Ladies Market, Hong Kong
Categories: Flea Markets, Shopping
Pick up souvenirs and gifts at Ladies Market, a public street market filled with products for everyone, not just women. In addition to discounted brand-name clothing and accessories, which may or may not be real, also find typical Chinese-style items like cushions, silk, linens, chopsticks, and more. Do not accept the first price you are given. Vendors notoriously hike up prices for foreign shoppers, so remember to haggle the cost down to at least 30 percent. Before you leave, visit the unique Bird Market on Yuen Po Street to see about 100 stalls selling singing birds. Ladies Market is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hong Kong Edition.

Ladies market is like high street market. One can get purses, belts, watches, small toys, souvenirs, t shirts etc for cheap price. Mantra is bargaining. Think of a price that you want to pay rather th... read more »
I don't know how to describe this place, but it's like a swap meet. Off brand items, some are pretty old, and not interesting. Many stalls to look at, but everyone is selling the same things: Bedding ... read more »
As with all markets in Asia, know what your want, know what you should be paying for it, and don't be afraid to walk away if you don't get a good price. A lot of cheap and nasty stuff here, but some g... read more »

A famous tourist destination, which is usually crowded, especially its night street market. It is a place for buying souvenirs, the place is made up of a number of streets and there are lots stall at both side of the streets. Similar to most of the bazaar in your own country, if you were to buy some branded items, please beware that there is a possibility for it to be a counterfeit. On top of that, it would be wise to bargain for the goods, and you could buy it at a "very" cheaper price. I would recommend some "stinky tofu" to the visitors, it taste really good though.
While this market does have (slightly) more of a focus on clothes vs. the Temple Street night market, we found the two had very similar offerings. If your time is limited and you only have time to visit one market, suggest you visit the Ladies Market. The neon-bathed street signs of Mongkok (where the Ladies Market is located) is a sight in itself and definitely gives Times Square in NY a run for its money!
I am originally from HK and I go back once or twice a year.Too bad to say that I'm really not impressed with the personality of some booth owners there. The past christmas, one day I took the ladies market as a (road) shortcut. It's not even the peak time and they just started to set up. As you probably notice that they set their booth most time way beyond where shoppers have enough space to giveway, my elderly mum hit one of the displays and three (10 bucks) magnets dropped. I immediately apologize I guess at least 10 times while same time I picked them up. The booth owner said one is broken so i paid for it while I'm apologizing. What happened was even I paid the money she still "F*" me and blamed me nonstop! I was so pissed off and agrued with her. What is the real big deal of that $10 as I already compensated and apologized the whole time! If I want to make her to have no business anymore, I can even say in English over there loudly to say I can get those items in China for $4 each! So, as being a Hongkongese, I'm not going to give business to those at Ladies Market as they really have no manner at all, seriously. That's the last 2rd or 3rd booth owards end of the 1st block of Ladies Market (3 to 4 blocks of LM totally) entered from Argyle street. Make sure stay away from magnet as they're fragile. LOL.
Huge market, very crowded at almost any time of the day or night, very rich in products. The place to find any kind of souvenirs and bargains. Do not expect genuine trade mark products! A most see for a tourist!
if u r tourists and u wanna sth special, here's ur plc
