Tour description provided by Viator

Shop your way through the streets of Mongkok! This guided Hong Kong walking tour takes you to the various street markets that the district of Mongkok is known for, including the Mongkok Wet Market, the Goldfish Market and the Jade Market! You’ll be immersed in the lively atmosphere of Mongkok as you explore the markets’ shops and restaurants, where locals stock up on everything from electronics to fish.

Your Hong Kong walking tour starts as you and your guide hop on the open-top sightseeing bus in Kowloon and make your way to the Mongkok District, which boasts the highest population density in the world. The area is home to a large number of markets and shops selling a variety of goods from women’s clothing to electronics to fish! These busy commercial streets draw locals and visitors alike – it’s a must-see area of the city.

Stop first at the Mongkok Wet Market, an outdoor fresh meat and vegetable market. Next, visit Fa Yuen Street Market, where small retailers sell an assortment of clothing and accessories. Then enjoy the colorful sights and wonderful scents of the Flower Market, and try on the many jade accessories sold at the Jade Market. Delight in the melodious sounds of songbirds at the Yuen Po Street Garden, and then stroll to the Goldfish Market, which sells assorted aquarium pets and ornaments.

Along the way, enter the Tin Hau Temple, one of Hong Kong’s oldest and most traditional temple complexes, with its elegant Main Hall dedicated to Tin Hau, the protector of the fishermen. Mystics predicting futures are scattered throughout the complex, and elderly locals playing chess can be found under banyan trees outside.
