Experience a slice of local Hong Kong culture and head to the Temple Street Night Market – where you can shop for souvenirs, ‘I love HK’ t-shirts, hair accessories, small toys, Chinese handicrafts, Feng Shui beads, and more. What makes Temple Street a little more family-friendly compared to other night markets is that it’s accessible, relatively small, and comprises of one straight, simple stretch.
The temple-like structure at the main entrance will surely amaze little ones from the get-go! From there, you’ll be surrounded by stalls, shops and restaurants. Most shops and stalls open after 3pm. We suggest heading there before sunset to enjoy the bargain-hunting in daylight with fewer crowds.
Support local (they need our help more than ever now) for small souvenirs and trinkets at the many stalls laid out in front of the shops. You’ll find all sorts of knick-knacks for the kids like watches, mini-pouches, unicorn slime, as well as a versatile selection for grown-ups like paintings of Hong Kong or phone accessories.
For amusing dress-up play with the kids, head to the “City Hair Dressing and Beauty Products” shop, near the entrance from Jordan Road, which houses fun temporary hair-color sprays in red, blue, green and more. Tree of Life on 168 Temple Street offers antiques as well as meditation equipment like bracelets with chakra stones.
Along with shops and stalls are many small restaurants and take-out shops – indulge in snacks like egg waffles or enjoy an Indian meal from Tandoori house.
Let the souvenir-hunting begin and enjoy a day of the local culture at the Temple Street Night Market!
