I have never really seen anything like this! A million fish in hanging plastic bags. Even if you have no intention of buying a fish, it is a really fun place to check out.

The Goldfish Street is the most peculiar of the various street markets found in Mongkok. It is located along Tung Choi Street between Nullah Road (north) and Bute Street (south) and includes two blocks lined by shops, mostly selling aquariums, equipment, feed and all manner of tropical and exotic fish and other aquatic life. Here you will find some fantastic... More

So a goldfish street is a wonderful random Hong Kong thing. There are a few shops scattered along this street with the cute bags of goldfish. I found the bags much more photogenic than the tanks. And the orange/red fish the best for pics. A fun thing that is quite worth doing - especially as part of a Mongkok day... More

A pretty unique and interesting location and experience, the goldfish market has some pretty cool arrangements of fish and aquariums and the intermittent shops with puppies and kittens and bunnies and turtles. It's not the most exciting thing ever, but it's worth a stroll unless seeing the animals in small cages will infuriate you. There are also some great-looking and... More

You have to love aquariums and/or ponds to truly enjoy these shops. Everything you could ever want! They even had freshwater crayfish at one store. And the Koi have certificates of lineage! What fun. The stores that specialize in marine fish have some great tanks set up with lots of corals and other reef creatures.

As a tourist: I don't recommend visiting if you just want to look at the animals, the fish are hung for the practicality of skipping most of the tank fishing in order to prevent their shops from over-cluttering with buyers and to help smaller shops get noticed, for the high-demand, cages, vivariums and aquariums are also crowded which makes it...

Goldfish street is not an uplifting place. As a westerner, we're not so used to seeing creatures being confined to such small enclosures. This street has shops where hundreds of fish are packed into very small tanks. Further down there are cats and dogs in similar situations and the whole thing is just not right!

Store after store after store selling pet fish. They are displayed in tons of clear bags hung on stands on the sidewalk. However, seeing how the staff handle the fish, I'm far from impressed and would doubt the longevity of any of the fish. It was very overcrowded.

The whole street is full of shops selling pets and fish. We managed to find some toys for our dog here. Nice street to explore esp for kids. They are amazed by the fish in plastic bags hanging along the street. However, there is no public toilets around. So its difficult when kids need to use toilets. We always have... More

This block is fine, but perhaps not a highlight worth ones time when visiting HK. Unless you would like to see fish in plastic bags hanging on hooks waiting to be sold, I would spend my time doing other things.
