HONG KONG ( TheStreet) -- Canton Road sounds like the name of a commercial hub in old southern China before it was renamed Guangdong and the roads began turning into flyovers. You could imagine people crowding around for steaming pork buns, squawking chickens and chilling chats with fortunetellers.Canton Road is in Hong Kong, a reservoir of Cantonese culture with an overlay of British laws and city planning. But most of the people who shop there come from mainland China. They throng the outlets of Burberry (BRBY.L), Christian Dior (CDI.PA), Gucci (GUCG) and Louis Vuitton (MC.PA). It's not just window-shopping.
