Amazing Hong Kong Market
Hong Kong, which is a harbor city, was once the main colony of British in Asia. Today, it is part of China, but evergreen effect still stays there. Some people go there with the expectation of being very British, and other expect it to be very Chinese, but the fact is that Hong Kong is one of a kind city, one has to experience it with his or her own eyes to understand it in a better way.
One part of cultural attractions of the city that you can’t miss is Hong Kong’s markets, you can find markets in almost every continent, but the markets of Hong Kong are unique. Here families dine with sidestreets while the important avenues hang grow with locals selling goods and tourists. It is smelly, noisy, and loud, you won’t forget these places soon. The best markets are located in Kowloon, the peninsula sticking out from the Asian peninsula into the harbor of Hong Kong, though there is couple of good markets on the island. Some of the best markets to shop, eat and drink are as follows:
Temple Street Night market is one of the favorite markets for tourists. It operates on different blocks along Temple Street in Mongkok. Since it only runs at night, everyone just can’t tolerate the crowd, noise and flash lights of this market. The main goods sold here are clothing, electronics and combination of almost everything. There are many open air food stalls to help you in getting energy to travel from one end of the market to another. In case if you are not sure what to buy, there are people to assist you.
Daytime market in Mongkok’s Tung Choi street is called the Ladies Market, but the truth is, it should be called the overpriced market for tourists. This place is filled with tourists that any other market in Hong Kong. Vendors in this market do not allow much bargaining and the market is more aggressive. The choice of products is amazing and tourist friendly as well. If you are searching for branded products, this is certainly the market for you. But you should also know that lot of fake products and copies are also sold in this market.
