The Markets and Tin Hau Temple.
Originally posted Monday, March 29, 2010 on my blog News From Italy
The next morning March 3rd we started to properly explore the amazing city of Hong Kong. We were to walk many miles during our stay and we started our tour using a useful little book 'Hong Kong Walks', a useful addition to our own Eyewitness and Lonely Planet guides.
We visited the Flower Market, Bird Garden, Goldfish Market, Jade Market, Ladies Market (misnamed as not just for ladies but selling a vast array of items at bargain prices). Also Shanghai Street one of the city's oldest where kitchenware shops mingle with those selling Chinese style wedding clothes(more of weddings another time) and a Tin Hau Temple.
I will leave the photos to say the rest and remember if you want to see more take a look at LindyLouMac Flickr Photos
Mong Kok Flower Market
The Bird Garden
Owners take their birds with them to the Bird Garden for an outing, it is also a market for all bird related purchases.
Even live food!
The Goldfish Market
The Ladies Market
The Jade Market, where yes I did buy a little something from this lady.
Tin Hau Temple
No photography was allowed inside but to finish off, here are a couple of the ones I took in the garden.
These trees are amazing and we were to see many of them during our visit.
