Where to buy cheap magazines in Hong Kong

18 August, 2011

This just in! The September issues are coming out! That’s right. Those super thick stacks of glossy indulgences are arriving. Mmmmmmm… I just know that they will be simply delicious to devour. But alas, it’s Hong Kong and the mags are sickeningly over-priced so you may only get to enjoy one, maybe two, at most. Here’s a little sassy girl’s secret. You can get ALL your faves at cover price right here in Hong Kong. You heard me. Vogue, Bazaar, In Style, Lucky, Elle, and Glamour to name a few… AT COVER PRICE! They even have the men’s mags, the lifestyle, fitness, and bridal ones you browse through but never purchase at Bookazine. Now, you really can have it all!

Where can this be, you ask? The Fleet Arcade at Fenwick Pier. There is a small bookshop on the second floor in the corner that stocks all your must-read beauty books. While the location itself is far from fabulous, the bookshop is filled with all the glamour you crave. To get to this magic magazine oasis just save this map and show it to your taxi driver.

There are a few tricks you need to know to help you on your way. Be sure to bring a large canvas tote to haul your finds. Also, best to come stacked with cash because they don’t accept plastic here. The clerk will convert all of the U.S. prices listed on the covers to Hong Kong dollars at the register.  You may want to call ahead of time because if a ship is in port, they may be closed to the public.

It may be in a strange location and involve a bit of pre-planning, but it is all worth it. I make two trips a year to load up on the March and September issues and then I slowly read them, again and again, making them last as long as possible!

Happy Reading!

Fleet Arcade, Naxos Books and Video, Fenwick Pier, 1 Lung King Street, Admiralty, 2511 3611

Opening Hours: 10am-6pm
