Sham Shui Po is known for being one of the poorest (but still safe!) area in Hong Kong and therefore you can find a lot of bargains here (Unlike the touristy Mong Kok where you will easily get ripped off!). As all the other reviews say, once you exit from the Sham Shui Po MTR (I would suggest taking the... More

Sham Shui Po market is a very interesting and lively market. Shops and stalls selling the same type of products are usually in the same area or street, which makes it easier. I went there to look for fabric, the choice was overwhelming and I was not able to find the type of fabric I was looking for but it... More

As a quilter visiting from the USA, I was most excited to visit Sham Shui Po. In fact I came to Hong Kong with one suitcase knowing that I would buy a 2nd suitcase here from the purchases I would make Sham Shui Po ... no joke! I am a senior and I traveled to Sham Shui Po from Hong... More

Stroll along past Boundary Street into Nathan Road ie towards the North end and you will see a different residential area which would not attract the attention of any tourist but you will be able to see how locals get on with their lives 50 to 70 years ago. The air, the shops, the market are all catered for the... More

Despite the fact the SSP District is one of the poorest in HK, it actually has a lot of characters that you can't find anywhere else in HK. Go if u are looking for - * relatively inexpensive electronics items (batteries, chargers, etc.) that you don't mind breaking * cheap toys (may not be the most authentic/genuine) off Fok Wing...

I managed to pick up a few little souvenirs and bric a brac before leaving. I remember you are in asia and bargain hard... and almost any item you see... More

Whether looking for sneakers, clothes, electronics or fabric, this is the place to go. Every street has something different and you can find anything that you want. I found the fabric market and streets to be the most interesting as I have never seen that many nice fabrics, laces, buttons, ribbons, etc in one place. At Sham Shui Po MTR... More

If you are bored with touristy places to shop, this is like the old Hong Kong used to be. This was first on my list when we arrived in November last year. We walked from our Hotel which was the Dorsett Mongkok, rather a stupid thing to do as it was further than I had anticipated, but we found loads... More

Sham Shui Po is the home of high tech. There are a number of malls and mini shopping centres that have the latest technology on offer. In terms of price based on current exchange rates, there is very little difference from South African prices. However, the range is much wider. I was surprised that even some of the clothing shops...
