wtc (World Trade Center)
What we love…
- Formerly called The World Trade Centre, the wtc is a shopping mall located in Causeway Bay, that over looks the harbour. The building was originally developed in the 70's, and housed the Palace theater, a luxury cinema that showed American movies and catered to upper class clientele. In the 90's the theater was turned into a shopping complex and renamed the The World Trade Center. In 2006 the building got a splashy new facelift, and a trendy new name. It's now known as the 'wtc', and is home to mid-range fashion and lifestyle brands.
- The wtc mall is one of those places that shines from the inside out. The spacious floor plan and impressive glass walls and floors make the wtc a pleasure to shop in. The shop selection is somewhat limited, but, the stores they do have are well stocked.The brands you'll find at wtc are a collection of mid-range, mass-market shops such as bread n' butter, and BESS. You'll also find large branches of Uniqlo, agnes b., and Muji stores that occupy multiple floors.
- The wtc is connected to the Excelsior Hotel, and the restaurants on the upper levels cater to that crowd with several Michelin Guide recommended restaurants such as Hainan Shaoye, Kiriyaki Japanese Restaurant, Kung Tak Lam Shanghai Vegetarian, Shànghăi Lù Yáng Cūn Restaurant. If you're looking for eats that aren't so fancy try Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao, COVA Caffè, or pick up some sweets at Carousel Fine Cake and Pastries.
