Understandable, this is a bird market and not an aviary but still it was sad to see some of the birds cramped in small cages. Still, an interesting sight with a variety of feathery creatures and their foods (including bags with live locust). Wish it would be a little more bird friendly though.

Where else? This was fascinating and the birds sadly in small cages but obviously prized. Clearly not enough meat on them for eating! Old men were tolerant of tourists gazing at them.

Seeing so many birds in such tiny spaces is appalling. Each one had at most a small decorative cage as its home while many shared only slightly bigger cages with up to dozens of other birds. Some were in narrow boxes barely taller than themselves. Very few were able to shelter themselves from sunlight. I saw many birds with overgrown... More

I'm a bird owner and this appealed to me. I took Uber taxi from my hotel. It was a 10 minute ride. The vendors for all things "birdy" are there. The caged birds are in the thousands and while I'm not a fan of small cages, all of the birds appeared well cared for, clean cages and plenty of food,... More

Its now called the bird garden, not the bird market, and its at the end of the flower market street. Fun to see all the birds of owners socializing as well as see some exotic varieties!

The bird garden is about it 10 minute walk from the metro. I walked through the flower district which was very appealing. You will know you are close when you start to hear happy cheeping to your left. There were not many vendors in the bird garden. The birds seemed very happy and well cared for. Granted, many were in... More

I bought a copy of the Lonely Planet Guide to Hong Kong and we spent a very interesting couple of hours taking a walk through Bird Garden and the markets after. It was lovely to see some of the older residents with their caged birds, but surprising to see so many small birds in small cages on sale. The grasshoppers... More

I was very intrigued, an area exclusively where you can buy bird cages, bird food (live bait like worms), and a variety of birds for sale a view! A place to see like no other for a cultural experience.

If you're going to be in the Mong Kok area anyway, then do drop in on the garden just to see the vareity of birds and people, but this is not a site that is worthy of a dedicated trip.

Some may not like the 'Bird Garden' or 'Bird Market' in Kowloon's Yuen Po Street as there are lots of caged birds some of which appear to be in poor conditions and less than happy. It can also be a bit smelly but that goes for many places in Asia and to me is all a key part of a... More

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
