Should you shop in Hong Kong?

There used to be a time when products in Hong Kong were REALLY cheap and it's the number one destination for shoppers. However, since Hong Kong was turned over to China, their products became similarly priced to the products here. Though I know that there are still some cheap products floating around in Hong Kong, I just don't know where to find them. I tried comparing some of the products I found in Mongkok to those being sold locally and there's really not that much price difference. So if you add your plane fare plus hotel accommodation, the slightly lower price doesn't really justify traveling to Hong Kong.

Of course, there are still some products that are much cheaper there such as electronics but if you're just going to buy clothing and RTWs, it's better to just go to Divisoria.
