Ladies Market, Hongkong
LADIES MARKET (HONGKONG-MACAU Part 15)
We were heading to the Ladies Market in Mongkok ,Hongkong at around 5 pm and there was some rain showers though it didn’t last that long. We were tired already and decided to go back.
We took the bus again going back to the central but this time the queue was long. When we arrived at the bus station we went immediately to the Admiralty MTR Station going to Mongkok.
Mongkok? What else but the ladies market again. We went to Mongkok Ladies Market on our 3rd night but my sisters were not done yet, so we went back for the second time.I guess traveling without Pasalubong among us Filipinos is quite difficult.
Tung Choi Street is a street situated between Boundary Street and Dundas Street in Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong. Its southern section, popularly known as Ladies’ Market or Ladies’ Street is one of the most well-known street markets in Hong Kong, where various kinds of products are available for cheap prices (not just for women, as its name suggests). In the northern section of the place, is also somewhat well-known, features a market selling goldfish and is called Goldfish or Goldfish Market.
Buying in Mongkok’s Ladies Market requires good bargaining skills, my sister would start asking half the price of the item and later they would arrive in a price acceptable to booth parties.
While checking the entire market, I also found myself buying things for some people back home. What’s nice about this place is that you will find quite a number of Filipinos working with some locals selling some goods. Some merchants would even say some Filipino words like “suki”, “magandang klase” should they here you speaking in tagalog.
The shopping was quite tiring so we check for the nearest resto. We found The Red Chili (Thai Resto ). The price was relatively reasonable and the taste was good as well. The service attendants just need some training on customer and service training….
