There is something to buy for anyone in Mongkok! This shopping district caters to all sorts, from push cart vendors to shopping mall brands. There is plenty of food along the road and some restaurants have toilet facilities. It is not surprising if you were to get lost in the maze of streets, look up to get your bearings as... More

We were surprised that there is one place in Hongkong that won't sleep. There were street revelries & night markets. We were so amazed with our purchases but yet their prices were still a bit high & got no difference with those items found in Divisoria or Tubtuban. What made them apart was that this place is full of energy.... More

Loved how accessible,and safe it felt. There was just so much to observe that was completely different to Adelaide. It really felt a world away from Central but somehow more genuine. People were so busy and seemed cheerful.

The real centre of Hong Kong for locals: shopping (especially the back streets, many of them), people watching, all sort of activities, and for tourists this is the best place to sample local life.

From Langham Place to Ladies' Market, there is something for everyone. As a destination, I tend not to go here, especially on weekends as it is just far too rammed with locals and tourists. However, what I did enjoy this time round was going to the Goldfish Street (Tung Choi Street) by Bute Street where you can see a number... More

I had been to Mongkok Ladies Market many times but this time I took a friend who had never been. We had a great time at the market , both of us love to bargain. We love the hustle and bustle of the ladies market even though many of the stalls sell similar things. Sneaker Street just near the Ladies... 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.
