Markets in Hong Kong are some of the best places to pick up fashionable and cheap clothing, accessories, jewellery, electronics, souvenirs, and toys. Fake goods are common in most markets, but you can also find local designers who are just making their way in the fashion world. In Hong Kong, there really is a market for every style and taste.
These traditional marketplaces are often very crowded, so be prepared for a bit of jostling to find what you’re looking for. Bargaining is a must to get a fair price, especially at night markets in Hong Kong as traders often start with inflated prices. Kowloon is home to many of Hong Kong’s finest markets, as the area has more space and cheaper rents than Hong Kong Island. It’s fair to say that markets are found all over Hong Kong, all of which make good alternative to swanky malls and department stores.
