24 July 2009 - On our first night in Hong Kong, the guys [Bebe and Lo] were super nice that they took me to Mong Kok Ladies’ Market just to make me even happier. From the hotel, we went to the nearest MRT station [Mass Transit Railway] which was only a five-minute walk, took the train and ta-dah - 10 minutes later and we were in Mong Kok.
Walking to the Ladies Market from the MRT station was horrible. The signs were in Chinese [of course] and the locals were too shy to communicate in English but we got there somehow.
First night in Hong Kong and I was in for a treat! Awesome!
Just a few steps away! I could already smell shopping!
Signs oh signs. Sighs oh sighs!
The Ladies Market is located on Tung Choi Street, Mong Kok and is open daily from 12 noon to 11.30PM.
Where to start? Which ones to get?
Stalls everywhere! People everywhere! Busy! Busy! Busy!
Although I am a self-proclaimed shop-a-holic and it was my first time to visit the Ladies Market in Mong Kok, I did not panic buy. Three dresses and a pair of flip flops were all it took to make me feel satisfied [Thank you Bebe for paying]. Oh, plus Lo purchased two bags for me! Thanks Lo!
If you are in Hong Kong and checking out the Ladies Market is in your itinerary, make sure to wear comfortable clothes. Do not forget to wear a pair of good walking shoes too if you do not want to end up in pain. Do not be shy to ask for a great deal! You know you want one! Remember to NOT go shopping overload unless your luggage can accommodate your purchases.
