By the name itself, the street is undoubtedly named as Goldfish Street. Reason being there are a lot of shops selling marine lives, especially Goldfish. There are many types of Goldfish being sold. Not only ample of goldfish in plastic bags hanging outside the shops, there are plenty of Goldfish kept in the aquariums inside the shops too!

If you want to see something different then go there and do the other market, such as the flower and bird one, near by. However not sure if I like it or not. My emotions are mixed. Interesting, but feeling sorry for the poor fishes stuck in the bag, not sure how healthy they are stuck in there. Also some... More

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
