Hong Kong Markets: 5 Markets You Should Not To Miss 

Temple Street Night Market

Whenever I travel or even when I’m at home in the US, I visit markets regularly. At home, it’s my local farmers market, when travelling it’s anything from flea markets to night markets. Hong Kong markets are some of my favourite in the world, so if you’re planning a trip, do not skip them. Visit one at the very least!

HELPFUL TRAVEL TIPS

  • Find a cheap flight using Skyscanner or Momondo. I like these two booking sites because they both search all websites and airlines around the globe including budget airlines.
  • I use Booking.com or Tripadvisor to find the best rates on accommodations
  • Having gotten sick on my travels in the past, I never travel without being insured. You never know when something may happen. For long-term travel, I use World Nomads and in other instances, I have used Roam Right depending on what kind of activities I am participating in (say extreme sports).
  • Get up to $40 off your first Air Bnb stay by using this code!

Hong Kong Market #2 – Hong Kong Flower Market 

While you may not be looking to buy flowers on your travels, I’m a huge fan of flowers so I just like to go and take a look at blooms. It was on our way back from the Bird Market to our hotel so we weaved in and out of floral shops.

Hong Kong Market #3 – Goldfish Market 

Here’s another market that you may not be buying things at but I loved seeing all the different fish. It’s only a block long in the middle of Kowloon but worth it for photos!

Hong Kong Market #4 – Temple Street Night Market

The Temple Street Night Market is in the Jordan area of Kowloon. It’s several blocks and there are tons of great eateries in the vicinity as well. My local friend who’s a chef took my friends and I, for some seafood and shopping. There are seafood purveyors who you can buy from and then they cook it for you to eat. Since that visit, Temple Street has been one of my favourite Hong Kong markets.

Hong Kong Market #5 – Antique Row aka Cat Street

Over on the Hong Kong Island side is a market called Cat Street where you can find beautiful antiques and curios to bring back home. I loved just wandering around and seeing what was being sold. My friend found a really cool vintage glass clock. I’d love to go back when I have a permanent home, it’s amazing for home decor. Antique Row is located along Hollywood Road in Central.
