Explore Yau Ma Tei/ Mongkok
Fa Yuen Street, Hong Kong
After a good dim sum, we plan to travel back to Mongkok. Our first stop is to find bargain- priced trendy fashion and casual wear on Fa Yuen Street. Stores are open 11am-9:30pm daily.
At Fa Yuen Street, you can find over fifty stores selling sport shoes. Thus this street is famous selling sports gears and is also known as “Sport Shoes Street” or “Sneaker Street”.
Ladies Street, Hong Kong
Be spoilt for choice at Ladies’ Market, open noon-11:30pm daily.
At Ladies Street, tourists find good bargains for T-shirts, cheap apparel, necklaces, bracelets, trinkets, purses and bags.
As a bargaining guide, tourists can negotiate 50% off the price tag or even lower if you intend to buy in bulk.
However, it is best wise to only start negotiating after you have a genuine interest to buy. Watch out for ugly faces if you walk away after shop owners accede to your asking price!
Temple Street Night Market, Hong Kong
At night, it is time to hit the famous open air night market, which opens from 2 p.m. to midnight.
At Temple street, you can find a bustling array of stalls selling everything ranging from watches, leather-wear, clothing, souvenirs and etc.
It is also a place where we can get our fortune told and watch Cantonese opera singers perform.
After a full day of shopping, it is time to have a good rest and enjoy the next day in Hong Kong!
