Hong Kong is famous for her night-markets, and the biggest and most extravagant of which is the Temple Street Night Market, which is an essential experience where the city is concerned.


Temple Street is such a majestic experience that it almost transcends the night-market category, and becomes something more akin to a festival that takes place every night from 18:00 to 23:00. The experience really takes off once the sun has completely set.

What You Can Expect

It can be said that there’s almost no end to what can be found within the market, but if you’re looking for a few things in particular, the market is the best place to go. For clothing, sports equipment, street-food, household items, accessories and DVDs there’s no place better than this.

Haggling is Essential

In order to make the most of a visit to the Temple Street Night Market, one should be adept at haggling. The rule of thumb is that one should generally agree to around two-thirds of the initial price.


The market is situated in the Jordan and Yau Ma Tei areas, making it close to many hotels in Kowloon Hong Kong, with many examples such as Dorsett Mongkok Hong Kong.
