A more male tech lover dominated area with the techy market and Golden Computer Arcade selling all types of electronics related to computers, phones and more. Most of the stalls at the market and arcade sell the same stuff so you can bargain.

It's just a neighborhood without fancy buildings or attractions, but we came here looking for food & glad we came. Apliu street is here if you are into some street bargains. We had the cheong fun (rice noodle rolls) with mixed sauce (had some sesame sauce in it) for breakfast, and went to the famous budget Michelin starred dim sum... More

A must visit every time when in Hong Kong. Good food, sights and sounds. Nearby at exit D1 of Shum Shui Po MTR, is the still somewhat little known Cheung Sha Wan wholesale fashion street. Apliu street for all the vintage and 2nd hand wares and gadgets. The local Hong Kong culture is still very much alive at this area.

A haven for bargainer. Slow pace than Mongkok areaSham Shui Po Sham Shui Po district does not have the hustle and bustle as the Mongkok district. This slower paced area is a haven for individuals that enjoy shopping for toys and merchandise that are in high demand from movies (e.g. Despicable Me minions, Disney's Frozen characters). Some stores have goods... More

Just across the road from one of the exits of Sham Shui Po MTR is the Golden Computer Arcade. If you are into computing or technology at all this is the place to go. Shop after shop with anything to do with computing. You can't barter there but the prices are very good already. It does get very busy and... More
