"Haggle, haggle, haggle!" Ladies Market Tip by UKDaisy

Ladies Market, Hong Kong: 45 reviews and 49 photos


This is THE place to go to if you love shopping at markets! There are all sorts of things available here - clothes, stationery, souvenirs, bags, wallets, hair accessories, watches, jewellery - it's a shopper's paradise! But remember, don't buy anything at the asking price, don't be shy to haggle, and you'll come away with some great bargains!

TIP: One thing I tend to do if I like something but want to pay less is to pick up the item, ask for the price, frown a little at the item, and then haggle, at the last moment you place it down slowly (giving them a chance to lower the price). I walk away if I truly don't like it, but if I do like the price, I then say I will think about it and then look around the rest of the stall. I will always have the option to take up the offer later and it gives them the chance to make a last ditch attempt in tempting me by with another lower price.

TIP: the walkway through the market is very narrow, so be aware of pickpockets.

Directions: Follow the signs from either Mong Kok railway or MTR station.
