A couple weekends ago we ventured over to Kowloon to do some exploring. We spent a bit of time at a mall (super complicated – it seemed to be 3 malls that had been joined together. None of the levels lined up, so it was full of short flights of stairs and escalators. It was the strangest thing! It was packed, though, so we escaped outside and wandered around for a bit. We happened upon the Avenue of Comic Stars in Kowloon Park, then continued to the Flower Market and Pet Market.
Next stop: The Flower Market! To get to there we took the MTR to Jordan Station and walked a couple blocks. Braden had been here before and knew where to go. I was expecting small flower stall, but this area was really a couple block of shops all selling fresh flowers, pots, and plants. It was beautiful!
After we were finished wandering through the flower market we visited the Bird Market, which was just around the corner. It was starting to close, so if you plan to visit make sure you’re there before 6pm.
After the bird alley week went to Tung Choi Street to see the bird market. Again, I was expecting an open area with stalls, but this was another street – this one completely lined with pet shops. Many of the didn’t allow photos and shooed me away when I tried but there were a few other things, like really tiny turtles.
So, first Wan Chai Market (if you missed reading about that adventure, catch it here), then Comic Avenue of the Stars, Flower Market, Bird Market and Pet Market. Coming soon…Nathan Street, Ladies Market (yes, Braden went too!) and Temple Street Market. Phew! Don’t need to go to a market for a while…!
