Bird Market Tips (20)

Bird Market

The famous Bird Market used to be in Hong Lok St Mongkok but was unfortunately demolished in the latter part of 1997. The tenants were given the option to relocate to a new modern building where the current bird market operates. People in this unique market had been operating businesses most of their lives with their sole income being the selling of birds, cages and feed. The lane was cramped with only room for perhaps 2 abreast to walk down. I haven't been to the new area but I'm sure it doesn't have quite the charm of the old area.

A Chinese Tradition

Hong Kong’s Bird Garden is at once a disturbing and compelling place to visit. On the one hand, it is distressing seeing the large number of formerly wild birds caged and for sale. On the other hand, it is interesting to see the local men bring their caged birds to the garden for “air.” Similar to walking a dog, these men bring their caged birds to the garden, let them sing for a while, and then take them away and go about their business. As someone who prefers to see wild animals in the wild, the Bird Garden really wasn’t my thing. But, it does provide a genuine glimpse into a unique and traditional part of Chinese life. Open daily from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm, the Bird Garden can be found on Yuen Po Street at the end of Flower Garden Road.

Bird market

Well with the disease that you can catch by being next to poultry and bird this might not be a good idea, but i wen there just before the disease appeared in asia, and i loved that market, although it is sad to see them in cages, the birds are beautiful and sing so well...

The Bird Market

The Bird Market in Kowloon's Mongkok District, which is adjacent to Yau Ma Tai, is a delight. It's a place to buy and sell birds and all conceivable, related paraphanalia. It's certainly a wonderful place to buy a superbly made wood or bamboo bird-cage... Some are just tiny; others are gigantic, veritable portable aviaries.

You'll always find plenty of people here; many times you'll see elderly men sitting around with their own birds, which they've brought out for some air and good conversation with old friends. They're as interesting to watch as the kids who are continually trying to pet the little warblers.
