graham street market in hong kong


while i was in hong kong, i knew that there was definitely one place that i wanted to visit before i left....and that was graham street market.

i absolutely adore going to neighborhood markets and was very much looking forward to spending some time here.......



i was not disappointed.....this turned out to be one of my favorite parts of hong kong. look at all of this fresh fish and seafood......you know that everything is fresh when the store fronts just smell like water....







there were definitely experiences you don't see in the state-side markets...

check out the umbrellas btw....

there was also a mix of the familiar and the not.......






this is a pic of exiting the market....

walking around the graham street market was like being in another world. this is something that i felt quite often while wandering around hong kong...i kept wondering what secrets lie within the city. i mean...who would think that there would be this amazing market down a side street of this super modern avenue?
