Spoilt for choices

Good for those who are interested to buy sportswear and sneakers. But I think is good to understand the market first before going, cos there are too much choices..

I was told this market by the kind stranger that I met at the street. I visited this market twice. They sell fruits, cheap clothing, and most of the vendor has their price sign. They have really reasonable pricing since most of their buyer is local people. If you look for gift then go to this market, but they don't... More

I make it a point to go to Fa Yuen street every time I visit Hong Kong to pick up some new sneakers, usually for myself and as a gift for my brother. They have the largest variety of shoes in the shops here that I have ever seen in one place and a lot of styles that we don't... More

I was curious to check out this shopping street after reading about Sneakers Street shopping article at HK Tourism website. Unfortunately I can't find a single shop on this street that sells sneakers like what the website said. I didn't find any other items there that interest me.

Been here last Friday evening. Cool evening with not much crowd (maybe caused by the demonstration some distance away). There were stalls selling clothing, shoes, fruits, handphone accessories and food stalls. Price seems unbargainable. No crowd and can have a leisure stroll this time.

The image that came up with this is misleading, it is from the neighboring Tung Choi Ladies Market. Sneaker street is a bit of a riddle, so many store fronts and seemingly they all have the same, but sometimes at different prices. My theory, they are all connected at the backdoor to the same warehouse and only sell the illusion... More

This is one market that still operates as it did 20 years ago when I lived here. Cheap bargain clothes for adults and children. You just need to search through the bins to find stuff. Be warned on weekends it is teeming with people and in the hot humid summer it can become unbearable. A lot of stall do not... More

A lot of stores selling the same brands and models of shoes. We didn't find anything to buy. If you want some standard Nike trainers this this is your street. Limited childrens shoes.
