We were looking for souvenirs and gifts to take home - all we found were piles of plastic junk and polyester "silk". It was a very humid day and the Saturday crowds didn't help our mood and a very average, rather bland lunch in a local noodle bar did nothing to improve our view of this rather tired and dated...

There are lots of little markets here including the famous Ladies Market. If you have shopped at Bangkok, you may not be all that impressed with what’s on offer. You will have to bargain heavy to get a fair price. There are plenty of street food options available. But if you prefer a restaurant setting with home-style dishes; check out... More

if you are up for the challenge of navigating Mongkok and you are not afraid of crowds, spend evening at Mongkok where you can pursue bargains in the market place, excite your taste buds (i wondered into place that serve toad/frog (i don't know) claypot rice - which the big hairy bikers also made a pit stop at) and enjoy...

Better by night, it is comparable to Time Square in New York, or Picadilly in London, or Champs Élysées in Paris. Only more people, indescribable. Fun. But beware of pickpockets

You can shop, people watch, and have some great food all within Mong Kok. Love to take my camera and walk through Mong Kok taking pictures of the people, and all the neon signs that are everywhere in this very busy area of HK. Markets are just about everywhere you turn in Mong Kok, as well as sections of this... More

Famous attraction not only for tourists but also for locals. Yes, crowded and noisy especially during night time. Famous spots are Sneakers Street where you can find many shoes outlets, and its famous Ladies Market where you can buy HKG souvenirs. Restaurants are supposed to be located inside the buildings, please try to explore. Chain fast foods like McD, KFC,... More

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
