Park Lane: The ‘hood
Posted on

HONG KONG—This time around, I stayed at the Park Lane Hotel in Causeway Bay because I knew I only had one full day to shop.
Causeway is a place where shops close really late, like Ikea closes at 10:30 PM.
I’ve stayed at the Park Lane a couple of times before, and the trick is to get a room on the Executive Floor because some of the rooms on the lower floor are old.
Love this room.

Right underneath Park Lane is the dreamiest store in the world. If I could marry a store, I would marry Initial.


And right underneath Initial is the wasteland known as Ikea.

Perchance to dream

I like this dresser very much

Or have my favorite snack: fresh orange juice and Swedish meatballs to eat while standing, or to go

Also underneath the hotel is a deadly Häagen-Dazs store which had this promo

So James, Jiki and I shared four double scoops

Other nearby stops are the Sogo wasteland on the 6th floor
