Mongkok is a great area in HK which has a lot of restaurants and shops. With the Ladies Market, Gold Fish Street, as well as the newer mall Langham Place you could easily spend a full day here.

There's not much "attractions" in Mongkok but a trip to HK without going to Mongkok is a sin!

Yes, you can get almost everything under the sun in Mongkok. You just have to know which street to find it in. Rated the world's highest density area, it is not difficult to see why. Just try to stroll down Fa Yuen street or Tung Choi street during rush hour and you will be swept along with the crowds. Definitely an experience not found elsewhere! Shopping here is good and there are plenty of good eats to be had. Just do your research and you can't go wrong. Actually, just about any HK char chan teng has above average fare and you really can't go very wrong. Take your time to walk around and don't worry about shops closing early. Most shops here stay open past midnight and you can see full restaurants even at 1am. This is truly an area that does not sleep.

Still a good place to purchase latest electronics (cameras, phones, camcorders...). No or little room for bargaining and special offers usually combines several components (example: camera w/ a given lens - no separate pricing for each, etc.). Piece of advice: Google what you are looking for, check some prices on netshops known for good price, and only then start shopping in Mongkok. Good news is that there is no hidden tax when times come to pay your purchases. You can still expect up 20% cheaper on latest models against the best prices elsewhere. Tip: Big shops will offer you additional goodies (extra battery, SD card, camera bags and tripod, etc.). Good hunt!

My wife loved to shop in Ladies market MongKog, she has been there 4 times during our stay in Wanchai Area.. She shopped a lot of accessories for her and she love to come there again and again.

Mongkok is mainly known for the outdoor market selling everything from phone covers, toys, cheap clothing & gimmicks, scarves to designer fakes (at the time of our visit, obvious favorites were Louis Vuitton and Mulberry). If you like haggling, you will enjoy getting down to half the originally asked price. The place is loud, crammed, and fun for approximately an hour - we were to exhausted then and turned to a more serene surrounding.
