The only place worth mentioning here is the Sneaker Street. There are alot of shops to choose from and they are really affordable. We spent two days here.

We stayed in Mongkok for a week vacation and very much loved the location. There are many markets within walking distance to buy souvenirs, clothes, and electronics. It has a great MTR station which can take you directly to Hong Kong Island. It also is much cheaper priced location for hotels compared to Hong Kong Island.

At the Ladies market for imitation wallets, handbags, and Tshirts. At the plaza across the road you can shop for cheap phones and tablets and second hand phones

Mong kok area is very densly populated, but an interesting area. Get off the bus or MTR here to find the ladies market. A good market, selling much the same things as the night market, but in the daytime.

Shopping paradise, you can find everything you want in here. Must bargain smartly as they also need to care their business as well.

If you are a fan of culture, cheap thrills... this is the place. Not my favourite spot but good for travelers to feel the locals vibe!

We walked here in the evening from the Nathan Hotel – the streets were packed with people many obviously out to eat – a number of restaurants had long queues of patrons waiting for tables – plenty of shops in a series of streets running parallel to Nathan Road – one street specialised in electrical goods – Ladies Market is...

It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
