The Oxford Street of Hong Kong. Bright, glitzy, mainly overpriced, but a good road to gain access to all the smaller side roads, where the best eateries and small good value shops are found. The worst part about walking along Nathan Road is the constant (and I mean non-stop) approaches of various dodge vendors offering everything from Rolex watches and... More

Nathan Road is full of restaurants and stores selling all kinds of merchandise. There is a mix of high quality, high fashion and cheap knock offs. It is also the entrance to Kowloon Park which has cleverly painted steps leading up to it.

I have walked up and down this street since 1965. From the water front then, to now, Nathan road starts now "inland". It has always been busy but it is evolving. The shops have gone progressively upmarket and increasing, it is what the mainland Chinese buy that dominate the nature of the shops. Nevertheless, it is a spectacle and much... More

A must visit in TST, Nathan Road is at the heart of the pulse of Kowloon. Restaurants, shops, people everywhere. A stroll up/down both sides and a wander into the side streets will keep you interested in all of what Hong Kong has to offer.

Nathan Road is good for strolling about, while taking in the variegated and tumultuous Kowloon experience. Herds of dissimilar sheeple from around the world, with a common denominator that many are seemingly just ready to be taken advantage of. Generally easy access to MTR and public buses. Haven't bought anything on Nathan Road in a couple of decades. Back in... More

The full length of Nathan Road which is well placed in Kowloon with good hotels, restaurants and bars is an excellent choice of location in Hong Kong. Plenty of things to do and an interesting market area offering good buys and cheap eateries.

When in HK must walk along Nathan Rd from TST up to Mong Kok its 2kms of basically what HK Kowloon side is all about and don't be afraid to venture into the off streets and alley ways its where the better choices of food and local shops hide.

Nathan road is the most crowded and longest road in Kowloon island, hone kong. If you are lost somewhere, just found Nathan road, you can find any transportation such as MTR or bus to get to somewhere you want to go.

I am so glad we research about custom clothing before venturing out to shop on Nathan Road. There are many custom tailors and jewelry stores so I would suggest checking out reviews and comments.

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.
