Temple Street Night Market in Hong Kong Tour Guide:
The largest night street market in Hong Kong, the Temple Street Night Market offers one of the most memorable post-dusk experiences of the city. Located on the Jordan section of Temple Street, this street market comes alive post-dusk with multitudes of hawkers and shoppers keen on making a great deal.
You can find everything under the sun here and at cheap rates. Browse through thousands of trinkets, jade souvenirs, antiques, clothes, CDs, plastic toys and much more and you might find a real treasure. The art of bargaining is must here as nothing here costs as much as displayed; the shopkeepers also expect you to bargain and bargain hard. Groups of Chinese opera troupes perform all along the street adding to the entertainment aspect and fortune-tellers abound.
If you are willing to take the risk of not-so-clean kitchens, then you can even indulge your palates with some of the most authentic dining experiences of Hong Kong. With no frozen foods, open fires and authentic Chinese cuisine, the Temple Street Night Market is a foodie paradise. You can meet visitors from across the world here and dine besides them, swapping stories and tales of your Hong Kong experience.
Note: The quality of goods sold at the Temple Street Night Market is said to be questionable; for better quality flea market goods, visit the Stanley Market and Ladies Market. It is the shopping and haggling experience and the overall atmosphere that makes the Temple Street Night Market such a draw with tourists and locals alike.
