We were in the area (near Flower Market and Sneaker Street) so thought we would head over and have a look. As an animal lover I was a little upset at the thought of these fish being stuck in tiny bags in such hot weather but it seems to be the norm here. Definitely felt sorry for the turtles which...

My daughter and I spent our last two hours in Hong Kong with a quick stroll through the fish, flower, and bird markets. It's a unique sight to see and worth a few hours if you are seeking something quite different.

There are so many pet fishes here and the price is so low that you won't believe. Black ghost knife fish is only $2 Canada where back in canada is $25 each if you can find one. Also filter, air plumbing everything is cheaper but all 220v so not for north America. It is a must visit place if you... More

It is easy to catch the MTR to this local and visit the Golfish, Ladies, and Bird market all in 3hrs. You won`t see much different than other countries with markets but the high concentration of each type is interesting. The goods at the ladies market are better quality and cheaper than the touristy night market. The night market is... More

Goldfish market is a good place to have a look around. There were many plastic bags containing fish for sale hanging up in the shops. There are number of pet shops with great cats and dogs in them and a number of pets we wanted to take home :-)

We did a tour of the local markets including the nearby flower market and bird market, so we visited this one as well. Stalls of mostly goldfish, hanging on the wall in bags. Reminds me of winning a goldfish at an amusement park in the US when I was young. We saw mostly fish and turtles, but the whole concept... More

I don't think I've seen anything like this. Spectacular and cruel all at the same time. All sorts of animals are for sale in bags/cages far too small for their need. Nevertheless interesting to walk around if you can get past that. I wouldn't go if you are an animal lover.

I was curious to see this and the nearby street that had birds but they are both, sadly for the animals, nothing special - especially the birds. Bright colours, various species of fish and others like turtles, snakes, cats and crustaceans are all crammed into the stalls/shops along this street. I didn't see anyone buy anything although I didn't stay... More

This small area where shops selling all sorts of fish in plastic bags and from aquariums is certainly interesting and sums up the unique nature of the street markets in HK. There are shops selling all sorts of fish related accessories and many of the clientele are clearly enthusiasts but you may find so many fish kept in these small... More

This is one of the strangest things I have seen in a while. Hundreds of small bags of fish in all colours, shapes and sizes hanging out the front of stalls lining the streets. Turtles of all shapes and sizes, frogs and other strange creatures for sale. Kids where intrigued, I was left wondering why? We stumbled across another market... More
