Elements shopping mall, located in the Kowloon MTR station in western Kowloon just upstairs from Airport Express going towards the airport, can compete for Hong Kong’s grandest. Going through the shopping mall, which I heard nothing about before arriving there, I was very pleasantly surprised. I’ve seen some nice malls in Hong Kong, some of them very up-market, yet Elements had a slightly different aroma of grandeur. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it’s an impressive shopping mall.
Separated into 5 zones to represent the 5 Chinese elements, they’ve got all the big luxury brands, a couple of grand movie theaters, an ice-ring, great restaurants and the best of every thing else you’d expect from a shopping mall. Three Sixty – BTW, which I’ve never heard of before either, is the kind of supermarket I’ve always wanted supermarkets to look like, but have never seen till that day. It looks, smells and feels just right. They had a near perfect Middle Eastern style Lamb Burger.
Since it was Chinese New Year there were tiger themed shows and Chinese dances playing during the entire duration of my stay in the area.
Watch some of the shows on video here :
If I were a bit closer, I’d consider going there more often, but as it’s far away I’ll let those impressions of the first visit linger.
