Temple street night market is the big night market on Kowloon side. It extends from Temple Street area down Shanghai Street. The area is filled street stalls. There are various fortune tellers by different method. I like the one with the bird picking up your fortune for you. Most of the stalls sell clothes, bags, gadgets which seem to replicate... More

The Temple Street Night Market was a good experience. Much more pleasant to shop at night time due to the temperature than during the day. Good deals to be had. We also had dinner in the vicinity. So you can shop, grab a bargain & dine also. Worth a visit.

This is a couple of blocks of stalls all selling the same things, tshirts, electronics etc. In my opinion it is just not worth the hassle getting there or buying anything. It is a shame because years ago this was a fun vibrant place to visit; not now.

You'll get a lot of value for money electronics in this area. Very good people who know reasonable English. If there's a place in HK that's giving you bang for the buck, this is the one. I traded my Nikon D3100 for Canon 100D quite comfortably here and got a good deal. Some bundle offers too were quite enticing. A... More

If you have a spare evening in Hong Kong, head to the night market. Yes, some of it is cheap tat and not worth even looking at, but you can pick up some cool items, such as first editions of Mao's quotations, printed baggy trousers, decorated chopsticks, cheap iPad cases, silk covered notebooks etc. Even if you don't want to...

If it's near your hotel it's worth visiting. Cheap goods are available and snacks are plentiful. I was expecting more shops and stands, but you could easily spend 30 min to an hour depending on your interest.

Everyone told me to go to the great "night market" on Temple Street. Wow, what a disappointment. I was expecting things like local arts and crafts, but it was just a bunch of junk -- such as knock off handbags, t-shirts, scarves made in India, and "jade" jewelry. Yes, there are some cheap souvenirs there, but nothing of great value.... More

We last visited 4 years ago, but this time we were disappointed. We had come from Kota Kinabalu and had not bought much in their Sunday Market, saving ourselves for HK. The copy sunglasses etc were of a far better quality and cheaper in Kota Kinabalu than in Temple Street. The majority of the goods in Temple Street were "look... More

Unfortunately, this was nothing like the night markets in Bangkok, Chang Mai, Dakar, and Marrakesh where you can find handmade, local (not mass produced) treasures. Stall owners are refreshingly low-pressure, in fact, they don't pay too much attention to you until you approach them but they also make you feel as though you are bothering them when trying to ask...

I've not been for over 15years so it was nice to go back but ended up feeling a bit disappointed - food is really not that good and totally overpriced to rip off tourists. The market itself has everything you would expect from an Asian night market - what stands out is the stretch with the palm readers. Didn't have... More
