Lei Yue Mun is a small village located at the east gate of Victoria Harbour. It is famous for its seafood market and restaurants. The combination of fresh seafood and restaurants able to cook the food immediately was a winning tactic.
In 1992, the First Lei Yue Mun Seafood Festival was jointly organized by several seafood restaurants, and its success has made it an annual event.
To see a few different markets in Kowloon we used the “Kowloon Market & Hong Kong History” Walk from the TripAdvisor App. This way it was very easy to navigate through the various streets.
The markets are also known as “The Fab Five” and consist of The Ladies Market, Fa Yuen Street, Goldfish Street, Bird Market and the Flower Market. But the side streets and areas like Nelson Street (which I liked best) are also very exciting. We spent quite some time there to browse and take pictures of this local market life.
Shanghai offers a lot of different kinds of markets.
You can find anything from clothing, electronics, souvenirs or antiques. It is also known for the Fake Markets where you can get copies of famous brands in electronics, watches or clothing.
However walking through these markets is very stressful because every meter someone wants you to come with him and have a look at his products. It’s nearly impossible to just look at the things without people dragging you into their shops, but I guess the cheap products have their price 🙂
