The Temple Street Night Market, once known as “Poor Man’s Night Club” and also known as “Men's Market” is the largest night market in Hong Kong. It is a popular street bazaar named after Tin Hau Temple located in the Yau Ma Tei and Jordan area of Kowloon.  The place is widely used as setting for movies in Hong Kong and is patronized by many people of all walks of life. As the sun sets, vendors blossom along the street setting up their stalls and merchandise. Variety of goods are found at the different stalls in Temple Street Night Market from ready to wear clothes for men and women, textiles, electrical goods, decorations, children’s stuffs, and everything that you may need.

Another must try experience is the tarot card, face, and palm-reading of fortune tellers. Fortune tellers will predict or guess what will happen to your future including your love life, family, finances, and even knowing your past for a few bucks. In addition, Cantonese Opera, found around the corner from the fortune tellers gives historical performances that will entertain you. You can hear them perform usually from 8:30pm to 11:00pm except Wednesday as it is a horse racing day.

The Temple Street Night Market is the last remaining night market and a cross section of Hong Kong culture, cuisine, commerce and society. Strolling and shopping in the street is tiring but enjoyable given the prices are affordable and reasonable for your pocket and the entertainment activities are awesome. And to get to the place, just go to MTR Jordan station Exit A, then walk along Jordan Road for 3 blocks to reach Temple Street Night Market Gate entrance. The market opens officially at 2pm but most stalls start at 4pm and close usually by midnight.
