Staying in Kowloon we took the Star Ferry over the harbour and then a tram along Des Voeux Road to the market. This is a very small market with clearly permanent shops. The ground floor has a florists, cafe, hobby shop and some jewellery and...More

The exterior of the building wants to draw you in, but a quick look at some of the fabric stalls was enough for us, not much else we were interested in.

The Western Market was a central place in old Hong Kong’s food center. The building has been preserved. Shopping is limited but if you are looking for cloth yardage, the 2nd floor is replete with all yardage shops.

Looking a bit tired now, but still some good stalls here, depending on what you're looking for, don't forget to barter, always go for half the price they quote, you'll be suprised. Best deals are to be had at the Ladies market, but worth a...More

We wondered in here as the building looks very impressive from the outside. It’s a market with a selection of historical items, fabrics, flowers, model trains and some cafes. Nothing really appealed to us, but it’s still a great a beautiful building.

Not having an idea what was there, we ventured in to discover an odd, Edwardian-style market whose second floor, called “Cloth Alley,” was lined with numerous vendors selling fabrics and a retro-ballroom on the top floor which could have easily hosted Frank Sinatra in his...More

I was anxious to tour after admiring the unusual architecture. Odd shops which seem to be oriented to local neighborhood folks. Unwelcoming. Just walk past the outside or give this a miss,

Revisiting this place after a number of years. This building which used to be a wet market looks impressive on the outside. The 'shopping complex' inside is another matter. If you are into models of the the local buses there is a shop which specializes...More
