This was an excellent market full of everything for the tourist and the regular person. I am glad I went on one of the last few days in Hong Kong. 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...

At the exit Sam Shui Po MTR station you will find "fashion street" (clothing stalls along street) and also Dragon Centre at 37K Yen Chow Street which is like a wholesale center. You will also find Apple mall inside Dragon Centre with all the mini shops in it selling mostly items meant for teenagers.

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
