Hong Kong’s diverse landscape spans towering skyscrapers, lush mountains and expansive waterfronts — fueling a natural demand for getting out in nature and moving about. There really is no shortage of athletic and outdoor activities in Hong Kong, so it’s no wonder the vibrant city has an abundance of sportswear shops. Thanks to the Quality Tourism Services (QTS) Scheme it’s easier than ever to narrow down the shops that are worth your time. Here are the best accredited QTS merchants that sell activewear, athleisure and outdoor apparel for every occasion.
