I am a Minion fan, and there were so many Minion merchandise there that I had to tell myself to stop. Don't buy at the first stall that you visit, take your time and stroll through. There were knock off items there, but they were obvious. Some stalls do bargain and some won't. Just take your time and enjoy.

Mongkok is funny place. It is quiet in the morning though shops and restaurants are opened at 10 11 am. It usually becomes busy after late afternoon until midnight. It is crowded with locals and tourists every night. Mongkok was a place where people looking for new and special products in the past (maybe two decades before). Though it is... More

We visited here a few times via the MTR to see the ladies markets. It can be very busy especially on weekend evenings but definately worth seeing to pick up some great bargains on electronics, clothes, shoes, bags and other items. We visited on a Friday evening and could hardly move past the crowds of people flooding the streets. There... More

If you're not afraid of hustling around and standing shoulder to shoulder with people, then Mongkok is the place to be. Bustling shops, sneaker stores, flashy jewelry shops, cheap eats, fast food stalls, and bargains welcome you at every corner and at every turn. This place is practically empty in the morning, but come here in the afternoon and nighttime... More

This is the ladies markets where you can find all yr gift souveniers for home and friends. You will also find lots of bags, jewellery, shoes at very low prices. The people who own the markets are friendly and helpful and the best time to visit is around 10ish in the morning when its still rather quiet. Everyone loves to... More

the right place to buy souvenirs for your friends. don't bargain unless you want to buy. if you want to bargain, you may ask them to get 40 % - 50 % lower from the price they offer

Bunch of Football (soccer) jerseys I did see some shirts that were OK guy design copies... they had some jeans I didn't look at. You can take the bus over... More

This is where to shop, and haggle as best as you can. Be wary of items that look the same but are different, for example.... soccer jerseys with or without numbers and names on them, different sizes of scarfs (open and inspect the goods!!)

It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy.
