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.
