Keeping the streets of Kowloon bustling after sundown is the Temple Street Night Market. Also known as “Men’s Market”, Temple Street is famous for its large offerings of men’s fashion wear. Temple Street is the smaller and less rowdy counterpart of the night market in Mong Kok, but it is no less interesting with its many shops lining the streets hawking apparels and authentic Hong Kong cuisine.  A good thing to keep in mind is the presence of ‘secret stalls’ hidden in the back streets in case you are in the search for more shopping options.
