My partner and I really enjoyed walking through Mongkok and enjoying the markets they had there down the Main Street - we didn't see anything worth buying but they had a lot of stalls selling everything and everything from clothing to souvenirs. Not far from these markets they had dedicated streets selling things such as goldfish in small plastic bags... More

It was clean, tidy, central to our needs and had very helpful staff. Exploring the shops, markets and food in the area was great fun. Their public transport sytem is wonderful, you need an... More

Predominantly looking for tech and good shoes. every second store seems to sell Nike and all the prices were the same so we kept walking and looking. The camera gear I could get cheaper on eBay and delivered to my door back home. At the prices they were quoting, either my haggling skills suck or they are living in la-la... More

I've tried several places in Hong kong to taste different kind of street food in Hong Kong. And I can say that you can find the best street food at the 'Temple street' in Yaumatei! Besides you can taste the authentic culture of Hong Kong, you can also taste the best wok street foods here. I would say, if you're... More

If one is looking for photography-related equipment like lenses and camera bodies - this is the place! Trooping from one store to another looking for the best prices is fun! Also, there are food stalls tucked into back alleys - the food looked delicious but we didn't try it. Sad, we should have. Shoes are also sold at a discount... More

People everywhere. Great shopping and atmosphere. Who wants to be in New York when Hong Kong is this great? This is nothing for people that like calm and relax on the country side. Take a look at Mongkok and how it really looks here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_l6Q1aHGm8

Best place to do shopping in malls, shops and market streets. Make sure you're open minded while shopping! ;) There can be "aggressive" salesmen but hey, they are just doing their work! Easy to come by metro and there's nothing you can't find here! Everything for everyone - ladies market, sneaker street, shopping center Langham Place ( VERY BIG ONE!... More
