A very interesting place to walk through with many types of fish, from small goldfish in bags for kids to stunning marine life and salt water tanks. You can also find turtles, lizards, frogs and other animals for aquariums. Whether a local looking for a small pet or tourist looking for an interesting market to walk through and spend an... More

This is legitimately one of the ''have not seen anywhere else'' things in HK. The part of the street that has the highest concentration of gold fish shops is only about 150-200m long, but color and novelty of goldfish hanging around in plastic bags is pretty awesome to see! The shops themselves store more fish (in aquariums) as well as... More

I was so curious about the Goldfish street and decided that even though it was a little out of the way from Where I was staying I would do it. I actually took the MTR and there were signs and I got information from Concierge before I headed up to that part of Mong Kok. When I found the one... More

The name of this street is because it has many gold fish shops. You may find different kinds of gold fish in this little street. Quite special for tourists.

This area is not only listed in many tourguides, but also the maps in the MTR point out this area. Thus I am very surprised that the shops there have quite an anti-tourist attitude. Which I partially understand, unlike other markets, it is very unlikely that tourists will buy anything here and smuggle onto the plane to bring back home.... More

I was disappointed in the Goldfish st, I was expecting shop after shop with fish, but I found it was reather spasmotic. Also some shops would not let you take photos???? The younger kids enjoyed looking at the turtles and fish but do not go out of your way just to see this st, combine it with the bird market... More

If have seen the high-end shopping malls, and the tourist filled markets in Hong Kong then this is another more genuine side of the city. It's colourful, interesting (especially if you are a fish fan) and safe. The street consists of two blocks, lined on both sides with pet stores focussing mostly on fish (freshwater and marine), some corals, and... More

I love the 'Goldfish Market' as it is commonly called along Tung Choi Street in Hong Kong (Kowloon side). It is a real curiosity and is a busy street great for people watching as well as fish spotting! You get some real Chinese characters here as well as tourists. A great place for the keen photographer and well worth a... More
