Temple Street

One MUST SEE tourist attraction when in Hong Kong is visiting the Temple Street Night Market.  Located in Yau Ma Tei, it's a great way of seeing what the Kowloon Side is all about.  It's so famous that it even has its own website!

During the day, Temple Street is a great place to visit when you want to see an actual temple.  The Tin Hau Temple is what separates both sections of the Temple Street Night Market.

During the night, this is the place to taste the local cuisine (mantas prawns and such) and shop for oddities (and normal Night Market things) at the market.

Here's a little sampling of what you can find at the Night Market, which starts setting up around 6pm…daily!

1.  Start in Jordan and walk up towards Yau Ma Tei.

A good place to start on the Temple Street Night Market is by getting out at Jordan MTR Station Exit A.  Take a RIGHT and walk along Jordan Road.  You'll hit Temple Street on your RIGHT pretty quickly.  Temple street will run all the way up to Yau Ma Tei MTR Station (just walk back out RIGHT to Nathan Road…which runs parallel to Temple Street).

2.  After an evening of strolling the Temple Street Night Market, you can even walk over to Ladies Market over in Mong Kok (which is just up Nathan Road).
