This nightly market is probably the most stereotypical Chinese street you can think of. Heralded by a temple gateway, the outdoor bazaar is filled with numerous hawkers selling all sorts of trinkets, some local opera fanatics singing shrilly in public and a row of kind-looking fortune tellers ready to describe you the future. Starting from Man Ming Lane near the Yau Ma Tai subway station and running southwards for about 1.5 kilometers, the tourist hot spot provides an atmospheric and cinematic environment for your souvenir shopping and is a treasure trove of T-shirts, tea ware, electronics, watches, menswear, etc. Just don't believe that any of branded merchandise here are actually real. The market gets its name from Tin Hau Temple which is bang in the middle of the strip. Hawkers begin emerging around sunset but the best time to go is between 8-10pm.
- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: From December onwards, Temple Street's stalls are festooned with all sorts of Christmas items at very reasonable prices.
- Best for Shopping near Cruise Port Because: This busy night market is a fun fair of knickknack shopping, street opera watching and Chinese fortune telling.
