Mong Kok Shopping (Self Guided), Hong Kong

Streets, stalls and neon-lit shops are alive with thrilling shopping opportunities in Mong Kok. You can buy just about anything here, from birds and bangles to flowers and furniture. The name of the district means "busy corner" in Cantonese and it may well be the most densely populated place on Earth, but that is no reason to stay away. The district is one of the most popular, varied and exciting places for shopping in Hong Kong.

A stellar attraction is the Ladies' Market on Tung Choi Street, which gets its name for the large number of clothing items and accessories for women that can be haggled for and bought here. Tung Choi Street North is known locally as the Goldfish Market for its shops selling aquariums, goldfish and indigenous and exotic fish species. Even if you don't want to buy, come to gaze into tanks filled with dramatically colored fish. Head on over to Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, a traditional style Chinese garden where you can purchase exotic birds, beautifully designed bamboo cages and plenty of other bird related items. Follow your nose to the Flower Market where there are thousands of gorgeous blooms.

If you are into sports or the latest footwear fashions for teens, dive into the sports shoe shops on Fa Yuen Street. Some consider this part of Mong Kok as hosting the greatest gathering of sports shoe and sportswear shops on the planet. Mong Kok has much to offer the eager shopper; if you want it, someone's bound to have it for sale.
