4 Things to do at Mong Kok, Hong Kong

Just 4 places we went to that we feel you should too!

1) Sham Tseng Chan Kee Roasted Goose

This shop will greet you with a display of meat like roasted pork belly, char siew (bbq pork), chicken and so many others. Despite the wide varieties here, we came for one thing only – Roasted Goose (HK$54/ SG$9.80). We arrived at around 8pm and the place was about half empty, which was great because we didn’t have to queue.

It was my first time eating goose and wow was I amazed at how it tastes. The meat was tender and I loved the saltiness of the skin, along with the sauce they drizzled on top. However, the part of the meat that we got was a little fatty and I’ve always like tender meat more.

2) Langham Place

Just a 3 minute walk away from Chan Kee Roasted Goose, Langham Place was probably the biggest and most eye-catching shopping mall we visited.
One thing about this mall is that it’s so abstract and has so many escalators going everywhere, you’ll never know where you’ll end up or which level you’re at.
There are also cafes in Langham Place to relax like Starbucks and Pacific Coffee, before going to one of the most popular night markets in Hong Kong – Ladies Market.

3) Ladies Market

I don’t have to say much about this place because if you’re going to Hong Kong, someone would have recommended you to visit this night market already. After taking a break at Langham Place, take a 5-minute stroll to this bustling market and prepare to shop!

This market sells a lot of ladies stuff (duh) like counterfeit luxury bags and wallets, clothes, cute pouches and souvenier items. As you would expect, since this place has become so touristy, everything here isn’t cheap at all. I would say the prices are considered average only if you bargain.

4) Sneaker Street

Just down the road about a 4-minute walk from Ladies Market is a street strewn with many sneaker brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Timberland. After a while, you’ll notice that the shops will start to repeat itself as they have outlets everywhere, sometimes even one shop apart.

Honestly, you might start to get bored if you try to cover the whole place because almost every store sold the same type of shoes at the same prices too. Plus, they all have the same ‘discounts’ and promotions, so don’t go wasting your time trying to find the cheapest prices.
