I stayed in the Mongkok area and it was a great surprise. It is gritty for sure but so much less expensive than HKI. The people are for real there is great street food to be had, plus lots of interesting shop. Easily accessible by the Metro system. Make sure you get the Octopus card to make access easy..

It's a nice place to stroll around after the sunset. it is basically a huge open air market with sellers and food stalls everywhere. the streets are surrounded by Chinese product shops but many of them are now just selling cheap stuff to tourists.

We enjoyed going around the night market and were able to buy merchandise we wanted. However, it looks like some prices are higher than those in local shops somewhere else, not found in the night market.

Very interesting. Thousands of kiosks, stores, and wares to sell and purchase. They don't bargain as well as you think. Crowded, but I felt safe for an American visiting this area at night.

In Mongkok we found street markets full of clothes and souvenirs close by the flower markets and fish shops (live fish). Frantic pace of action after about 10 in the morning until late at night.

Vibrant and busy place with loads of places to eat and places to shop at. Many street vendors and also big regular stores. Make sure not to be in a hurry because people walk slowly and to be able to take it all in yourself.

Mong Kok, a very crowded area but fun to explore. There's plenty of food places, plenty of shops, and plenty of markets. There's also shopping malls and cinemas in the area. The Ladies and sneakers markets is also in this area and a JolliBee joint! This place is very happening! If you visit Hong Kong make sure to check out... More

The place is extremely crowded with tourists and locals alike. There is a night market as well as an electronic market. There is an MTR station nearby making accessibility easy.
