HiStreet is a mobile application based in Hong Kong. We're here to help you find shops and other physical businesses by presenting the information you need in an easy-to-use interface.

=> What’s with the name “HiStreet”?
Our name is a friendly play on “High Street”, a common street name usually packed with shops. We thought “hi” and a wave would sum up our company vision and culture.
We are building our database by manually collecting data on the streets. Our Street Team checks every street, every building and every floor for retail businesses. The types of businesses you can find include:
• Fashion & Beauty
Our team is energetic and small, which means everyone is pretty close. Even though our part-timers and interns work mostly on their own accounts all over Hong Kong, we love to get everyone together to eat and explore the best places in town. Having fun is important to us!
