    This is a feature street market in Mongkok located just north of Prince Edward West Road, around a 5 minute walk from both Prince Edward and the Mongkok East MTR Stations. The Mongkok Flower Market has dozens of shops and is worth seeing anytime of of the year. However, it is particularly interesting now during the Chinese New Year season.

    At this time of year, the flower market is thriving with shops and added stalls filled with seasonal flowers, plants and decorations. You'll be able to see daffodils, orchids, chrysanthemums and holiday specials including Narcissus, peonies, kumquat (mandarin orange) plants, bamboo shoots, colourful willow stems and cherry blossom stems amongst others.

    Do expect crowds when you plan to visit the Flower Market but especially during the Chinese New Year - to a point of being uncomfortable in the evenings and weekends. As such, consider midday weekday visits during CNY when things are more manageable and its easier to take pictures.

    This is the quietest I have ever seen the Ladies Market. It’s a shame to see it so subdued although it makes it a much easier place to visit. In normal times, it is shoulder to shoulder and you need a lot of stamina to make it to through the jostling crowd. We went mid-week and we weren’t jostled or bumped once.
    Whilst there is not the full complement of stalls, there is still enough to make it worth a visit. You can still expect all the normal street market stock – souvenirs, handbags, wallets, backpacks, shoes, caps, toys, T-shirts, clothes, scarves and belts. The current novelty items that seem to be popular at the moment are karaoke machines and microphones. They were a bit of fun and we were tempted by shiatsu massage ball pillows (they were about a half to a third of the cost of very similar ones in mainstream shops).
    GETTING THERE - the MTR is by far the easiest way to get there. Exit via D3 at Mong Kok station. There are multiple exits so if you get confused, just re-check the signs on the station walls. The market is located on Tung Choi St. Once you have come up the D3 stairs to road level, turn 180 degrees, walk to the corner and turn right into Argyle St. The next corner on the right is the start of Ladies Market.

    Langham Place (LP) is the largest shopping mall in Mongkok. Located on Portland Street with direct access to the Mong Kong MTR Station, this is a 15 floor (+ 2 basement levels) mall with 17,000 sq metres of shopping space and over 200 shops and eateries.

    LP tends to be most popular with the younger crowd. The first thing that sticks out when visiting is the 83-metre escalator that takes you to the upper floors. There you discover a peculiar corkscrew shaped floor layout which winds up and down in a circular manner. Some find this confusing and obnoxious compared to traditional shopping mall floor layouts. Others find it quirky and fun, a bit like the retail shops you will find at Langham Place.

    Where many malls in Hong Kong focus on high-end and luxury brand name retailers, LP tends to stick to the Mongkok vibe and culture, fillings its floors with boutique and youthful shops. Some brand names you will recognise like Marks & Spencer, H&M and the cosmetic brands that line the Level 1 Beauty Avenue. However, there are just as many local and lesser known retailers lining the mall's upper floors.

    You'll find a similar range of food and drink venues that includes the likes of Starbucks and McDonalds, local favourites Honeymoon Dessert and Teawood, mixed with lesser known cafes, coffee shops and top floor bar. Langham Place is linked directly to a five star hotel called Cordis where you can find finer dining options and a good lobby bar. There is also a Jason's Marketplace and Cinema at the mall.

    Lastly, worth note that LP often puts on interesting holiday and seasonal festival installations in the main foyer, particularly around Chinese New Year. These are often creative and offer a bit of fun for families with children.

    Sneaker Street is one of two markets that you can visit along Fa Yuen Street in Mongkok. It is situated between Argyle Street to the north and Soy Street to the south. What you will find are several blocks of little more than shoe shops, mostly selling tennis and athletic shoes - hence the name Sneaker Street. There are a few shops dealing in dress shoes, outdoor shoes and other casual footwear as well.

    Note: Many of the shops along Sneaker Street are now dealing in mostly in Nike and Adidas these days. Other brands like Puma, Sketchers and the likes are scattered around and there are still a few lesser knowns as well.

    Note: In recent years, a new outdoor themed mall has opened along Fa Yuen Street called The Forest. There you will find outdoor specialists selling footwear as well as hiking, camping and other outdoor related gear.

    Overall, Sneaker Street is a neat place to pass by and to do a bit of shoe shopping if you are in the area. Prices are reasonable and competitive, usually better than what you will find in similar places in large shopping malls. However, don't expect much in terms of dirt cheap prices for decent quality shoes at Sneaker Street.

