Visiting night markets is a real fun. Normally the markets are close to downtown. You can be entirely immersed to foreign cultures, experiencing what the local people do and eat in the busy and crowded areas while they are just off from work or having leisure time.
Unlike other cities in Asia, Hawking in Hong Kong is illegal and there is no regular area for night markets. This is quite strange for a city with globally famous name of Food Paradise. Night market and hawking are a easy entrance for young entrepreneurs where they can do small business and express their talents simultaneously. In a sophisticated society, there should be a range of social ladders for people. However, in Hong Kong, those ladders have been removed piece by piece.
A group of artists, designers, social workers, hawkers and students were organizing a night market amid busy urban center in Mid-autumn festival holiday. People were happy to see such an event next to their homes. Because they could find alternative entertainment and good food with a reasonable price during vacation. But the most important thing is that we could discover what Hong Kong used to be in past decades ago and what is missing now.
