Yuen Po Street Bird Garden & Flower Market information
In this enchanting corner of Mong Kok, you will find a handful of old men out ‘walking’ their caged songbirds. Stick around long enough and you should see birds being fed squirming caterpillars with chopsticks. There are also feathered creatures for sale, along with elaborate cages carved from teak (an excellent souvenir, in our opinion). Adjacent to the garden is the flower market, which theoretically keeps the same hours, but only gets busy after 10am.
Don't miss shops choked with thousands of multi-hued orchids, all cheap as chips.
