The fish market is down the street of Kong Lung Seafood Restaurant where we had a great lunch. The market is amazingly clean and well run. Better than a visit to most Aquariums. There are the biggest crayfish I have ever seen; and I have seen big ones! Worth a visit!

You really need to know what to expect when arriving at the fish market - its quite an explosion on the senses, both sight, smell and sounds! It's probably good to go with someone who can advise you (we had a business colleague with us) who can negotiate and ensure you arent ripped off. Everyone is keen for you to... More

Of course, the shopkeepers aren't going to be the most pleasant of people. You wouldn't be pleasant if you had hundreds of tourists walking into your shop every day, looking at stuff but never buying anything. That aside, there was plenty to see, although it does get repetitive after you've seen the general categories of animals on sale -fish, turtles,... More

In other words they will rip you off if you let them. In the middle of day, stalls are full of fish, restaurants empty, you expect truly unique Asian experience but what you get is something like really fresh meal at Red Lobster. Alas, gone the days when this probably was worth going there and telling other people. I don't... More

This area of town smelled BAD. There where people selling fish as pets as well as tanks and other supplies. There were also fish and other seafood sold to eat AND pet shops that sold dogs, cats, rabbits etc. we walked around at night and it made for some cheap entertainment.

This was a nice lazy Sunday afternoon trip for the family. We took the MTR and then the local ferry to lei yu mun,or three family village (Sam kar chun). The ferry ride was part of the fun - very rustic and off the beaten path. We really only went there for the sights. I am savvy enough to know... More

Great place to eat with friends and/or low key business associates who are tired of trying to find American food in a foreign city. My best experiences have been with friends who live in in HK and know which restaruants to prepare the seafood you select. It's great food and defnitely a fun experience w/out putting oneself into harms way.... More

You can point what kind of seafood you are gonna have since they keep them alive. It taste rich and after that experience you will miss seafood.

For those who comes from a land-locked country and have never seen a life fish or life lobster, the Lei Yu Mun Fish Market would be most interesting and an eye opener for them. Started as a small market for fishermen to off-load their catches on the eastern shore of Kowloon, it has been discovered by the locals, buying seafood... More

Make no mistake if you don't like seeing fish or for that matter any sea creature in tanks waiting to be eaten that the fish market os not for you, but if you can park your concerns and understand that this is Hong Kong culture that get absorbed into this fabulous little fishing village. The sea food I would suggest... More
