    Moving from UK to HK - Shipping - What should I bring that you can't get in HK?

    Hi everyone
    I'll be moving to HK soon for a job with my girlfriend coming too. I get a relocation package, but will probably have some spare space, so wanted to know if there were things I should definitely bring where:

    a) you can't get in HK (or is extra expensive in HK)
    b) things from the UK that have a premium on them in HK that could be sold (someone I knew moved to Bermuda and filled the container with UK tinned goods - baked beans etc - and made quite a lot of money!)

    Many Thanks

    fill up your suitcase with tins of baked beans, you'll be a rich man when you arrive.

    Or spreadable butter.

    Double the price here and a third the weight.

    Gum, reasonably priced red wine/craft beer, pasta, shoes if you're larger than size 10, mid-range clothing/work clothes, fresh roasted coffee beans (insanely expensive here), water filter, certain small appliances and electronics can be more expensive here. . .

    While Hong Kong has a good assortment of all kinds of international foods in normal times, one thing certainly missing is bakewell tarts.
