Hong Kong's answer to New York's 5th Avenue and London's King's Road are the first few blocks of Chater Road, Des Voeux Road Central, and Queen's Road Central (the thoroughfares that stretch west from Statue Square). Most high-end designers have boutiques in über-posh shopping centers like the Landmark or Alexandra House. A stone's throw away, but at the other end of the income scale, are Li Yuen Street East and Li Yuen Street. Known as the Lanes, they're packed with stalls selling cheap cheongsams (sexy silk dresses with Mandarin collars), phone cases, backpacks, and Hello Kitty merchandise. On the south side of Queen's Road is steep Pottinger Street, a haberdasher's dream.
