Temple Street Night Market, Hong Kong

Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon
Hong Kong
China's insider take:

This is the liveliest night market in Hong Kong, with 400 stalls selling clothes, CDs, and fake designer watches. When the superficiality of shopping kicks in, you can seek the real purpose of life from fortune-telling birds and face-readers. Impromptu screeches of Cantonese opera are a regular feature, and if you're hungry, a nutritious bowl of snake soup should fill the gap. Visit between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., but be careful about venturing beyond the main parts of the market—some of the surrounding neighborhoods can be unsafe.
