Mong Kok 旺角 is one of the first few places i went to when i was in Hong Kong recently. The district has one of the highest population density in the world and if you’ve been there, this would be one of the busiest place in Hong Kong itself. With an array of markets, small shops and mini food stalls, this is one of the place you have to go if it’s your first time in Hong Kong.
Ladies’ Street 女人街 (Tung Choi Street 通菜街)
Tung Choi Street is a street situated between Boundary Street 界限街 and Dundas Street 登打士街. Being one of the most well-known street markets in Hong Kong, the market offers a wide range of women relate products such as clothing, accessories, cosmetics. Of course, there are other items available as well.
Sports Shoe Street 波鞋街 (Fa Yuen Street 花園街)
This street is located between Boundary Street 界限街 and Dundas Street 登打士街 as well, just a block away from Tung Choi Street and you can find loads of sports wear from casual sports wear to sports shoe & etc. There are around 40-50 shops selling almost the same items.
While walking aimlessly from one point to another, we went to another street – Sai Yeung Choi Street South (西洋菜南街) which has a whole lot of electronic products to offer. As you can see in the picture above, broadband resellers were on the street selling different packages of broadband as well.
Oh, we kinda went to Mong Kok Portland Street 砵兰街 as well, one of the red-light district in Hong Kong. Nuff said.
Walking through the street markets made me feel like home as it is slight the same as Petaling Street back in Kuala Lumpur. Was quite disappointed that the sports wear sold there isn’t anyway cheaper than the ones in KL, in fact i could get stuffs at 50-60% cheaper back in KL.
Probably won’t waste that much time going through the few streets mentioned above next time when i visit Hong Kong again. Ha.
