most retailers will be opened but local stores normally closed for several days

You don't have to worry about it, most of the shops will still be open during the chinese new year, expecially the brand shops. The culture has changed for many many years, most of the shops closed at least 3 days when i was young, since 10 years ago..In recent year, people like to spend their chinese new year holiday to shopping or travel rather than go visiting relatives. Most of the shopping malls and restaurants are open for business till 9;30pm.

I like your day 5 itinerary, langham place and argyle are my favourite places to go whenever i go to hongkong for holiday. I can shop at these two places for two days without getting sick of it.

I didnt manage to go citygate the last time when i was in hongkong. But i heard that its the first outlet mall in Hong Kong, They have more than 80 international brands offering yearly discount of at least 30% to 70% on designer fashion, sports, beauty, accessories, children’s wear, and home items. There’s also a spa, multi-screen cinema, cool restaurants, and Asia’s largest outdoor kinetic fountain. Its located approximately 10 minutes from the Hong Kong International Airport.

Argyle is a nice place to shop, they have afew levels and some shops they do sell very nice and cheap clothing. You have to slowly walk and explore so as to find cheap and nice stuff there.

Hotels connected to MTR?
Hi, I would love some recommendations on hotels that are connected to an MTR station, either via a mall or directly connected.
I'm thinking of going to HK on my own in May. I stayed at Royal Plaza ($150-200 per night) the last time and I like it, but would like to know if there are other cheaper options.

Maybe you can check out The Mercer, situated at the heart of Hong Kong, one of my hongkong friend told me that it is a new boutique hotel located in Sheung Wan which offers premium dining, with an abundance of Michelin starred and other highly recommended restaurants. Central, SoHo and Lan Kwai Fong are just minutes away, each providing Hong Kong’s finest shopping, dining and entertainment. The boutique hotel is typified by exquisitely tasteful contemporary design; spacious and luxuriously furnished rooms providing unparalleled comfort and privacy. The Mercer is served by Hong Kong’s excellent transport network, with the Hong Kong Macau Ferry Terminal as well as Sheung Wan, Central and Hong Kong Airport Express MTR stations. Its just one minute walk to Sheung Wan MTR station, and within easy walking distance of Central’s prime business, shopping and dining locations.
