Overview

Hong Kong is famous for its markets and shopping streets dedicated to one type of product, and this 5-hour small-group tour showcases the best. With a guide, stroll through the thriving Flower, Goldfish, and Bird Markets, and explore a traditional food market. Meet the vendors, peruse the wares, and learn how these stall fests have made the city tick for over a century. A ride on the Mass Transit System (MTR) is included.
  • 5-hour Hong Market street markets walking tour
  • Absorb the colors and aromas of the Flower Market
  • Stroll through the Goldfish Market and see the chirping exotic birds at the Bird Market
  • Explore Fa Yuen Street Market, with its covered wet market
  • Learn why locals shop at these old markets despite the rise of modern malls
  • Includes ride on Hong Kong's Mass Transit System (MTR)
  • Small group tour for maximum of six, with choice of morning or afternoon departure
Book a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your guide and small group of no more than six at a central location at 9am or 2pm accordingly.
Then, ride a Mass Transit System (MTR) metro train to Mongkok, one of Hong Kong’s liveliest districts. This vibrant shopping area overflows with markets, many encompassing entire streets dedicated to particular types of products, like flowers and kitchenware.
Follow your guide to the Flower Market, where the outlets abound with exotic blooms. Savor the colors and scents, and learn about the different blooms and houseplants, many thought to bring good luck.
Next, explore Bird Street, otherwise called Yuen Po Street Bird Garden. Admire this delightful Chinese garden and see the old men who gather here with their caged songbirds.
Pass the stalls selling items such as intricately crafted birdcages, and explore the Goldfish Market, where the shops peddle goldfish and arrays of prized species of fish alongside ornate aquariums.
Lastly, visit the famous Fa Yuen Street Market. Absorb the sights and sounds of this old-school market, including its noisy wet market counters piled with fish, fruit, vegetables, and other culinary specialities.
Your tour then ends in Kowloon, when your guide departs.

Friendly guide who knew the area well. We went to the flower market, the fish market, the bird market and a street of clothing stalls. Honestly I did not love this tour, just felt that there isn't really anything interesting and if you wanted to do market shopping, rather go to Stanley Market.

Daisy gave us a private tour through Kowloon. She also provided us a lot of insights about how people live in Hong Kong. She was very flexible with our asks and we could make the most out of this tour - the title 5 hours maybe misleading as it was mostly visiting three markets and we where done after 3 hours.

Our tour guide, Helen, did a wonderful job of showing us the different areas and cultures of Mong Kok. I especially liked the fact that she called the day before to confirm our tour. She was easy to talk to and gave us a good insight into the history of Hong Kong as well make sure that she was covering any questions that we had. I would highly recommend this tour as well as Helen the tour guide.
