Danny was a wonderful tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was great, a very interesting look into Hong Kong history/culture.
The legendary markets of Hong Kong are not only treasure troves of interesting wares, they’re also unique ways to experience the former British colony. Get an insider’s view of life in this fast-paced Asian city with a guided visit to several standout markets, from feng shui advisers at the Temple Street Night Market to the songbird stalls of Yuen Po.
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.
