- Give Up Coffee For Beautiful Breasts
- Losing Weight In A Week With Honey
- Treatments For Vaginal Itching During Pregnancy


  1. Temple Street

    This atmospheric market comes alive at night. Hundreds of stalls are jam-packed by 9pm, offering pirated goods and all manner of, well, junk. It used to be known as Men’s Street, and many stalls still stock less-than-fashionable attire. Venture past the market and you’ll stumble onto a lamplit coterie of fortune-tellers and possibly a Chinese Opera recital. .

  2. Western Market

    The Western Market (in the northwest of Hong Kong Island) is situated in a gorgeous old Edwardian building, but the pickings are slim. Best bet is the excellent selection of antique and second-hand watches on the ground floor. Also a good range of fabric shops, although bargains are scarce. In a former life it housed a meat and vegetable market.

    • 323 Des Voeux Rd Central, Sheung Wan

    • 10am–7pm

  3. Ladies Market

    No designer labels – unless they’re fake. What you’ll find here is inexpensive women’s clothing from lingerie to shoes. There’s a decent selection of jeans, cheap food and knick-knacks galore.

  4. Jardine’s Bazaar and Jardine’s Crescent

    An open-air market area in the heart of Causeway Bay, one of Hong Kong’s busiest shopping districts. All sorts of goodies here, from run-of-the-mill fashion shops to traditional barbers and Chinese medicine sellers. Sample a glass of fresh soy bean milk.

    • Jardine’s Bazaar, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island

    • 11am–8pm

  5. Cat Street

    No, there are no more cats here than anywhere else in Hong Kong. Cat Street refers instead to the Chinese slang for odds and ends. This street and nearby Hollywood Road are chock full of antique and curio shops. This is the place for silk carpets, elegant Chinese furniture, Ming dynasty ceramic horsemen and Maoist kitsch.

  6. Jade Market

    As you might suppose, jade sellers abound – more than 450 of them at last count. Don’t attempt to buy the top-grade stuff unless you’re an expert and know what you are doing. But there are plenty of cheaper pieces to be found .

  7. Stanley Market

    Full of tourists of the badge-sporting, flag-following variety, this can still be a fun place to shop. If you’re not claustrophobic, join the hordes thronging the narrow lanes to gorge on tacky rubbish .

    • Stanley Main St, Hong Kong Island

    • 10am–6pm

  8. Bird Garden

    More than 70 stalls showcasing all manner of songbirds and (mostly legal) exotica, bounded by elegant courtyards, full of old men with white singlets rolled up to bare their bellies (one of Hong Kong’s odder fashion statements). A flower market is nearby.

    • Yuen Po Street, Mong Kok

    • 7am–8pm

    Bird Garden
  9. Goldfish Market

    A popular spot for locals, as a fishtank in the right spot is thought to ward off bad luck. Hook a bargain on underwater furniture with an oriental flavour, or just admire the colourful creatures on show.

    • Tung Choi St, Mong Kok

    • 10am–6pm

  10. Gage Street

    This market is worth a peek if you happen to be in Central but hardly worth a special visit. Lots of blood and guts, especially for early birds. Trucks disgorge fresh pink pig carcasses as squawking chickens ponder their final hours.
