Mong Kok, Hong Kong - 16th March 2010

By: tarepanda

Today we visit an outdoor market calls The Woman's Street.  It's located in Mong Kok, a place which, according to Guinness World Records, has the highest population density in the world.

Here is the Woman's Street, so named because there are a lot of outdoor stalls selling clothes, handbags and accessories.  Now that it's popular with tourists, there are stalls for souvenirs, imitation name brand handbags and watches, and other things too.  You have to bargain the prices here.  Notice that the building on the left is under renovation, and the scaffolding is built with bamboos.


These sell handbags and fans.



This one has T shirts.


This one has towels.


And look, lots of stuffed toys!


There are also a lot of food shops here. 

This window display is not real, but made with plastic to show you what they have.


This tea shop boasts that the president of Taiwan is a regular customer.


This booth sells a lot of snacks.  Sausages, meatballs, and eve beef tripe.


We head on to another market nearby.  It's the type of market where people buy their cooking ingredients.  While there are supermarkets many people still prefer to get their meat and produce at the street markets, where the price is better, the food fresher and the service friendlier.


This is a soy bean stall.  It sells bean sprouts, tofu, bean curds and other things make from tofu.  When a customer wants to buy tofu, the owner cuts from the big block on the wooden board.


This one has dried fishes hanging, and bags of dried shrimp and other stuff.


Ah, something we recognize!!  I spot some broccoli and zucchini!


The fruit stall has longan, starfruit, dragon fruit (the big red ones) among the bananas, papayas, guavas, mangoes and pears.
