Many tourists visiting Hong Kong know that there is a Women’s Market. In fact, there is also a Men’s market.
This is how the market is described in Wikipedia:
The Temple Street Night Market is sometimes known as Men’s Street as it is very popular for men’s fashion. The market starts at 2 p.m. in the afternoon, but is lively at dusk daily. Traffic is closed on the street at that time, and visitors swarm into the street. There are more than a hundred stalls with colourful lights in the market. There are carts bulging with goods from clothing to mobile phones and watches. Stalls have items mainly for men, jeans, t-shirts, pants, lighters, shoes, condoms and men’s accessories. Cheap merchandise is common in the night market. Cheap second hand goods such as cassettes, video tapes, old newspapers, antiques are also sold there. Like in other night markets in South East Asia, prices can always be negotiated by bargaining.
Here is a photo taken by my ex-colleague CP Chan. he has taken the photo from a high level.
From the image, you may be able to see a narrow alley swarmed with people and on either side are the stalls or kiosks.
It is so full of life and colors!
I really enjoyed my time at this market when I was there in March. Nice photo!
Glad that you enjoy it!
Sounds so cool. Looks great. Wish I could visit.
Wish you would visit it one day!
This pix from your friend is very hard to take. He did a great job., thanks for sharing. By the way, it is called men’s street for one more reason …guess what?
I know . . . . all men know about it!
I love markets, never know what you may find…also the colours, the sounds, the smells…so much more vibrant than the dull environment of the average supermarket…
They are precisely the same reasons I love market too!
I love them precisely for the same reasons too!
Such a wild place to explore at night, on crutches! Fun, memories.
I suppose it is difficult to forget this wild place!
At first glance I thought I was looking at a christmas tree made of colorful packages and presents! Only after you mentioned about how your friend took it from a high level, that I saw the real picture. Hahahaha! My brains gone a bit wonky today :p
When my friend sent me this picture, I thought it was a Christmas tree too. The picture is shown full scale so you can see the people in the isle, otherwise, it looks more like a tree.
What an interesting post and great photo – thanks for sharing your friends work.
Many thanks for the perusal and the kind comment!
No, open to every body!
Great pic. Looks and sounds like would be loads of fun!
Yes, it is fun walking that street at night!
Mr Chan did a lovely job with this photo. The angle is so effective.
He certainly has picked a very good angle to shoot!
Wow! What a fantastic photo!
Glad that you like it, Marilyn!
