I can’t really say that this is one of my favorite markets in Hong Kong, but since it’s close to the Hong Kong flower street market I also take them to see the Bird Market. It is, after all, part of the local culture.

 

What you can expect to see are a lots of birds. Thousands of them in all types, form and shape, stuck in tiny little cages waiting for the Hong Kong person who would kindly rescue them from this hellhole.

The Hong Kong government website introduces:

Yuen Po Street Bird Garden is a Chinese-style theme park. It occupies an area of about 3000 square metres and is bounded by Boundary Street, Embankment Road, Prince Edward Road West and Yuen Po Street, with its main entrance facing Boundary Street and another entrance facing Yuen Po Street. The Garden was built by the former Land Development Corporation (LDC) (now known as the Urban Renewal Authority) at a cost of $29 million. Construction of the Garden began in March 1996 and was completed in March 1997.
