Question about shipping souvenir from Hong Kong to US?

Jump to last reply

This is kinda of a dumb question but my sister is considering buying a small bird cage from Yuen Po Street Bird Garden and was wondering how easy it would be to mail back to the US from Hong Kong?

We will be passing through Hong Kong for a day and a half on the way to Southeast Asia. We previously visited Hong Kong few years ago and she thought about buying a small bird cage but did not because we did not have room to bring it with back with us.

Are there any restrictions to shipping a bird cage because of avian flu? I doubt there would be but I wanted to be sure.

Also since we don't usually ship gifts even from the US we were wondering how easy it would be do this at the post office and if it would be easy to find someone that speaks English. Would any post office be OK or do we need to go to the central post office? We will probably be staying in Causeway Bay near Times Square.

I assume we can we buy a small box and other packaging materials like tape and tissue paper at the post office?

Is there UPS or Fed Ex or something similar in Hong Kong that would be easier than the post office?

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
