The markets are nothing spectacular but fun seeing quirky items and cheap fakes. But be prepared to haggle - start at 25% the price quoted!

You can find a lot of knock off bags, watches, toys and a much more. The prices are real high at first. My advice. HAGGLE, HAGGLE AND HAGGLE. Give them 50% of what they initially offer. If they don't accept it, walk away. This works for me most of the time.

The shopping area of Mong Kok is unique in its kind. Among skyscrapers of finest architecture there lies this marvelous district.

Due to the lag of space pavements are... More

There's so much to buy, different streets selling different products. Look closely for a good deal! Shopping centers can be found by entering air conditioned lobbies, they normally extend upwards, nice to go in for a cooling off as air conditioners are usually on full blast!

True spirit of HK - endless mass of people, neon lights, markets, shopping malls.. The amount of details to turn your eyes into... More
