Day 5 – Temple Street Market 廟街 and outlet shopping

Tin hau temple Nathan roadTemple Street Market 廟街 was accessible to us via the free shuttle bus the Dorsett hotel we were staying. Visiting during the day the streets were empty and saw the location of lively night market that comes alive from 6 pm. Temple Street Market 廟街 is full of stalls that sell household goods.

Tin hau is the goddess of the sea since Hong Kong is surrounded by sea, people pray for protection. There’s even a Tin Hau festival yearly.

The night stalls have dai pai dong (street food) and traders selling all sorts of goods. We saw a public square which led us to Tin Hau Temple. Although there were signs to not take too many photos I managed to grab some of the camera and they turned out beautifully. We brought some incense and burnt and said a little prayer before leaving the temple.
