Sometimes the price of books in Hong Kong is almost beyond belief:
Jamie's Ministry of Food
Page One, Kowloon Tong HK$474 Cover Price £25.00 HK$292 Amazon.co.uk* (shipped to Hong Kong) £17.97 HK$210 Typical UK bookstore price £12.50 HK$146
£1 = HK$11.68
* Amazon price is £9.99, plus a delivery charge of £7.98 (£4.99 per shipment plus £2.99 per item)
So the price in Page One is more than three times the price you would typically pay in a UK bookstore, and 60% higher than the cover price.
Of course, if you purchase multiple items from Amazon, you could split the shipment charge across all of them, making the books even cheaper.
My last delivery from Amazon took 6 days.
