Mongkok is a MUST go place for all travellers. Those who want to make full use of a day should start with Birds Street. Get off from MTR Station, Prince Edward and just 10 minutes walk, you can find Yuen Po Street Bird Garden where you can find a traditional-style garden with stalls selling beautiful songbirds and hand-crafted birdcages.

Local Street food and some stall that selling fake brand cloths. Short and small street with many local people. The street will be slightly less people after 10pm and started at 4pm.

Almost everything was there. Jewelry shops, clothes, shoes, watches, electronics etc. There were lots of people and there were places that felt a bit congested. It was easy to get there. We just took mtr and got off at mongkok station. Lots of eateries. I was able to buy mostly cosmetics, body lotion, and soaps.

Mongkok. You can get lost or get separated from your friends easily here. I went with my little sister (10 years old) and I had to hold her hands the entire time to make sure that she doesn't go off randomly. You will not be able to find your kid if they're lost here. :P Lots of street foot stores... More

Mongkok is crazy! There are people everywhere, which means there are plenty of things to do and see. Make sure you visit the Ladies Markets.

If you like markets, then this is a must see. Unfortunately most of the stall sell very similar touristy type of items so there isn't much to see after 30 minutes. Make sure to go at night when there's a real market atmosphere, but the stalls are a bit tight so it's not always easy to walk around.

People and people everywhere.Must be one of the busiest and congested shopping area in the world, especially at night. Neon lights light up the street and shops. The streets are full of restaurants and shops where you can almost purchase anything you want. Can be access from anywhere in Hong Kong by bus or MTR or walking along Nathan Road.... More

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.
