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

Ok, so you can't buy then fly, but just seeing all the fish, from the price of a cup of tea to thousands of hk$ Is worth anyone's time. If you are a fish lover, there are brushes, nets, stones, corals ... For your tank. Kids loved all the different types of fish on view.

Goldfish galore! Some in vast aquariums or hundreds individually hanging in rows in plastic bags ready to take away. The colour and variety is astounding. There are pets stores also along this road with dogs, cats, turtles and plenty of reptiles....an interesting place to wander especially if you are headed for the Flower and Bird Market which is all in...
