Mongkok is a heaven for shoppers. All stuffs from souvieners to electronics are available here. U just have to bargain for the price. If they say its 500 dollars its price is just 50 dollars. Never mind their pleas and sweet talk just stick to that 50 dollars and u can get it finally. Not a great place to buy... More

We caught the MTR through the tunnel to Mongkok, to inquire about 'pirated' DVD's (an unsuccessful exercise) However whilst we were there the markets set up and 'what fun' it was just as I remembered Hong Kong, Many years ago! Lots of bartering, followed by lots of buying. A real 'cultural experience'

We only had time and energy to visit the Ladies Market but should have taken the kids to the animal market instead. After reading some reviews we made sure to visit around 12:30pm to avoid night crowds and it was still busy enough - I would hate to see at night. We found the same crappy products repeated throughout the... More

Mongkok is really calling out to shoppers! At Sai Yeung Choi Street South, the various buildings often have retail units at the high storeys (need to take lift). Eateries abound so you won't go hungry. Tung Choi Street is more famously known for the Ladies' Market. Just about anything can be bought there. Fa Yuen Street, like the above 2... More

Mongkok is heaven for people who love street shopping. You get an unlimited variety of clothes, bags, accessories and what not! The only thing is you need to bargain a lot with the shop keeper by entering your desired price on their calculator( This is for foreigners who do not know numbers in Mandarin)!

I live in the Tsim Yau Mong district so I'm a little bias about Mong Kok. This is the real Hong Kong. Away from the glitz of the Island, Mong Kok has a grungy element. The old apartment buildings sit alongside new shopping malls such as Langham Place. The shopping is the main draw. Sneaker Street and the Ladies Market... More

Mongkok is one of the 'tourists" area in HK; so expect the many things associated with tourist areas ie vibrant, lots of choices in food/shopping & of course; higher prices. Generally, this is a nice place to stay & visit. Get soaked into the vibrant atmosphere here. There are many shops/restaurants - so you have many choices & conveniences. Wherever... More

Mongkok is the part of the city that never sleeps. All shops are open until very late and a lot of bargains can be done there. Even if you don't want to shop, you can go there to taste some streetfood or just enjoy the crowd! (it's very busy)

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
