Sham Shui Po
It was once infamous for pirated software, but, presently, is considered as one of the cheapest places in Hong Kong to get a personal computer and the golden IT shopping center. Tourists can be able to pick up virtually any computer product at a price that beats anywhere else even in the world.
Temple Street Market
It is one of the liveliest night markets in Kowloon and is the palce to go for cheap clothes, delicious street food, watches, pirated CDs and DVDs, fake label clothing, sports and everyday footwear, cooking ware and household items. This is definitely the place to bargain, and there are lots of fortune-tellers walking around the market.
Souvenir hunters will love the Jade Market. There are up to about 500 stalls here vending items from the Jade that gives the market its name, to lots of Hong Kong souvenirs ranging from the tacky to the genuinely interesting. There is an easy-going atmosphere here with friendly stallholders but always remember to bargain with a smile!
Ladies'Market and Fa Yuen Street Market
Ladies'Market is a veritable explosion of clothing and accessories, shoes and bags, which is extremely popular and things get a little crowded here, because the vendors always use hooked poles to dislodge higher-placed items for sale and the path that runs down the center of the market is barely wide enough to cater for one person.
Fa Yuen Street Market is a typical Hong Kong style market with fresh food and lots of knick-knacks, smaller than the Ladies'Market.
At present, Hong Kong's another crowded area is Mong Kok which is always fresh and energetic because most small malls and streets aim at the young generation. In the area, electrical appliances are sold on Sai Yeung Choi Street South and golden ornaments on Nathan Road.What's more, Mong Kok has many featured streets like Sport Shoes Street (Garden Street), Women's Street?Tung Choi Street?, Golden Fish Street?Tung Choi Street?, Flower's Fair and Bird's Garden.
