This bird market is relatively small and interesting - there are all sorts of birds for sale and on display, together with all sorts of bird equipment and food, including bags full of live locusts and worms. I couldn't help but think that some of it was cruel, but then it was clear that many of the local people in... More

There is nothing on this street but birds, birds of every size, color, and kind. Birds singing, birds visiting for the day (more about this later), and many, many birds for sale, also bird cages, bird feed, and everything else necessary to raise birds. Many local bird owners bring their birds here in the morning and let them stay for... More

Went to the Bird Market. A little side alley that if filled with birds for sale…every size and shape…and cages and bird food. Now when we say bird food, we don’t mean bags of grain. We mean bags of live grasshoppers and bags squirming with meal worms. We had never seen anything like this…truly amazing. Song birds are kept in... More

It will only take 5 minutes or so to walk around this bird market. It was interesting to see so many birds in one place on sale but I wouldn't make the walk out to it specifically to see this market unless you're staying close by.

It's not really a street... More like a walk through. It's maybe a 5-10 min walk through. But if you're planning to do all the "market streets" anyways this one is ok. You really don't see this everyday. A bunch of birds of all colors and sizes. It's sad to see some of them. Some do not look they are... More

The place is not worth a visit unless your hotel is nearby. It's a really small market that takes 5 minutes to walk through. If you're expecting a nice market in a park setting, you'll be disappointed.

While walking around the flower markets we could hear the twitter of birds so we decided to follow the sound and came across a street where birds are sold. Quite intriguing to visit if time permits.

Worth a visit if you are in the area. Some beautiful birds. No smoking in the street so it's quite serene. A lovely walk with your family.

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighbourhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
