Closing Time at Temple Street Night Market

See here for opening times.

While most of the hawker stalls in the Temple Street Night Market are closing up by 11:00pm or midnight, it does depend on what sort of stall.

Being a night market of course most stall holders are expecting to be there late, and many visitors do not even arrive until 10:00pm after their dinner.

Fortune tellers and food kiosks are open the latest, some of them into the early hours of the morning.

The road is a pedestrian way with no cars allowed from 2PM until midnight, but of course there is hardly any traffic after midnight so effectively the road is for walkers during the night.

Get to the Night Market

Visitors and locals alike congregate in the evenings in Hong Kong's last remaining Night Market. The Night Market at Temple Street has been a fixture of the Jordan/Yau Ma Tei district since at least the 1920s and probably before.

Today it boasts market stalls with fashions and accessories, seafood and claypot rice in traditional Dai Pai Dong restaurants, fortunetellers and tarot card readers, and Cantonese Opera singers. Nowhere else in Hong Kong is such an interesting cross section of Hong Kong culture, cuisine, commerce and society to be found.
