Yes we know, Hong Kong is a commercialised haven with an abundance of shops and malls, but the hottest new shopping destination on the Southside of the Island is somewhere you’ve GOT to check out. The Pulse in Repulse Bay is finally open, blending beach side shopping and gourmet dining on a long sandy promenade. This beach haven has long needed a bit more of a buzz, and the dazzling 180 degree panorama sea view definitely gives this new mall a relaxed vibe that transports you away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong… Find out a bit more about it below!
What is it?
The Pulse is a brand new shopping centre filled with a variety of shops, restaurants, supermarkets, galleries and family spots. And it is still expanding! Check out The Pulse’s Instagram and Facebook accounts for the latest updates.
Where is it?
Located away from the main hub of the city, The Pulse nestles itself within Hong Kong’s famous Repulse Bay beach. But not to worry, this new mall is lined with public transport. Simply catch the double decker buses 6, 6A, 6x, 65, 66, 73, 260, or the minibus 40 or 52, or even just grab a taxi and you’ll land yourself at this new decked out mall in no time!
