“bask in the madness”

i love the mongkok area, simply because there are things to see and do. Shopping for electronics and camping stuff are good and sometime you can get a very good deal. (Must bargain)

“The Real Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Apparently this place used to be the place where Westerners did not travel. That is no longer the case because it is a bustling vibrant place with a massive night market and sights and sounds which overwhelm the senses. Both times I have been on Hong Kong I have stayed in Mong Kok and I will not hesitate to do so again.
However, try not to wonder too far away from the main strips because that is when you do discover the seedier side of Hong Kong, though remember that this is a very conservative city so even though it may be seedy, it is still safe.

“Real Hong Kong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Staying at Langham Place provided us with an opportunity to move in and around Mongkok easily. It is extremely busy and often felt that we were moving against the crowd but it is a culturally rich experience that stays with you will after you have departed. We enjoyed wandering in and out of the stores at street level and in the shopping centres as well as the Ladies Market. You need to do your homework (before you arrive) to find the reputable IT / camera retailers as there are so many to choose from.

“CROWDED BUT FUN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I was happy to visit this very busy shopping area. I was fortunate to have a Chinese girlfriend who did all the buying....only occasionally did she make me move on or hang back so as not to influence the negotiations.

“anything - here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

You can find everything here - cheapest way to stay in Hong Kong and don't be afraid of a lot of Chinese people. They understand you and help you if you want to find something)))
