|About these ratings|
Chances are you'll accidentally stumble upon one of these shopping frenzies on a tour of the city. But don't just stop at one. Hong Kong's street markets are diverse, catering to various clienteles with different merchandise. For instance, the Ladies' Market on Tung Choi Street in the Mong Kok neighborhood specializes in (you guessed it) women's clothing and accessories. Plus, each bazaar also has its own ambience. The best example is the Temple Street Night Market—a traveler favorite. This nocturnal marketplace in the Jordan neighborhood bursts with activity as vendors hawk clothes, electronics, and local culinary snacks from brightly lit stalls. Another bazaar of note is the Stanley Market. Occupying an old fishing village on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, this marketplace boasts artwork, silk garments, and colorful souvenirs.
Each market operates on different hours. Reaching most of them is usually quite easy as they tend to be close to subway stops. For more information, check out the Hong Kong Tourism Board's website.
