The cultural history of the Yau Tsim Mong district is rich and multifaceted. From the street food treats of the dai pai dong hawkers in the market streets of Mong Kok, to the buskers and fortune tellers on Temple Street in Yau Ma Tei and the Clock Tower, Star Ferry and luxury shops of Tsim Sha Tsui, the district’s iconic attractions draw visitors from around the world and highlight Hong Kong’s exciting hybrid cultural mix.
