This review is quite late. Mongkok is a great place where you can do all your shopping here night or day but it usually gets crowded. The Mongkok night market is very popular to tourists and locals. I shop here for small souvenir items like T-shirts, keychains, etc. Always be on the guard with all your belongings, especially wallet and... More

Again, locals avoid going there because overcrowded with mainlanders and pollution is real bad there. MK is full of street stalls and many things for all walks of life. Good for cheap stuff but quality is as expected. Beware of pickpockets and many lower class people make their living there. Many subdivided flats and cheap motels and prostitutes and brothels....

The financial system of hk is not run or owned by foreigners or expats. It's run by hong Kongers and has been for over 50 years.You don't have the exclusivity to wealth, comfort or development. Contrary to your ignorant thinking.

I love this place so much I am trying to work out how to get an internship here. Great morning food markets that are used by the locals including seamstresses and chicken stalls. The main street is buzzing at night. You can get anything you want any time of the day. Except the morning. Hong Kongers are not morning people...

Way more 'local' than Central, in an Asian sort of way... Central is expat, financial, euro-restaurants etc. which is great but for that Asian feel, the Kowloon side, Mongkok especially, is the place to experience. I usually stay in Central, CWB or TST but will make my way to Mongkok for a meal or 2 and some market shopping for... More

I decided to venture in the streets on Mongkok, but during the day first, just to because I wanted to see what all the fuss was all about regrading the "riots" in the streets. This was such an enriching experience to see all the younger locals standing tall for what they believe in and all that done extremely peacefully! The... More

We decided to brave it out and go to Mongkok's famous "ladies market" and "sneaker street" today and unintentionally walked right in the middle of the protests! All well and good though, we didn't feel our safety was compromised in any way. There were lots of police presence and nothing was happening. Maybe they were on a lunch break😊 Anyhow,... More

This is not not a place full of delicious food but also a young free will with Yellow umbrella. Come take a look and enjoy the amazing food hiding in the streets and alleys in 旺角 ~

We don't really want to buy anything, but we so enjoyed on seeing lots of merchadising on display here and there. We ended up bought food like pancake and fruits though.

Mongkok is the poor relation compared to Tsim Tsa Shui the malls are less glamorous and the shops more everyday an interesting walk during the day not sure whether I would venture too far in the night. Beware of the fake monks and the tacky fake designer goods. Not a place I would like to stay so beware as some... More
