Up the stairs: the hidden shops of Hong Kong’s high rises
Forget about magnets or t-shirts as souvenirs; instead pick up some locally designed writing paper from The Tree Stationery. Tucked two stories above bustling Causeway Bay, it offers everything from pencils and ink to stationery designed by local artists and hard-to-find brands. The owner will take the time to explain the design behind every item – for example, a desk calendar depicting cats living in Hong Kong, illustrated by a Japanese lady who missed the cats she took care of back home after moving here. You’ll leave wanting to put pen to paper again.
