Go to Stanley Street is known for reasonably priced photographic equipment. Hollywood Road winds above the Central business district and is Hong Kong's antiques row. Farther west towards Sheung Wan is a bustle of sidewalk hawkers on Central's stepped "ladder" streets.
Western District

You can visit the Hong Kong Central district where you will find old world markets and designer boutiques. Visit The Galleria, Prince's Building and the Alexander House and the Pacific Mall. These are the main shopping centres, with designers shops etc. Go to Li Yuen Street East and West for stalls which sell expensive to inexpensive merchandise.

Western Market in Sheung Wan is a handsomely renovated Edwardian building filled with Chinese handicraft stores and fabric shops. It is situated at the corner of Connaught Road and Morrison Street, Sheung Wan. The area to the west is famous for its small Chinese-style shops selling dried seafood and medicinal herbs.

Cat Street bazaar is best known for stalls and shops selling antiques, such as watches, old coins and stone carvings. The area is also home to many interesting Chinese herbal medicine stores.

Admiralty too is famous for its brand-name luxury goods.
Pacific Place, one of Hong Kong's most popular malls, is the ideal place to go in this area. You'll find perfect gift ideas within its 130-plus outlets, including Marks & Spencer, Lane Crawford, Seibu and top designer labels. Pacific Place is connected to the Admiralty MTR Station.

I hope I have been of some assistance to you :D

^^ The places you mentioned above are mostly branded goods stores right? Are there any places which are cheap? I am a student so I have limited cash to burn :)

How expensive is the food and getting around the place? I will be there for 3 days, so I was wondering how much cash to carry for such small expenses.
