A SHORT VISIT TO TEMPLE STREET NIGHT MARKET

Hong Kong, Day 3 - Temple Street night market.

Upon returning from Macau, we made our way to Temple Street. We had a dinner appointment near Temple Street. We were early and to spend the time, we took a walk to enjoy the night market.
The gateway or archway to Temple Street.

Noticed the clean street.
The street closed to traffic and was crowded with visitors.
Popular eatery - fully packed to the brim.

All shops fully lighted up.

Eateries enjoying good business.


Aha! I saw my favourite fruit - Durians!!!

There were many brightly lit stalls selling all kinds of things. I took some photos but they didn't turn out well.

We did not try any of the food here because we were keeping out tummies for our scrumptious dinner.

On our way back, we noticed that this place was still packed with customers.
Direction post.

Linking to Good Fences.

The LORD directs the steps of the godly.

He delights in every detail of their lives.

Though they stumble, they will never fall,

for the LORD holds them by the hand.

(Psalm 37:23-24, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. Hi Eileen, durians are thorny fruits and they have a very strong odor. Durian lovers love the strong odor but others find it too strong for their liking.

    1. Hi Mun, we didn't ask the price because we didn't buy any and we think they are Thai durians. I love our local kampung durians.

  8. I would have loved to roam around this market. You're right. I've noticed how clean everything is. No trash just discarded. I wish folks here were as good about keeping things clean as they are where you are. Amazing.

    Have a fabulous day Nancy. ☺

  14. I always loved the markets, but the night markets were special (and some areas were not quite safe). You captured the atmosphere of them pretty well. I wish I had been there with you!

  15. What neat shots of this market all lit up at night. Looks very festive and I can see they have roped fencing to keep people in proper lines. The Spicy Crab place sounds yummy.

  20. It looks as busy at night as in day time and I imagine it's cooler at night. I've seen durian fruits but have never tasted them. There are many different species and they are very costly.

    I love the entrance arch to Temple Street. Very remarkable. thanks for the photos. It's like a visit to a place I'll probably never visit and I appreciate it very much. Thanks you Nancy.
    Hugs, JB

    1. The durians are fascinating fruits. They have strong smells, some may find them pungent but they are very delicious. You will have to taste them to know whether you like them or not. Have a lovely weekend!
