Mong Kok (Mongkok) is an area in western Kowloon - characterized by mixture of old and new multi-level buildings - famous for retail shopping, restaurants, and bars, nightclubs, massage parlors. In contrast with other areas in HK that were affected by changes brought about by economic development and urban transformation, Mongkok was able to preserve an array of street markets,... More

Mong Kok is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, the most scenic and interesting among them are the flower market, goldfish street and bird market. Also in this neighborhood is Ladies Market - a street market filled with stalls selling electronic goods,

When the person first named this area as Mongkok(Prosperous corner- in Chinese direct meaning),he did not awear that this name just suits this area. From 10 o'clock in the morning to 9 o'clock at night the entire area is jammed with people(many are tourists). On the two sides of Nathan Road, you can find watch shops,gold and jewery shops, restaurants,banks... More

The shopping here is fantastic. Besides Ladies Market, (a night market along Tung Choi Street, Mong Kok MTR station), there are also lots of eateries and electronic shops in the parallel streets. The range of items at Ladies Market is better than Temple Street Night Market... But be prepared to bargain hard at both places; start from 50% of the... More

I used to live in Hong Kong (2007-2008) and still visit often on business trips and so have stayed in and visited Mongkok on numerous occasions over the last 7 years. It is a fascinating area of Kowloon and has some very interesting streets that offer everything from good shopping, to great photographs and memorable cultural experiences. It is a... More

We were there in October 2014 when Beijing's unpopular decision sparked massive protests which blocked roads and several modes of transportation. Yes, we were inconvenienced and we had to walk more than necessary to get to the nearest MTR but it was a unique experience. How many people who have visited Hong Kong can claim that they mingled among protesters... More

Mongkok has everything. I love the cheap clothes in Fayuen St and the souvenirs at Ladies Market (got 3 neckties for $10 didn't even have to haggle). There are plenty of restaurants around. There's the Langham mall and Grand Century mall (renovation will be completed Dec 2014). I window shop around TST and Causeway Bay, but always end up buying... More

Night markets here are fantastic. More lively at night. Of course, being a touristy place, you have to bargain the prices and you will be surprised at the amount you can bargain.
