Hong Kong’s Best Street Markets & Night Markets 2024

Here are what I believe are the best markets in Hong Kong including the popular tourist markets plus local markets and what you can get there, how to get there, and some essential buyer tips.

Visiting a market, even without the intention of buying anything, has long been a must-do on a Hong Kong trip and it’s the same in 2024. They are vibrant and eclectic places, along with being lots of fun, especially as you haggle with the characterful local traders and mingle with the locals.

At most of these markets, you will need to bargain, some of the prices quoted on first asking are simply outrageous, but you’ll quickly learn that with a firm resolve, a charming smile, and some friendly banter, you can get a big discount on first quoted prices. That said, there are a few stalls lately that are putting price signs on their goods, which is generally an indication that there’s no bartering to be had, but you can always try!

If your time in HK is limited or you’re not big on shopping, then I would suggest visiting Temple Street Night Market, Fa Yuen Street Market, and Ladies Market, all conveniently located in the Mong Kok area and they are jam-packed with t-shirts, bags, curious, fashion jewelry, some electronic gadgets and loads more.

Food and markets always go together and you’ll find lots of top eateries around some of these places. See the full reviews for guides on where to eat nearby.

1. Temple Street Night Market

As one of the liveliest night markets in Kowloon, Temple Street Night Market is the place to find all kinds of cheap clothes, local snacks, watches, accessories, and household items. It is HK’s most iconic market and after its revitalization in late 2023, it’s back to its best. There is of course also the temple to visit about halfway along the route, and the street food stalls here are popular too. View the full review here.
