|Temple Street Night Market|
Named after a Tin Hau temple within close proximity, Temple Street Night Market is a popular destination for both locals and tourists. This place also serves as a backdrop to many memorable Hong Kong movies and series I grew up watching.
Just like the Ladies' Market, you can hunt for souvenirs and do your shopping sprees here. From kitschy items such as key chains and fridge magnets to functional goods like shoes and luggage bags, you can find it all in this night market. The best part about shopping in these street bazaars is that bargaining is a necessity to get the best deal out of it.
However, unlike Ladies' Market, you can find street foods in this night market. Restaurants are plenty along the streets so if you ever go hungry, you can stop by at one of them and have your meals. We managed to get ourselves locals' favourites like curry fishballs and eggettes or egg waffles (鸡蛋仔) as snacks.

Another high point of Temple Street Night Market is the stalls of fortune tellers and opera singers. Asians are generally very superstitious and a strong believer of feng shui (风水). So, do stop by at the fortune tellers stalls and have your future explained for you.

Sharing is caring. A word of advice and a piece of information.
To go to Temple Street Night Market, take the MTR to Yau Ma Tei Station, Exit C, and turn to Temple Street at Man Ming Lane. You can also alight at Jordan Station and take Exit A. Turn right into Jordan Road before taking another right turn to Temple Street. Generally, stalls begin to open after the sun goes down until late at night, about 2 or 3 a.m.
