Great local street food, pedestrian streets and markets available within few hundred meters from the Mongkok MTR station. Only negative aspect, beware of pick-pockets since the area is one (if not the) most crowded place on earth. Worth a walk for the experience/living.

I love Mongkok and stay at the Cordis that's part of the Langham Place shopping centre there. You walk out into the street and it's always busy. The street market is interesting. I used to pick up some gifts there, but the last couple of times I haven't bought anything there. Loads of shops for everything you need.

This is said to be most populated part of the world when it comes to number of people per square km and as soon you get out from MTR you will soon realize it's true. There are plenty of shops too, stating from electronics, clothes, medicine to plenty of food options. Very busy at night too.

Unfortunately thousands upon thousands of mainlanders also visited with the hope of filling their suitcase with local products (not same quality in mainland China).....I do not enjoy these shoulder-shoulder crowds in the least. Did not see anything I felt tempted to buy....was rather craving to be inside an aircon shop, running from the stifling humidity and heat.

You want decent shopping spot?! Go to Mongkok. That is the answer I got from most locals I asked about best shopping spots in HK. From ladies market, where you can get good deals, to the main well known brands, like H&M etc. Don't forget to pop up at Bonjour; crazy discounts on perfumes and cosmetics. There are also few...

Know your price first before buying. This place have too much bargain items! Everything you want to buy is already here! Just my advice based thru experience, buy your stuff on stores located on the buildings. Some shops on the tents and kiosks will start you up on a high price and will start negotiating for your wanted price. Such... More

Shopping in Hong Kong is always fun, especially for phones or cameras. Try out the camera just bought to capture the hustle and bustle could be real fun.

It is a dynamic area for shopping lovers. Also, compared to other places, massage is relatively cheaper in Mongkok area.

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.
