Kowloon Flower Market

The Hong Kong Flower Market is actually a street, Flower Market Road and it's sidestreets, full of florist and gardening shops rather than a market as such.  However it is certainly an interesting place to visit if you have any interest in flowers at all.  While it is a weak substitute for a European style "garden centre" it is still a riot of colours and pleasant smells (unlike the nearby Bird market) which is quite calming.

Get there by taking the MTR Tuen Wan line to Prince Edward station and then walking about 10 minutes.

Most of the shops are wholesale as well as retail so you will be seeing massive deliveries of flowers and plants.  Things tend to be placed all over the pavement so it can be both interesting and little dangerous, don't get your feet squashed by a big box of flower pots!

During the run up to Chinese New year when there is the huge flower show in Victoria Park in Causeway Bay many people also visit the Flower Market.

The main Flower Market road itself runs alongside the Mong Kok statidum which is used for local sporting events and a children's playground.

Nearby there is the Royal Plaza hotel which is only of limited interest except for the fact that they do a nice dinner buffet in a restaurant called La Scala which, while not as upscale as the name might suggest, is a good dinner.
