I did not travel to Hong Kong and the book might be helpful for travelers to Hong Kong. I was in Shanghai and there was very little information on Shanghai. What was there was not very helpful. Went to small shoe shop that was recommended and they had about 30 pairs of shoes (total). Wasn't worth the trip.

This was the most disorganized travel guide specializing in the shopping area, I have ever come upon. The cross referencing required called for a Ph.D degree. One of the author's favorite shopping street (where she had to buy another suitcase to get her purchases home) was filled with knock off tennis shoes stores - nothing else could be bought there.
