What to expect

Discover the best of Hong Kong and the fascinatingly diverse neighbourhoods of Kowloon on this Kowloon market tour! You'll get a proper insight into the local life and market action, from fresh fruit at Yau Ma Tei fruit market to precious stones at the Jade Market, and fresh ferns at the Flower Market.

Itinerary

Flower Market, a bustling and colourful street market consisting of more than 50 shops, is where your adventure kicks off. Explore a jungle of exotic blossoms, luck-bringing houseplants, and sweet scents. Next, it’s onto the nearby Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, a charming Chinese-style garden, where you'll listen to the charming sound of thousands of birds. This is just a perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city for some time.

To make most of your day and ensure you’re thinking just like a local, your tour guide will do his best to provide perfect orientation in the city. You'll know where Kowloon ends and the New Territories begin, and see a mountain that is a true Hong Kong landmark and local symbol. Now’s the time for you to practice your bargaining skills at a popular local street market where vendors sell bargain-priced clothes, bags, and accessories. This unique market is set deep within the neighbourhood of Mong Kok, home to more than 130,000 people per square kilometre.

Then you'll head out down Nathan Road to reach the renowned Shanghai Street and glimpse what 1950s and 60s Hong Kong was like. To experience some more authentic markets you will then head into the Yau Ma Tei fruit market that sells exotic fruits from all over the world and the world-famous Jade Market, where you'll learn about how locals believe jade can ward off health hazards and bad feng shui. The final stop on this walking tour of Kowloon’s markets is a visit to Temple Street.
