HK-Day 3

In the Mongkok area, located in Kowloon Island, you can walk find several famous markets within a short walking distance. This is one of the busiests areas of Kowloon, where you can find young people in their stylish shopping bags as well as the old local women doing their daily shopping. 

We started at the Flower Market, absolutly incredible!! the smell takes over the humidity!! beautiful colors, large variety and great prices! you can find a bunch of over 10 jazmins (my mom's favourite flower) for 12 Hk (about 6 Arg. pesos). You can also find mini bamboo trees and orchids...I really loved this market!

Then, we continued into the Bird Market. It is absolutly crazy to hear hundreds of birds singing non stop! sorry, but it was quite annoying and smelling!! You can buy the cages, birds and its food. The funny thing of all, is that birds are prized by their singing ability, not their plumage. You can find parrots, and grasshopers next to each other...bizarre!

Finally, we walked around the Goldfish Market, where you can find small fish displayed in plastic bags. Also, you can purchase exotic tropical fish, like 'Nemo'!! haha...Kittens, puppies and small turtles can also be purchased. Chinese people believed that fish bring good luck...I guess that exlpains it all!
