Hong Kong Markets

This is the post excerpt.


Just got back from nine days in Hong Kong! It really is the city that has it all. Most noticeably are their various street markets of Mong Kok, that are jammed with shoppers from all over the world. The best times to go are at night, this is when each and every vendor is out and ready to haggle over prices. The markets offer anything, from fidget spinners to live animals. The Ladies Market is the biggest market you’ll find in HK.  The narrow outdoor aisles of tables (for blocks) are stuffed with clothes, knock offs, you name it! You’ll find it!

In Tsim Sha Tsui, the fish market is worth a visit! Fresh seafood is abundant there, because the city is located near the ocean. It’s basically a Chinese San Francisco. The locals like to order fish balls coated in curry. They are usually served on a stick and cost about $8 Hong Kong dollars, aka about $1 USD! My favorite street food of the trip turned out to be a beverage, lychee milk tea to be exact. Another day,  I found a lychee flavored Fanta soda pop in a local convenient store. I LOVE anything lychee flavored, so I was happy as a clam.
