Bird market in Mong kok

Next to the Flower Market is the Bird Market.

It is called the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden and hence you can guess the location, it’s on Yuen Po Street.

This charming Chinese-style garden is the favoured gathering place of Hong Kong’s songbird owners, who carry their beloved pets around in intricately carved cages.

Here is a close-up of a bird in a wooden cage:

All manner of beautiful birds can be seen here,

as well as a selection of traditional bird-keeping paraphernalia, including these wonderful cages:

The garden contains some 70 songbird stalls as well as interesting courtyards and moon gates. It’s open from 7am to 8pm.
