Hong Kong’s Wet Markets are a fun way to acquaint yourself with the Hong Kong of yesterday, the town that existed here before the sky-high skyscrapers began to surround the traditional outdoor markets.

The city’s wet markets may sometimes overwhelm unsuspecting visitors with strong sights, sounds and smells, but they are a treasured part of Hong Kong life and a must-see for any first-time visitors. Exploring these outdoor supermarkets is a fun way to spend the day even if you’re not looking to buy anything!
