  • If you’re heading out to the flower market in Kowloon, the bird market is close by and worth a visit. There were a few tourists but mostly just locals. It’s a slice of life that visitors do not get to...  more »
  • This short street is everything bird. From small to large, live bags of critters for food, cages & accessories, it's worth a wander by.  more »

  • Great local culture! A walk through the Bird Garden is quite an immersive experience and well worth your time. You will be completely surrounded by caged birds of many varieties, artisan cages, and various foods for birds and flowers. Loved it.
  • A nice fun place to visit. I don't know much about birds but it looked like there was a wide selection of accessoires and supplies as well as birds to sell. Owners bring their own birds to socialize.
  • What a cool place to come for a stroll. They have some really beautiful birds. Don't forget to stroll past the flowers too!
  • I didn't really see the charm of this as a tourist attraction tbh. It's like an open-air, bird-focused pet market. I was surprised at the number of Australian native birds for sale (given it's illegal to export them ... I guess they are locally bred?).
  • A very local gathering of bird enthusiasts. Everyone willing to chat & allowed non-flash photography of their pet birds. Remembered to wash hands before and after visit

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
