong site which probably ships products from their Singapore store. This means that they’ll ship for a lot cheaper, a.k.a. orders over $350HKD. Helloooooo Sephora Collection!
This Singaporean brand is known for their affordable footwear and accessories. It’s a perfect alternative to the usual stuff you get here in the ‘Kong, and it has free shipping to Hong Kong upon any purchase. #yesplease
What is it, you ask? Other than stocking a bunch of supplements, herbs and baby stuff, it actually also sells make-up & bath products at fantastic prices. Real Techniques brushes are a bargain from there (~$80HKD a pop!), and the same goes for E.L.F. Cosmetics, Physician’s Formula and EcoTools.
This one is a no-brainer, because I’m sure pretty much everyone has bought from ASOS at least once in their lifetime. You’ll find pretty much everything under the sun from them when it comes to fashion, but our fave is their affordable in-house ASOS Petite line, which stocks dresses tailored for smaller/shorter girls!
A well-established high street brand in the UK, Next now ships to Hong Kong in 3-4 working days, and free of charge too for orders above $250HKD. Looking for a bunch of new work dresses? Or shoes that aren’t limited to size 34-38? This is your holy grail. They also stock childrenswear so you can get shopping for the entire fam.
You know all those #ootd posts from international fashion bloggers? A good part of their clothes probably comes from this place. Now that they’ve expanded to Asia (free shipping for orders above $100USD), you can expect designer and in-house items that are fashionable AND affordable. This is a fab alternative to ASOS and Nastygal.
Another popular Asian fashion online destination, ZALORA has expanded a lot and quickly over the past year or two. You can now even shop for big brands like Cotton On, Topshop, River Island, Dorothy Perkins and more, on top of their budget in-house line that offers basic but fashionable pieces. Keep a look out for their frequent discount codes!
Why, yes. Zara now lets you shop from the comforts of your own couch/bed/office chair. Not only will you get access to all the sizes and styles without having to fight the girl next to you, you can have it delivered to your door. Neat, huh? Free delivery for orders over $400HKD, that’s basically the price of a cute top!
9) J Crew
Okay, this isn’t exactly the most affordable brand on earth. But it IS convenient, and it DOES ship absolutely free to Hong Kong. We’re suspecting it’s because they now have a store in IFC... In any case, we love that they have regular or petite options, and it does have a bigger variety than the physical store.
Looking for a safer alternative to Taobao? Look no further. Yesstyle stocks budget style items that are a lot of fun but also extremely affordable – e.g. blusher for $31HKD, or a dress for $80HKD. It’s no dodgy product either. You can now rest your head knowing that their beauty items are from Korea/Japan/Taiwan, while the clothes are, well. Korean-inspired. Free EXPRESS shipping with $250HKD purchase!
