Sham Shui Po might be one of the older and more rundown districts of Hong Kong, but don't let that keep you from visiting, because the place is busy with life and activity. There are some nice markets and stores to visit here if you like that kind of stuff. And if you are looking for an electronic bargain, then... More

Sham Shui Po is a very old district in Hong Kong. Usually selling some cheap clothes, electronic products. But better come at day time because of safety.

If you're looking for the hangout of the locals, this is a must-go. Replenish on the electronics/clothes/buttons/charms you need if you are a hands-on person! Around the area there is also amazing porridge and goose rice/roast house.

Things here are cheap but it is really a case of you get what you pay for. Electronic gears seem to be cheap but tend to be of older models. Things in the market stalls have poor or damaged packaging - I would struggle to bring them back to people as gifts.

This is the place for Electronics, Groceries, Textiles and all that you can name. I went there in the morning and the locals are there to purchase their groceries. It was such a different feeling from the commercialized side of Hong Kong. Do head there if you would like to get a feel of how the locals work/ shop.

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

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
