Jotting Down Memories Post Street Market Adventure
Although tourists cruise this market every night, it is still a fun bet for a good dose of Hong Kong market flavor. Get ready to negotiate via calculator and come ready to do so (best to start by countering with half the asking price and go up from there). If bartering gets your appetite up there are plenty of great noodle shops scattered along where you can stop for a beer and a bite. The market sits along Temple Street between Jordan and Ya Ma Tei. Your best bet is to grab the MTR over to Jordan station- Temple St. is three blocks west of Nathan St.
Night markets, good coffee.
Hong Kong in general amazed and impressed me. I can't wait to find myself getting lost on the beautiful winding streets again. I loved the night markets. I stocked up on cheap jade, ridiculous off-brand Disney goods, and silly t-shirts to bring home to family and friends. I had an awesome time shopping in HK, seeing the culture and taking day trips all around the city. No city I've been to yet quite compares.
