Compared to a similar market at Fuk WIng street (Sham Shui Po), this one is rather aggressive, no price tags, more bartering, in general a bit more expensive. I have seen tourist having a really hard time getting rid of hawkers and pleading 'leave me alone now' ... still, you can find a lot ... Also sneaker street is worth... More

this is where the ladies night market is. But even during the day, all the shops here are bargain. Walking around is best in Mongkok. The subway is very convenient but you should know which exit you will take because there are several. There are also so many nice eating places.

We went to browse here bought a few items cheap, we had friends with us who are local and spoke the language,this helped a lot. We where a bit worried about pick pockets as the markets were crowded, keep your wallet in your front pocket or your bag in front of you. Also visited what the locals call ladies/womens street...

When we sent (for the night market) not many westerners there. Perhaps due to the protests. Lots of Chinese stores and food you wont see anywhere else. Full of the sights and colours of China.

Sometimes travelling is about new experiences, even if they are not always pleasing. Mong Kok is a unique place. It's one of the most densely populated regions on the planet. The crowds are immense at some times. But that's a reason to visit. You really should see what this place is like. Mong Kok is also known as a rough... More

We took a walk in this area at night. It's very lively and interesting. It looks very authentic. It's quite different from the other areas that we visited in HK, here you will not find luxury brands or fancy restaurants. There are several food stalls, juice bars, a market and small shops. The vendors are not welcoming or nice and... More

Didn't like how crowded it was during the weekends, but yes there's a nice lou por pang store nearby, so i still made a trip there. Overall i find the place too messy and packed for my liking.

After visiting HK so many times, I have now finally gone to the markets in MongKok! I met some people at my hotel that were on their way here so I tagged along. Taking the MTR is super fast and easy from TST. Come out into a world of fun markets. We went past a great clothing side market, not... More

When visiting Hong Kong going to Mongkok is a must. There are a number of markets in Mongkok that you must visit and possibly the most famous is the Ladies Market. They are full of stalls selling designer brands, handbags, electronic goods as well as your general souvenirs. I found loads of cool little buys like chopsticks and wall hangings... More
