Detailed Overview

The tradition of Hong Kong Night Markets goes back to the early days of the region when it first became an major trading centre under the influence of the British traders. With hot days and no air-conditioning the best time to go out “shopping” was in the evening. Combine the better temperature with the Chinese preference for late night snacking and the idea of having a Night Market was born. Everywhere within the Chinese south-east-Asian Diaspora this has been true, for example in Malaya and other countries with a large Chinese population.
