Lok Fu Center is a place for cheaper products and local food. The center is located in a public housing estate next to Lok Fu MTR station. There is a large department store in the center as well. Goods sold at the Lok Fu Center are generally cheaper and more affordable than those in other large Kowloon shopping venues.
The Night Market is a collection of street blocks in Kowloon that comes alive after working hours, with street stalls and vendor tables selling almost everything, from Chinese silk pajamas, leather goods to toys. This famous market is located one kilometer north of Harbor City, up Nathan Road. Sellers start setting up their stalls at around 6pm and normally do business until midnight. Bargaining is allowed at the Night Market and a good buy would allow 20-50% discount.
Yau Ma Tei offers a memorable Kowloon shopping experience with neon lights illuminating the nightly sky. The market offers an array of jewelry and clothes within its wide collection of shops.

Tung Choi Street in Mong Kok, also known as the Ladies' Market, is Kowloon's biggest outdoor bazaar and offers a great Kowloon shopping experience. The market sells fake goods and originals. There are shops selling sports products at a very competitive price. The pedestrian zone is mostly for electronic products while other Kowloon shopping malls nearby sell computer products but cater more to locals than tourists. The most convenient way to get to the ladies' market is by MTR to Mong Kok station, and then follow the signs.
Another area famous for garments and clothes is Cheung Sha Wan Road. Travelers can get to the market easily by taking the MTR to Sham Shui station. There are some buses passing through Cheung Sha Wan Road as well.
