Causeway Bay is one of Hong Kong's major shopping districts. It includes the 13-storey Japanese department store Sogo, Times Square, and Hysan Place. There are also smaller malls such as World Trade Centre, Windsor House, Hang Lung Centre, Fashion Island, Fashion Walk, Lee Gardens and Lee Gardens Two. Causeway Bay is one of the most crowded areas in Hong Kong since it contains many trendy shops carrying both locally made fashion and products from Japan, Europe and the United States. As such, it is a popular social spot for young people. Many shops are open until well after midnight.
PMQ is a site with several layers of historical significance. It has been revitalised as a hub for creative and design industries. Almost 100 design and creative enterprises are stationed in PMQ.
