14: Night time shops in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is much more than the malls and the luxury goods extravaganza that you will most likely see as a tourist. Below is a small selection of different shops during the evening. Vegetables, dried goods, Property, you can buy it all in the short hours after work where people can be people again.

Kowloon City shops

The store in the forefront is a real estate agent. These always open untill very late with the real estate agents standing around in their suits looking like gangsters.

Kennedy Town

This is one of the first photos I took with my camera, the lightning isnt great but I still think its a nice photo somehow. I dont think many young people nowadays know what to do in these shops exactly. Usually you can smell these shops before you can see them.

Vegetable store in Wong Tai Sin

Corner shop in San Po Kong

Next to this corner shop is a vegetable shop that sells produce from the family farm from Shanxi

Kowloon city

The lack of street lightning in the older districts gives the street a real atmosphere as each shop serves as a lighthouse.
