One of the busiest parts of Hong Kong (and that's saying something), Mong Kok is packed with restaurants dishing up tasty food from all around the world. Korean, Levantine, even Dutch are just some of the international cuisines you'll encounter in this sizzling cultural melting pot. It's also a great place to combine dining out with some sight-seeing and retail therapy. The streets are lined with neon-fronted shops selling all manner of bargains. Meanwhile, the Ladies' Market is the place to go for clothes, handbags and watches – and don't forget to check out the colourful array of exotic critters at the Bird and Goldfish Markets.
