This post is based on yet another Hong Kong shopping trip. I wasn’t lying when I said I did a lot of shopping! There are shopping malls as you come out of pretty much every underground (known as the MTR) stations so it is hard not to look.
I was going to have lunch with my family the other day but I was early and had time to kill so decided to have a shop around the shopping mall at the MTR station. All of a sudden I came across an optician with cool designs and unbelievably good prices!
The cheapest glasses start from $380HKD which equals to about £30! So for £30 you will get a pair of funky glasses along with your basic single vision lenses and you can pick them up in an hour! Now that is what I called efficiency! In Hong Kong everything is about speed and being efficient, yet another reason why I love that place.
You are probably thinking if they are that cheap they can’t be great quality… well you are wrong! They are actually pretty good and not that bad at all. I mean of course you are not getting the best hinges etc but the designs and quality I think are pretty spot on and at that price you can afford to buy about four pairs. I didn’t end up buying any just because I didn’t have enough time to chose them but next time I am in Hong Kong I will be stocking up!
