Worth a trip by ferry or bus - walk through the wet markets and see the huge range of seafood available for purchase. Keep walking up the trails to the top, or visit the Tin Hau temple. Many restaurants throughout the market for dining.

It is a nice alternative to Sai Kung which is famous for seafood. Lei Yu Mun is just 20 minutes from Tsim Sha Tsui. We bought seafood from Wang Lee Seafood 90243836 - the female shop owner was very nice and gave us good advice. Come here if you love seafood.

Lobsters from Australia, fishes from Indonesia, mantis prawns from Malaysia and king crabs from Alaska. Guaranteed fresh and live before they are cooked. If you are seafood lovers, don't miss this place. Prices vary. But a moderate good one costs around hk$600 per person. But comparing with down town restaurants, this place is still value for money.

The restaurants will bring you to a nearby live seafood market to select the catch of the day. We left it to the restaurant to decide how they will cook the seafood and it turn out all to be delicious! It's exactly like what you see on the tourism promotional videos! Locals tell us that there are cheaper and more... More

Here is so fantastic place to enjoy seafoods. There are lots of small fish shop. Visitors select fishes what we want, then we take seafoods dishes in the restaurant located same area. Really fresh and tasty. If you want to enjoy seafoods, you should visit here.

Very dissapointed at the way fish are treated at this market. Large fish in small plastic bags, tall fish swimming on there side because they dont have enough water in there for them, turtles all trying to escape and crawling ontop of one another...not nice for the creature lover and i wouldnt recomend visiting this market

This street is quite near some of the other shopping streets, so we wandered along whilst in the area. There are lots of different types of fish displayed in bags and tanks. Worth walking up and down the street and having a look.

If you run to the fish section of the pet store first, then this market is definitely for you! So many exotic fish to explore easily, and perhaps even pick up some accessories for your tank. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
