Unlike Bangkok or Taiwan, it's rare to find a night market in Hong Kong, a situation that gives instant fame to Temple Street. After the sun goes down, the stalls pop up. The tourists come for the 'I heart HK' T-shirts and watches of dubious provenance, (and the occasional sex toy available here and there). Sit down for a fortune-telling session and find out what's in store for you – but do take everything with a grain of salt. Better yet, why not join in the street-side karaoke performances that take place every night?
As well as being a food paradise and home to many amazing restaurants, Hong Kong is also well known for the city's street market culture. For a geographically tiny city, we've got an incredible range of street markets that specialise in everything from cheap electronics to authentic Chinese dried seafood. Here's a rundown of some of our favourite retail hubs that our city can be proud of!
