Catching the train from Admiralty station in Hong Kong over to to Prince Edward station in Kowloon on the mainland, it's a short walk to the Bird market, set inside a small park next to Hong Kong Stadium.
My expectations of the market were that I wasn't going to like being there and on entering my thoughts were confirmed, there were lots of tourists purchasing the lovely handcrafted wooden cages, empty of course, but as lovely as they were I didn't want to support the trade, so after taking a few photo's (with permission) we left.
Afterwards we briefly visited the fish market, and decided to give the animal market a miss, I didn't feel the need to cause myself any further distress.
Yes, I can imagine that is not a good place to be if you are a captive bird. Thank you for joining in with #AnimalTales and apologies it took me so ling to comment - Mad few weeks here!ReplyDelete
no worries, it was a little distressing to see so many birds crammed into such small spacesDelete
