Travel Hong Kong Haiku - Shopping In The Alleyways - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Hong Kong alleyways
we too are caught between
the old and the new

Hong Kong alleyways
in between the peddlar's junk
an old favourite CD

Hong Kong alleyways
we go go up and down
the past and present

Hong Kong alleyway
down the stairs empty handed
and up with two full bags

(Hong Kong alleyways
some of them are actually a pathway of stairs where people sell their things. You go down this side and may have to climb up at the other end)

Hong Kong shopping
we clink and clang
through the alleyways

Cheung Chau Island Shopping
i carry an old porcelain
like a child

Cheung Chau Island Shopping
in the alleyway too
a woman selling herself

Hong Kong alleyway
fallen in love with Three Statues
at the side of its entrance

The heart and soul of Hong Kong lies amid its bustling street markets, ranging from the famous Stanley Market on Hong Kong Island's south side to the shop-lined alleys of Western District to Kowloon's Night Market, where you'll find China's must-buy designer knockoffs. Combine shopping with a harbor cruise by taking a one-hour ferry to Cheung Chau Island, where the main street market offers Chinese ceramics, rattan goods, and traditional foods
