Description

As you walk, you will be immersed in the living culture of the Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok districts – one of the most densely populated spots on Earth! See daily life being lived at street level. The walk begins at the busy and colourful Flower Market, the center of Hong Kong's wholesale and retail flower business. The area is chock-full of vendors selling all manner of flowers, potted plants, bonsais, and more. Next, take in the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, a boisterous scene of men and their bird cages. A short walk away is the bustling and energetic Fa Yuen Street Market, selling a wide range of household items, clothes, accessories, and fruits. You'll then visit the Pet Street to see the brightly coloured tropical fish and a wide range of other pets on sale. Walking further along, you'll join the throngs at the Ladies Market, where bargain clothes, bags, and trinkets are available. Later, it's time to learn the history of the local Tin Hau temple. Amidst the burning coils of incense, learn about the Goddess of the Sea, one of the most popular deities of Southern China. The temple is situated in Banyan Tree Park, where local elders play Chinese checkers. Finish your journey with a walk around the Jade Market, and a stroll through the district's fresh food market. The tour ends at Temple Street in Jordan, where the stall owners are busy setting up for the evening. From here the guide will accompany you to the next Subway station or will take you back to the starting point by bus.
