Location: Sai Yeung Choi Street. Hong Kong

Mong Kok is one of the major shopping areas in Hong Kong. The area is characterized by a mixture of old and new multi-story buildings, with shops and restaurants at street level, and commercial or residential units above.

Mong Kok has the highest population density in the world (130,000/km2 or 340,000 per square mile) according to Guinness World Record. The streets are always overcrowded, no matter what time of the day you decide to visit the area. In fact, the Chinese characters of the word Mong Kok literally means “bustling corner”.

The most popular street markets of Hong Kong are located in Mong Kok and its surrounding areas. I highly recommend walking through Mong Kok’s many streets and explore the famous and popular Ladies Market (where you can buy almost everything from iPhone cases to T-shirts and typical Hong Kong souvenirs), The photo above corresponds to Sai Yeung Choi Street, which is full of electronics shops where you are able to find the latest computer, digital cameras and other consumer electronics.
