We have found the best stationery stores and shops for essential school supplies in Hong Kong. As the kids get ready to head back to school, you need to stock up on school supplies – stationery, bags, lunch boxes and more.

As kids and families are enjoying summer while it lasts – be it checking in to family-friendly hotels, making a splash at Water World, staying cool at indoor playgrounds, we’re also getting ready for a new school year. It’s almost tradition for us to go on mini field-trips to stationery stores to stock up on brand new pencils, erasers, schools bags and more. Naturally, school supplies have a short lifespan of just about a year for our little ones (we don’t blame them…sometimes!) and with them growing so fast every year, we often need to go shoe shopping as well! Plus, given the new normal, we’re also stocking up on face masks, RATs, face shields and more. Bookmark this page to complete your school supplies shopping list!
