A great street to visit if you want to shop where the locals shop

We enjoyed wandering down this street and seeing a market where the locals shop. Its sells lots of everyday things not copy products for the tourist market.

It is full of energy. With plenty to see and buy. Lots of places to eat as well. Next to Mong Kok station so it is easy to get to. It is also close to the MOKO shopping centre.

Fa Yuen Street is located in Mongkok. This is typical Asian street market where you find stalls and shops selling a hodgepodge of foods, clothing, consumables and souvenirs at economical prices. Fa Yuen can be a neat place to visit during the day time hours when the market is active. Unlike the nearby Ladies Market, which targets foreign tourists, Fa... More

Place to visit, just to feel a sense of being in a market and to buy fresh fruits and boiled peanuts!!! Noticed that all prices were marked and similar to other stalls so was relieved and not too worried that I was over paying for items.

This is not something worth planning to do unless you have a high tolerance for crowds (and I mean heavy crowds even by Hong Kong standards), litter, grime, and cheap souvenirs. Not recommended.

My opinion of Hong Kong street markets was that I could get really good deals and will put my bargaining skills to the test. Contrary to what I thought, the vendors were rather rude and really did not have an appetite for any friendly haggling over prices. They had a "take it or leave it" attitude, which ruined the shopping... More

There are a lot of people, if you want that, but for shopping, it's almost all crappy clothes and household goods, clearly aimed at people who don't want to pay shopping mall prices. Not much of a tourist attraction.

There are hawkers stalls along the street. The hawkers sell fruits, clothes, clocks, toys, souvenirs and some strange items. This is the local style of shopping experience. If you are visitors, they will try to charge you more. So, you need to bargain. You can observe how much the local pays to them. Also, do not be attracted by the... More

I attended this market at about 4pm and found a lot of the stalls still setting up. I think attending after 6pm would be greater, The market mainly has woman's bags clothes etc not much for a man to look at, I still think it is worth a visit. I consider the Ladies Market more interesting and much larger,

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
