Temple Eats



A very atmospheric market in Yau Ma Tei.  Not quite as busy as the Ladies market.  The fun is actually eating here.  Fabulous cheap street food.  Very clean too.


Getting there 



Taxi: Temple Street
MTR: Jordan station Exit A. Walk down nathan Road and turn left along Jordan Road to Temple Street which is 3rd street on right.
Yau Ma Tei. Exit C. Turn left along Mang Ming Lane to Temple Street, 2nd on left.
You will  see the stalls set up on the road.



The Temple Street markets open from 4:00pm-12 midnight daily but the best time to go is from 6:00pm onwards. Nothing much is open before then. On the outer edge of the market stalls are fixed priced shops selling all sorts of things such as binoculars, electronic items and phone cases.  Throughout the markets are street food restaurants set up full of locals and tourist.  Enjoy the fabulous neon lights of Nathan Road on your way home in the evening.


What to buy

A selection of copy handbags, watches, clothing.  Also an array of knick knacks, tourist items, toys, artwork, underwear, electronics.  Down the footpath either side are little shops with some of the same things but much cheaper and no bargaining needed.
 

Hints

Bargaining is essential at the stalls.  The same deal as the Ladies Markets.  Not quite as crowded or as big but a lot of fun and different things to buy.  More for the men and kids but girls things here as well.

Binoculars in side shop 70HK. ($9) fixed price.
