Overview
Before online shopping, megamalls, supermarkets, and eBay, retail trade was solely done at markets. Join this Hong Kong tour to get the lowdown on all the city’s glorious market action, from gorgeous ferns at the Flower Market, and bargain clothing and handbags at the Ladies’ Market to the latest model gadgets and sportswear in Mong Kok. You can’t visit the city without experiencing its extensive and thrilling shopping scene!
Highlights
  • A small-group, guided walking tour of Hong Kong markets
  • Visit off-the-beaten-track attractions, from feng shui advisers to songbirds
  • Enjoy informative commentary on the history and culture of the city
  • Have a chance to shop for unique souvenirs
What to Expect
Your small-group walking tour begins at Hong Kong’s Flower Market, where you’ll explore 50 fragrant shops selling everything from “lucky” houseplants to bonsai trees. Your guide will give you an insider’s perspective on the history and culture of the famous Asian city, including its shopping rituals. From there, you’ll move to nearby Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, where more than 70 songbird stalls display the city’s most popular pets. You’ll get a chance to observe local bird-keeping customs, including the intricate cages where the chirping songstresses are kept. You’ll escape the tourist track with a unique visit to Fa Yuen Street, loved by locals for its bargain-priced clothes and household goods; it’s also one of the world’s most densely populated neighborhoods. Get a taste of local culture and discover a street selling traditional wedding clothes and feng shui items. You’ll also get a peek at Yua Ma Tei, the oldest theater in Kowloon and now the Chinese Opera house, before exploring a century-old fruit market and the bustling food stands of Temple Street.
