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 ambiance. The best example is the Temple Street Night Market – a traveler favorite. This nocturnal marketplace bursts with activity as vendors hawk clothing, electronics and local food, and culinary accessories from brightly lit stalls. There are even fortune tellers and opera singers. Another bazaar of note is the Stanley Market. Occupying an old fishing village on the southern coast of Hong Kong Island, this marketplace boasts home decor, jewelry and colorful souvenirs. Recent travelers said not to shy away from bargaining, as many were surprised at how low vendors are willing to drop their prices when they feel like you're going to walk away.

On the edge of the Kowloon Peninsula's popular Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood, the promenade is the Hong Kong locale for many visitors. Stretching from Hong Kong's colonial-era Clock Tower to Hung Hom, the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade gives you unobstructed views of Hong Kong Island's majestic skyline. During the day, you can watch the boats travel in and out of Victoria Harbour, but travelers recommend making an extra visit at night: From 8 to about 8:20 p.m., the Symphony of the Stars (a sound-and-light show) projects dazzling lights onto the Hong Kong skyline. Day or night, consider taking in the atmosphere at one of the many restaurants and bars located here.

If you're looking to rest your feet after a long day of touring, retreat to the Nan Lian Garden. Located in Kowloon, the Nan Lian Garden is a nearly 9-acre public park modeled after the style of the Tang Dynasty, which ruled from A.D. 618 to 907. Along the peaceful pathways, you'll find lotus ponds, manicured trees and gurgling springs, not to mention traditional Chinese timber architecture spread throughout. That, combined with Hong Kong's soaring mountain range as the garden's backdrop, makes for a tranquil place of refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city.
