Hong Kong’s Ladies Market

Have you ever seen 1km stretch of stalls? Hong Kong’s Ladies Market in Mong Kok,  Kowloon, Hong Kong, on Tung Choi Street has over 100 stalls of clothing, accessories and souvenirs. If you enjoy bargaining this is just the place for you! When you are here feel free to buy anything you need and bargain for a reasonable price if you think the stall owner isn’t giving you a reasonable price or the price that you are willing to pay for. Don’t be disappointed if you get rejected, you can try your luck at the next stall. Just remember not to buy it at the price they first offered you!

Remember to train up your bargain skill before going to the Ladies Market! It will save you lots of money!

The Beauty Of Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Hong Kong has 293 buildings taller than 500 feet which is sixty more as compared to New York City which came in second. What’s so good about Hong Kong? The food and scenery and what’s more is that it is the best city to live in! If you love scenic environments, you have to visit the Tian Tan Buddha. You will have to get there via Ngong Ping cable car. While on the way up there, you will see an amazing view of several mountains.

The Peak is Hong Kong’s highest point on the island. The view it offers makes The Peak one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. Looking down at the city from this famous vantage point provides the best view of the city. Do take note: Do not choose a day with hazy or unpredictable weather as you would not be able to see a single thing!