    ...to visit in Hong Kong, right next to the very popular (and amazing) flower market so it’s worth visiting both if you’re in the area. This particular street market has all the usual stuff to expect but it’s much less busy and manic than the similar markets in Mongkok.

    Sino Centre has been a trendy zone which is popular among young people and adult since 1980s. The shops in the Sino Centre are mainly located on the mall from the lower ground floor to the Second floor. You will find many shops selling Blu-ray, DVD, CD, computer games, watches, accessories, toys, etc with trendy styles in the mall. Not only the mall, but toy stores are also found above the mall.

    Moko (formerly Grand Century Plaza) is a large shopping mall with direct access to the Mongkok East MTR Station and Royal Plaza hotel. This was just one of the many shopping malls, centres, plazas and arcades in the Mongkok area until major renovations revitalised the property into a modern and nice shopping venue around 5 years ago.

    Now what you find is a nicely laid out 7 floor mall with the cute name of Moko (taking the first two letters from Mong and Kok). The mall has something of a Pop Art fell with some of the signage with most shops now being international midrange brand names, mixed in with some local and casual eateries, food shops and the likes.

    You'll find a large Yata Supermarket, Toy's R Us, Eslite bookstore, Outback, quite a few toy and hobby shops mixed in with a range of clothing, household and lifestyle product retailers. Lighting is good, seasonal holiday decorations are fine as well. In the end, this is the nicest shopping venue in Mongkok East, the best mall option in the area.

    For those who are not interested in crowds you should avoid this spot. However it is well worth a visit to experience something Hong Kong is famous for. Buy some souvenirs and haggle with the sellers.

    The Argyle Centre is one of the endless malls, complexes and plazas that line the streets of the Mongkok District. Located along Nathan Road between Fife Street and Argyle Street this is a popular place for lower priced shopping. The Centre has several floors of open space filled in with lots of small shops and stalls selling affordable women's clothes, garments, accessories, jewellery and other lower priced items.

    These days, Argyle Centre feels a bit like surplus to the newer and much nicer T.O.P. (This is Our Place) shopping mall that opened a few years ago just north of Fife Street. The two complexes are connected by covered walkway bridge and can be visited together.

    Olympian City is a residential complex in Tai Kok Tsui that includes three separate buildings where lower floors make up a large shopping mall. The Olympian City 1,2 & 3 buildings are interconnected and have direct access to the Olympic MTR Station. Shops are open from around 10am until evening time, it is modern, spacious and includes a wide range of retail shops, restaurant and entertainment.

    You'll find mostly mid-range brand name shops with some higher end and luxury options at Olympian City. Plenty of casual, family-friendly dining options, large open spaces for exhibitions and holiday decorations. There is a huge Muji lifestyle shop, one of the largest Marketplace by Jason's in Hong Kong and cinema as well.

    Overall, this is a diverse and comprehensive shopping venue for area residents in Tai Kok Tsui and Mongkok and a pretty good overall mall for those further beyond looking for a new and different shopping mall to spent time on hot or bad weather weekends.

    Nicer to shop and browse than the Ladies Market. Not as hard-selling and pushy for sales and sellers are more honest and calm.

    If you are a bird lover, you should come to visit the Bird Street when you are in Hong Kong. You will see many beautiful domesticated birds. Someone may feel the place is not humane but I think the place is ok. All the birds looked healthy and happy.

    Went here on purpose to find a new glass screen for my samsung s7, only to discover they don't support such an "old" model. They directed me to Tung Choi Street where a similar collection of shops have more of that, and I did get a high quality protector.

    Still a great place for camera gear

    Richmond Arcade is a must see for fans of anime and action figures. Every floor ( except for one with a temple) is chock full of anime figures, dies cast cars, action figures and now those POP figures. Look hard and you can find some dated anime models you've been looking for at a great price. There is an elevator at the top you can use to go down after taking the escalator to up through all the floors. The best time to go is after 4:00 PM, Like the rest of Mong Kok, it's an evening shopping venue.
    Bring cash because none of the shops are configured for credit cards. I go there every time I visit Hong Kong. My last visit was October 2019, but the last visit question didn't scroll down that far.

    Good phone selections , but beware you know the cost elsewhere before going . There are a a couple of shops who will try to overcharge you so be aware. But on the whole the place was as expected
