The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighbourhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
"Sweet temple and surrounding peaceful square in middle of concrete HK"
reviewed 1 week ago by AFoolForTravel
Sweet temple with a large shaded square surrounding it off Public Square street. Lots of people siting and resting on benches. Oddly is it surrounded by multiple street vendors MANY of them selling sex toys! Interesting juxtaposition. ;)
Yau Ma Tei Tin Hau Temple is a nice temple in the busy area. I love a little park in front of the temple with big trees. Sitting there was very pleasant and relaxing.
Get there by MTR Yau Ma Tei Station Exit C, walk along Man Ming Lane to Temple Street.
It may be only small but it is quite verdant and shady. Suprisingly it is quite hilly also as you walk in the paths. It's quite near to Austin station and not that far from Kowloon Park so if you plan it right you can walk through both.
You can skip this square. Except for a few shops and couple coffee shops that's it.
I personally find this area a bit untidy. You can also see dried meat and susages hanging from some shop windows.
If you are looking for shopping u can try elsewhere.
Great food, good price. I went 2 times on my last 2 days of holiday in HK, because I liked the food that much. They even adapted a dish. I wanted a Madras curry, but did not want to have chicken. No problem, they made the madras curry dish with a mix of all kinds of vegetables.
DiM DIM SUM, small store in Jordan is located at the corner of Man Wui St and Man Sing St. It is a simple room with small tables, so sometimes we have to wait to get a table or to share a table with others.
When we arrived, it was 10 in the morning so we were immediately able to...
Got there at 7:30pm on a Thursday and the place was beginning to fill up. Was lucky to get a table for 3, but there were queues as we were leaving. So can get quite busy, which is normally a good sign.
The wonton noodles is their speciality, I ordered the rice noodles instead of the normal egg ones. The...
I herded the whole family towards Kai Kai Dessert not once, but twice when we visited Hong Kong earlier this year. I wasn't even aware that time that this place was featured in the Michelin guide 2016.
I've always loved Cantonese soup desserts. Kai Kai is a family-owned eatery that has been impressing both tourists and locals for over 40...
We ordered the scallop congee and the texture was very smooth and flavorful. We ordered Chinese cullers and a plate of fish skin. The latter turned out to be raw which was unusual for us.
Good place for a bowl of congee.
Hong Kong bedrooms are usually very small, so we were pleasantly surprised to arrive and see a well equipped perfectly acceptable room in a good, quiet location. The staff were excellent and its very close to the main (Nathan) road with Temple Street Market 10 minutes walk away. Bakery and local shops very close so we found it easier to...
Perfect place in HK, and the view is so nice.
I want give a special thank for IAN for his hospitality ! He was very gentle and helpful. wonderfull rooftop bar.
Location is ideal, close to subway and temple street, all facilities.
Good location; a quiet building, no sounds from adjoining rooms; friendly and helpful staff; good breakfasts and free computers in the lobby. Also free storage of suitcases while taking a side trip to Macau. All in all a nice place to spend a few days.
A very convenient hotel with many pluses. Jordan MTR station right at your doorstep and wonderful shopping and dining outlets all around the vicinity. Considering the prices of hotels in Hong Kong, room rates are very reasonable and the service levels are very high and professional. Every request was looked into and suitably taken care of. Kudos to a very...
I paid for the premier suite at a costly last min deal(‘slash’?), hoping to have a peaceful staycation.
I spotted the construction site(there is also a tennis court nearby) and managed to secure a room on the other side. Alas the other side there is a fire station. The sudden siren every time fire engine/ambulance arrive/exit is definitely not pleasant...
