Street market. Mongkok. HK.

The Ladies (night) market is the crown of the Mongkok street market scene, best seen in the early evening before the tourist traffic gets heavy or at nighttime when the market is thriving. Here there seems to always be something new, interesting, practical or just fun to buy. The Ladies market is a good place to spend 60-90 minutes, perhaps longer if you are having fun.

 

The stalls mostly sell the same items so don't be afraid to shop around a bit. Prices can quickly fall 33-75% when they know you are not quick to buy. You can aim for 50% asking price if you are a seasoned haggler, otherwise just pay a price you are happy with for whatever goods you want to purchase.

 

The Ladies Market starts at Argyle St., near the Mongkok MTR station and runs for three long blocks.
