Location of outdoor supply store in HK

Apologies if I am posting this in the wrong section...

I'm wondering if any cycle tourers are familiar with Hong Kong - in particular, the availability of camping/outdoor equipment? I have looked on this forum and Google and not had much luck.

I will start a bicycle tour this year from HK (into China). I've thought it may be more convenient to buy sleeping bag / cooker / tent etc from a big specialty store in HK than bring it with me from abroad.

If anybody knows of the name/address of a large REI-type outdoor store in Hong Kong which is accessable using the local underground subway I'd really appreciate it.

Many thanks,

Matt

When I lived in Hong Kong a number of years ago there were only a couple of places that carried this type of equipment and I don't remember the names. Try finding the Hong Kong Trade and Development web site and search there. Also, I believe there are a number of "Hiking Clubs" that you might be able to find on the web. They will probably all be in Chinese, so have a friend help you out.
