This is certainly not like any pet shop at home. Several streets jam packed with shops if all sizes and animal of all kinds. Some animals are really packed in. So many fish in plastic bags. But they all looked healthy and in good condition. I took my two young boys and they loved it.

If you are in the area, this is a fun place to look around. Our kids loved seeing all the fish stores. Neat seeing the goldfish bags hanging up for sale. All the fish stores we went in had the CLEANEST tanks-wow! Go in some just to look at the types of coral and fish they have-very pretty. Every tank... More

We went and left quite quickly. It is quite affecting to see animals in glass cages with plastic floors and goldfish and turtles squashed into small spaces.

For me it was not easy to locate the actual gold fish market. It consists of a few stalls selling fish in bags. I much preferred the pet shops selling a variety of pets including cats and dogs The area is not great around here and it's a one stop visit to see and then move one

Lots to see if you're into your aquarium fish and the like but it was a little disturbing to see so many fish and other pets/animals kept in such small enclosures. Turtles, snakes, rabbits, cats, and dogs, you'll find em all here. Like a few other 'markets' it's more shops than market but interesting enough for a look about.

Fish in plastic bags. Overcrowded turtles were a but off putting. The few stores with cats and dogs were the best. Recommend if you have spare time in the city

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!

Animal street market curious but if you do not have many time to visit HK, better to choice another attraction. Mercado de animales curioso pero si tienes poco tiempo para visitar HK, mejor elige otra atracción.

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
