Hong Kong Information

Most international magazines are available in Hong Kong and several Asian focused editions are published here.  If you cannot do without your monthly Architectural Digest or Harper's & Queen,  most of the larger bookstores, such as Demock's in Prince's Building, and expatriate orientated news stands, such as the one on Staunton Street in Soho, carry the international glossies but at a high price.  It may well be worth subscribing internationally, and subscribing generally is more economical.
