Hong-Kong Lane, Pune Overview

Hong Kong Lane is a famous hub for street shopping in Pune. It is one of the places where shopaholics can indulge and manage to strike some good deals over a wide variety of products. The area where Hong-Kong Lane is located is close to several colleges and hostels in the city. It, therefore, is thronged by youngsters who want to buy stuff on a small budget. Having said that, others would also find this place quite useful because there is scope for bargaining and lots to buy from. People can also head to Hong Kong Lane to purchase souvenirs and gifts all priced at affordable rates, making it a perfect hub for bulk shopping.

What people would notice at Hong Kong Lane, the second they reach either of the entrances, is that the market place is situated on a lane in the middle of Fergusson College and Jangali Maharaj Road. It is always bustling with activities during its working hours. The stores are closely spaced, facing each other and leave nothing but a tiny lane for the buyers to walk through. During the peak hours, one really has to squeeze through this lane to make it to the shops, which are also small in size and pretty much stuffed with inexpensive, non-branded products. Because the place is always crowded, pickpockets are often around and it is advisable that visitors take care of their belongings.
