Tour Details


Hong Kong is packed full of fascinating markets, and you’ll discover the best of them on this unique walking tour as you get up close and personal with where the local of people of Hong Kong have shopped for over 100 years, and continue to do so, despite the the development rising around them.

You'll kick this Hong Kong markets tour off on a fragrant note at the Flower Market, a vibrant and colorful street market consisting of more than 50 shops. With a jungle of exotic blossoms, luck-bringing houseplants, and sweet scents, it's the perfect introduction to the markets in Kowloon. Next, it’s onto the nearby Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, a charming Chinese-style garden with songbird stalls, traditional Chinese courtyards, and moon gates. Soak up the peaceful surroundings and listen to the songs of thousands of birds - it’s easy to forget about the crazy city streets that lie just outside the gates.

As you travel along this Hong Kong city tour, your guide will continue to help you orient yourself, understanding whereabouts in the city you are, learning where Kowloon ends and the New Territories begin, and how to get to mainland China. Also you'll check out a mountain that is a true Hong Kong landmark and symbol.

Visit a popular local street market where vendors sell bargain-priced clothes, bags and accessories. Perhaps try out your bargaining skills. Also we learn about Mong Kok, the world’s most densely populated neighborhood with over 130,000 people per square kilometer! You'll explore the newly built five-star Langham Place hotel and mall and its impact on the surrounding neighborhood, before reaching Shanghai Street.

Glimpse what 1950s and 60s Hong Kong was like in this street, which was once famous for selling everything from traditional wedding clothes to ancestral offerings. Head into the Yau Ma Tei fruit market, and see the shop houses and exotic fruits from all over the world in this century-old wholesale market. Call by the world-famous Jade Market, with its hundreds of hawkers, and learn about how locals believe jade can ward off bad feng shui.

The final stop on this walking tour of Hong Kong’s markets is a visit to the Temple Street area of Yau Ma Tei. See the city’s working class culture first-hand as you admire the Sea Goddess Temple that is the street’s namesake, and admire the Yau Ma Tei Public Plaza, where local people like to spend a lazy afternoon under the beautiful Chinese banyan trees.

This is a market tour that shows you the real local culture of Hong Kong and the fascinatingly diverse neighborhoods of Kowloon.
