    Is everything expensive in Tsim Sha Tsui? Far from it. Avoid the rip-off electrical and camera outlets of Nathan Road and walk on to Granville Road and the atmospheric Granville Circuit that require their own dedicated section. If you’re coming here by underground train (MTR), take the B1 exit at Cameron Road and walk up Nathan to Granville. Here’s you’ll find a huge assortment of garments that won’t hurt your wallet. Blouses and shirts start from HK$30-$40 though you can come across tousled items for less than $20 in must-sell-today cardboard boxes and instant closing-sale DVD shops will practically beg you to take away their CDs. This is the place for Hong Kong bargains and street shopping at its best. Look for the best deals and seasonal winter and summer sales with up to 90 percent off normal prices.
