My wife and I did the Big Bus Tour, excellent. The last stop we used was to exit at Temple Street. The market was just setting up, it stretches much further than just Temple Street. So we stopped at a stall and had food. Not that my wife was keen an any way. The food was great, washed down with... More

Want to buy souvenirs, little gifts or handbags? Wander through the Temple St Markets at night for an evening of bargaining and cajoling. This is like an Olympic sport to the stall holders, so don't hold back. They look almost disappointed if you don't try hard enough. Once you have finished perusing the main central walkway, be sure to slip... More

In our opinion, not a patch on the Mong Kok markets. Nowhere near as big. Gets underway about 6.00pm. Most probably would not visit again. "Ladies of the night" readily available.

Actually, there are several old but restored temples on Temple Street bordering Market Street on the north-western side from the Temple Street Market. Taking a 3 minute walk to the park adjacent to the temples, visitors can find many fortune teller stalls and hawker stalls selling sex toys, cheap travel accessories, and Tibetan handicrafts, etc. surrounding the carpark. The fortune... More

Hot items this season are: USB sticks in all kinds of plastic figurines, 29HKD for one or get 5 for 100. There is no way you can quickly check if those really hold 8 or 16GB and if they work / what transfer speed they have ... nice souvenir, might not work. There of course endless 'i love HK' t-shirts... More

Went along for a visit and was not overly impressed. All the stalls seemed to have the same stuff. Not a great variety really. Would have expected better.

Listed as one of the places to visit in Hong Kong - we were very disappointed with what the place had to offer. Average street market stall selling poor grade items.

As with several other night markets in Hong Kong, this place is crowded and busy and crammed with market stalls selling all sorts of goods from Jade, Chinese paintings and clothing, as well as handbags and watches. However i was disappointed by the quality of items and actually purchased nothing on my visit. If you do decide to buy something... More

... as I thought it would be. It has gotten seedy over the years. Yes, thee are a lot of sex stores and adult mag stands. Beware if going with kids. The main section does have some good souvenirs stuff. Barter fro prices if you find something you like. The market just didn't have the excitement as other street markets... More
