Prada Outlet in Hong Kong (Directions + Exclusive Photos)
My first pilgrimage to the legendary Prada Outlet in Hong Kong was about four years ago, on a rainy summer day. After an hour of hopelessly walking in all the wrong directions, I was ready to give up. And then – like a miraculous apparition that has deemed me worthy – it magically appeared.
Formally called ‘Space,’ this legendary outlet is hard to find (to say the least). The façade is nothing like a Prada store, and if you don’t look closely, you will miss it, like I almost did.
My saviour was a fabulous gay man sauntering about and carrying a Prada shopping bag. I immediately approached him. He spoke no English, but he spoke Prada. I simply pointed at his paper bag, he understood what I was looking for, and he showed me the way.
To say that the selection here is ‘amazing’ would be a understatement. I’ve been to a number of designer discount outlets in Europe, but this was the only store to ever make jaw drop. There were literally thousands of off-season Prada bags, shoes, clothes, and accessories here, all at least 40% less than retail. That’s right – I said at least. Some of the merchandise are marked 95% off, they might as well be free. You'll also find a lot of discounted Miu Miu and Helmut Lang items.
The ‘Space’ Prada Outlet is about a 20 minute taxi ride from Hong Kong Central. The easiest way to get there is to hail a cab and simply ask to be taken to ‘South Horizons.’ Better yet, ask your hotel concierge to write the address (below) in Chinese so you can show it to your cabbie. Expect to pay about 200 HKD if you’re coming from Tsim Sha Tsui – a little steep, but worth every penny because of all the discounts you’ll get on luscious Prada items.
I have heard that you can also take a bus. Ask your hotel to give you a copy of the Hong Kong Citybus Guide. The bus fare to the South Horizons Bus Terminal is less than HKD7.00 (one-way) from the following stations:
Central / Exchange Square (Citybus 590)
Admiralty Bus Station (Citybus 590A)
Causeway Bay / Moreton Terrace) (Citybus 592)
This Prada-owned and operated outlet is tucked in one of Hong Kong's high end residential areas, so you don’t need to worry about the usual traffic and shopping crowd. Here’s the complete address:
