Top ways to experience Goldfish Street (Tung Choi Street)
The area
Neighborhood: Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
How to get there
  • Mong Kok East • 4 min walk
  • Prince Edward • 4 min walk

...in which you can buy all things aquarium-related...but not much beyond that as a ‘sight’ really. The shops are standard so there’s nothing architecturally striking (unlike the nearby bird market) and beyond the many fish in bags, there’s nothing all that visually interesting either (unlike the beautifully arranged nearby flower market) though for buying fish and related paraphernalia, I presume it’s great. Didn’t take any pics either as it’s mainly a place of work and that seemed maybe a bit disrespectful.

Seeing all the fish is interesting but a little sad. There were some big fish in small bags. And then there is the tiny frogs & turtles that will be used as food, I think. But it is interesting seeing locals out buying them.

Definitely worth a visit to see how the pet fish are bought/sold. There's also multiple pet shops with probably the cutest dogs and cats I've ever seen. Another very interesting thing are the aquarium shops with waterscapes.

Each HK trip is an opportunity to upgrade my tank pumps, or colour strips or both.

Amazing prices in this street although I find the stores on the left (as you walk north) are better stocked and better prices.

We came upon this looking for our bus leaving the Ladies Market. Saw a tour guide directing people into a store that had tortoise as well as fish . Strange that fish are on display in plastic bags . Popular area for locals shopping for fish for their fish tanks.

It was well worth to walk through here at Mong Kok as it is very unusual to see several blocks worth of goldfish /sea creature shops. It is about a 3 block vicinity on both sides of the street on Tung Choi. After you finish visiting the Bird Market and Flower Market-- it will be on your right side.

Tons of assorted goldfish in plastic bags hang from hooks on the shop racks for sale. There are also a lot of assorted sea creatures as turtles, frogs, toads, hermit crabs, etc. for sale in tubs. Difficult to make a decision when there are so much colorful fish in front of you! The excitement is vibrant once the sun sets and tons of people (locals) just enjoy coming out here and see all the action in purchasing goldfish!! There are also pet shops that sell small dogs as well as puppies! Very cute at the windows as they are looking for a nice new home!!
A very vibrant place to come and stroll even if you don't plan to purchase any goldfish. The crowd is lively and the colors just bring out the energy in the street!!
