Temple Street Night Market

Temple Street Night Market Hong Kong
The Temple Street Night Market is Hong Kong's busiest and liveliest night market, it is noisy and crowded with rows of stalls with all sorts of cheap merchandise, fakes, souvenirs, clothing, electronics, and open air food stalls.

It is worth a trip to people watch and take in the atmosphere and smells... you may or may not enjoy the shopping here, the vendors seem to be a bit more aggressive than at the other markets and they cater to both tourists and locals, so the range of the merchandise is very varied, from souvenirs to clothing, inexpensive jewelry and trinkets, and every day items for the locals.

This is definitely the place to bargain, and bargain hard. You will likely see the same merchandise in several different stalls as you walk from one to the other, so you might want to check out several stands to get a feel for the prices and the types of merchandise. The market is not very big, so you can always go back.

The Temple Street Night Market is also known for its fortune tellers, fengshui experts, herbalists and every now and then you will catch an impromptu cantonese opera performance, this all adds to the lively and bustling atmosphere of the market.

You will also find plenty of watering holes and street food stalls, some are open air canteens and you see them quite frequented by locals, always a good sign if you want to give one a try.
