Why Ladies Market is special ?

Despite its name, it is not only for the ladies, here you will find a wide variety of men's clothing, and just about all kinds of merchandise including small household items, electronic gadgets and toys.


The Ladies Market is located in the Kowloon side in the overcrowded district of Mongkok, although quite frequented by tourists, this has a very "local" atmosphere in what used to be known as the heartland of the Hong Kong triad gangs. It's now a great attraction of tourist to Hongkong.

What to explore at Ladies Market?

With over 100 stalls of bargain clothing, accessories and souvenirs, the Ladies’ Market on Tung Choi Street provides a one-kilometre stretch on which to practise your haggling skills. It gets its name from the huge amount of clothing and accessories on sale for women of all ages; however, with watches, cosmetics, bags, home furnishings, CDs and trinkets also up for grabs, you don’t need to be just in the market for a pair of nylon stockings to find something within its crowded aisles.

1) Agree on a price for a 'non-brand' item (e.g.. ladies wallet or handbag), THEN ask for the under the table branded one....often MK or Jimmy Choo, Hermes 2) Sorry to say this, but you have to be BOLD here. I've had my wrist grabbed. I firmly say "please do not touch me". Walk away. Do NOT agree to 'sit for 2 minutes' while they go get a colour for you- it could be 15 minutes, and the stall two over probably has what you're looking for! 3) They're ARE deals to be had here, but it takes some practice. We buy our replica watches in Thailand, but I've heard they have them here, but again, you have to ask for "the good ones" and IF you pay $30 USD for a watch, IT WILL NOT LAST a week. You have to pay around $80-100 for the good ones. I've had a few beautiful ones that have lasted a long time. 4) HAVE FUN!! It's a colourful, lively, place like no other Asian market. This is Hong Kong!!

2 mins walk from Mong kok MTR station. It is a big street with shops on both sides. Good place to buy leather bags dresses ornaments and toys. Bargain to get a good price. They usually quote 10 times the original price when u enquire. I enquired a leather bag and a girl offered me 350 dollars but i finally got 5 bags from her for 500 dollars. All leather bags are of good design and good quality. Sometimes the area becomes very crowded. U will need atleast 3 hours to come around the area. It is a pedestrian only street. shop keepers use aggressievness in their sales tactics and if you walk away, you'll find that they will grab your shirt and pull you back. some even plead if u bargain but never mind them.

Bargain! They won't let you leave unless you buy something and every time you try to leave the price will go lower. And if they finally let you leave - that means that's as low as it gets - take it!
