Temple Street Night Market is the largest and liveliest in Hong Kong. This carnival of shopping and snacking starts every night from around 6pm but really gets going once the sun sets. Located in Kowloon, you can find Temple Street Market about 300 northwest of Jordan MTR Station (Exit A).
It's one of the most popular places in Hong Kong to shop for cheap clothes, delicious open-air street stall food, watches, pirated CDs and DVDs, fake label clothing, sports and everyday footwear, cooking ware and household items.
Any marked prices should be taken as suggestions alone as this is definitely a place to bargain. Due to the popularity of Temple Street as a tourist destination, prices are not as good as you will find at other night markets in Hong Kong, but for an overall spectacle it’s not to be missed.

Many of the market traders at Temple Street are selling the same kitsch, mass-produced souvenirs, such as resin molds of dragons, Chinese Qipao dresses and mobile phone paraphernalia, but they do make interesting and cheap presents to take back home. Don't believe any seller who claims their Gucci wallet or Calvin Klein underwear is genuine – it isn't – and be sure to check the quality of any stitching, zippers, and clasps before paying. Amusingly enough, you'll also find many fortune-tellers and herbalists and on the odd occasion some free open-air Cantonese opera.
Lining the streets and side streets is an incredible range of restaurants to choose from, with Cantonese seafood, Japanese, Indian and Italian pizza being popular, along with many snack stalls for eating as you browse.
Temple Street Night Market runs for over 1 km, and can get very crowded. It is at its best from around 7pm to 10pm when it's a colourful and noisy spectacle – the definition of a Hong Kong market!
