When we first arrived at this market, I was a bit overwhelmed. You need to make sure you examine every purchase you make. Quality varies from one vendor to the other and you need to HAGGLE.

Mongkok is a crowded place exspecially known about it numerous electronics and sports/leisure clothing shops, small restaurants. The local youth is gathering here as well and tourists. Shops open rather late, so it is no use go there before 11 am.

Plenty of shops which all end up having pretty much the same items as the others. There are streets of just: sports wear/shoes, electronics etc. Probably a little cheaper than other suburbs BUT overall Hong Kong isn't as cheap as it used to be many years ago. You will find the ladies markets at Mongkok - again the stalls repeat... More

We travelled with an infant to Hong Kong from Shenzen. Since we were travelling in Shenzen, I noticed that there were too much smoke, from ongoing construction and people were smoking everywhere. It was very unpleasant. The sneakers street was interesting as there were many branded shops for shoes. At the area where local people sell souvenirs, the prices were... More

We stayed in Mongkok for a week vacation and very much loved the location. There are many markets within walking distance to buy souvenirs, clothes, and electronics. It has a great MTR station which can take you directly to Hong Kong Island. It also is much cheaper priced location for hotels compared to Hong Kong Island.

We were able to stay at Stanford Hotel Mong Kok for 3 days and explored the town/district of Hong Kong. This hotel is centrally located in Mong Kok. We were a few blocks away from the MTR train station, a public park, Nathan Road, and Ladie's Shopping Lane. There were amble stores, cafes, restaurants, and even Starbucks! My wife and... More

Mong kok area is very densly populated, but an interesting area. Get off the bus or MTR here to find the ladies market. A good market, selling much the same things as the night market, but in the daytime.

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighbourhood Profile
Mong Kok
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. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
