Global Travel Guide: These Hong Kong Stores Are Worth Checking Out
The White Noise Records is a record store with thirteen-year of history.


1. White Noise Records



The White Noise Records is a record store with thirteen-year of history. It is also a large independent record store, which is not commonly-seen in Hong Kong. The place is hard to find if you only use your navigation but don’t look up to see the “720 Shanghai Street” sign. The store carries rich collection of vinyl and CDs, and are classified based on detailed genres, from indie to pioneer experiment, to Hip Hop, Funk, and etc. Discs from the sixties and seventies can be seen here as well as some second-hand ones. You can see performance information and autograph posters on the walls here.


Address: 1/f., 720 Shanghai Street, Prince Edward, Kowloon, Hong Kong (Prince Edward Station C2 Exit)

 

2. ZOO-Records 



Another industry-famous but low key independent record store is ZOO-Records. Most vinyl sold here are newly released ones covering Indie, Classic and Rock. The owner has planned to purchase some second-hand collection, but you can still find numerous of CDs here. 


Address: 3/F President Commercial Centre, 608 Nathan Road, Mongkok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.


3. kubrick 



Take a walk for less than 700 meters you will see KUBRICK hiding in the residential area. The store is full of coffee aroma. The classic combination of books, videos and coffee enrich the artsy atmosphere. From time to to time, KUBRICK will be the venue for sharing events and music concerts.


Address: Prosperous Garden, Public Square St, Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong


4. hmv (Flagship Store)



Here we come to HMV Tung Lo Wan Flagship Store. You can find almost everything here including magazines, movie discs, audio equipment, and even motor bikes. Of course, vinyl is still the main product sold here.



The vinyl carried by HMV is more mainstream comparing to those in independent record stores. Coming through 3F where audio equipment is sold, you will find 4F a less crowded paradise for guitar lovers.

 

Address: 2-4/F, Pearl City, 22-36 Paterson Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong


5. 8FIVE2SHOP



8FIVE2SHOP is tightly related with Hip-Hop because it was opened by24HERBS member Brian Siswojo 18 years ago. It is a must-go for skateboard lovers, and is “Hong Kong’s first real street trend fashion/skateboard shop”. The store not only sells clothing and footwear related to the skateboarding, but also the equipment needed by skaters.


Address1/F, 522 Jaffe Rd, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong


6.X Game H.K. (Chai Wan Headquarter)



Finally, we visited X Game H.K, a well-known place selling extreme-sport gears. It is the only place you can get surfboards, and you can imagine the various categories of products that it’s selling.
