Yau Tsim Mong is a district of Hong Kong Free Enterprise Zone.

In Yau Tsim Mong, the streets are packed with people and market stalls. It's a district consisting of three towns that is dealing with a rising crime rate and an influx of refugees. Mong Kok has the highest population density of all the neighborhoods in Hong Kong, full of high rise tenements where the spaces in-between the blocks are crammed with virtual and physical advertisements. Known for street markets full of knock-off designer clothing and local electronics (not all of which are counterfeit) which are sold at ludricously cheap prices.

The neighborhood of Yau Mai, which is not as densely populated is the location of a "poor mystic's market". The Triads are increasing their recruitment in both Yau Mai and Mong Kok. Occassionally a turf war breaks out in those neighborhoods. Triad-back operations involved in counterfeiting, extortion, and pickpocketing are common. Tsim Sha Tsui, is a cleaned-up neighborhood that is an extension of the corporate culture. Full of hotels and restaurants it's the premiere tourist town in Hong Kong. It's residents try to keep the refugees and crime at bay.[1]
