The energy & business of Mong Kok is captured in Ladies' Market. It has definitely become a tourist trap & in no longer the great bargain that is once was. However, it's still a worthwhile shop. Do remember, it's cash only.

Over the years the Ladies Market had turned from a bargain shopping area to an overpriced tourist spot that locals tend to avoid.
If you don't mind paying a few more extra bucks, it is still a convenient place to pick up a souvenir or two. There are some interesting things to be found.

All the clothes you could want without the oppressive feel of Stanley Market. Don't be fooled by the name - it has both men and women's clothing. Also sells quite a few entertainment (music, movies, etc) knock offs.

Ladies Market is where you can find souvenirs, cheap clothing and kitschy knickknacks. The surrounding area is also great for street food and snacks (for bubble tea, try Gong Cha - it's the best). Bargain *hard* - but also know that it's probably 80% cheaper on the mainland.

Bargain bargain bargain! If you're good at bargaining, you could find some pretty cool stuff for a good price!
Overall it's the atmosphere thats very neat. If you close your eyes, you get so many different sounds in here. Chinese music, people yelling loud, bargaining.. it's just so crazy but it's so HK culture.

Everyone knows Hong Kong is a shopper’s paradise, and while there are plenty of big brands and chain stores available, it is on the streets where things become really interesting.
Bargaining is not as common as it once was and today it is quite normal to see fixed price tags. However, if the store is outdoors, then bartering is generally acceptable – be friendly and make the shopkeepers laugh and this will generally gain a small markdown. Also, if you look like you know what you are doing (aka be confident!), you’ll typically get the best deal.
Stop to refill at the fantastic street stalls to get a true taste of the city – it is known for its food stalls that offer Hong Kong-style street food. These snacks – served out of small stores facing the streets – are a tasty bite for people on the go. The most famous are the curry fish balls, skewered stuffed peppers, “stinky” tofu that tastes much better than it smells, and waffles smothered with peanut butter. Portions are small and prices are low, but most of all, they are delicious and authentically Hong Kong.

If you need to bring souveniers back home, this is the spot to get them from. The selection of trinkets and vendors is amazing but come with small bills and prepared to haggle and you won't believe some of the deals you can get. Everything from luggage to paper kites to key chains and knock-off bags and jewelry. It's fun and starts in the early evening....just take the MTR or a cab and you will be in shopping heaven.

Fancy a trinket from Hong Kong? Well then you are at the right place. You can grab alot of touristy stuff here. (They have counterfeit items too but never on display). Prices are cheaper in Mainland china but if you cant make the journey then come here for a visit!
