Learn some more about birds at the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden
At the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, you’ll catch some elderly men with their pet birds lounging around. It’s a perfect place to get to know more about bird breeds and species as you’re surrounded by bird sounds and chatter between the owners. You’ll have a taste of traditional bird markets, gardens and good insight into this age old cultural quirk! Come during the early morning, and you’ll see bird lovers taking their birds out for a walk.
Bring your game on at a board game café
Looking to spend some time off your screen? The Jolly Thinkers café offers over 300 board games (including role-playing, detective, strategy, war, and party), suitable for two to ten players! If you’re not sure of the game rules, the staff will happily assist you with the games. Sit back and relax in this quaint little board game café, where you’ll easily get lost in the selection of games you can play.
Have a traditional and thorough Hong Kong shopping experience at Allied Plaza
Allied Plaza is known for its “cube stores”, where you’ll be able to buy goods from Japan, Korea, or around the world. There’s a chance that you could bargain for these items, so bring your confidence and see how low you can get the price to go! It’s a nostalgic place for older Hong Kong residents, as Allied Plaza is similar to the small vendor shops in an older and traditional Hong Kong setting.
Looking to catch up on some reading? Visit My Book Room
My Book Room is easily one of the biggest second-hand or used bookstores in Hong Kong (in terms of space), and every nook and cranny is filled with volumes of English and Chinese books. Visitors agree that it’s like a magical and out-of-movie type of place, as every inch from floor to ceiling is filled with books on every imaginable subject.
