A tour in a foreign country is never complete unless one takes a exicting shopping spree and engage in a bit of retail therapy and bag a few souvenirs and gifts to take home and share with friends and family. When in Hong Kong one of the great places to go to engage in local style shopping is the Temple Street Night Market. A bustling bazaar, it is indeed a wonderful shopping place and a confluence of colors and sounds.
There are hundreds of well lit, vibrant stalls, some covering the two sides of many alleys and there is a great selection of diverse items for men in particular. The shops here sell a variety of items ranging from pens, watches, suitcases and bags and luggage carriers, electronic appliances and gadgets to cassettes, CDs, DVDs, hardware and many other things.
It is not just shopping that you can be sure to do there, if you are keen to know what lies ahead in the future when you get back home or to your next destination, there are fortune tellers who are more than willing to do a bit of crystal ball gazing or palm reading for you. Irrespective of whether these predictions would come true or not, you can be sure to feel uplifted and energized and motivated after hearing your future fortune here.
For those who are interested in listening to a bit of music or enjoying a touch of culture and art there are opera singers in some parts of the market who would be more than happy to sing their hearts out to entertain the shoppers who want to hear music than the bargaining.
For anyone interested in visiting this happening market, it is open from 4 in the evening till midnight and the best time to go is after sun set as that is when it truly gets in to its full form. It can be easily reached from many a hotel Hong Kong. Those visitors to the city who are keen on getting closer to the lives of the people in this town it is best to choose hotels in Kowloon such as Eaton Hotel Hong Kong where one can bask in luxury and comfort.
