For Apple crazed fans in Hong Kong, their dreams will come true when its first Apple flagship store open on September 24th in the International Financial Centre in Central.

Most people know that if you want Apple products, Hong Kong is one of the cheapest places to get them. Even people from China prefer to get Apple products there. This is because there is no sales tax. Additionally the price in Hong Kong is roughly the same as America since the HKD$ is pegged to the USD$.

A friend from Hong Kong is indeed an Apple fanatic and proudly displays his collection of products on a table. One time, we were at a restaurant in Sanlitun Village and his head was surrounded by the bright illuminated Apple sign, like a kind of Apple angel. He will likely be one of crowd eagerly lining up in front of the new flagship store, come open day.
