It is a open area with different stalls. I regard it is interesting to walk along and see the cheap items. Not all of them are in high quality but we can't demand much with this price. There are also some shops on the 2 sides with Japanese products.

Great for cheap bargains or souveniers. We found this on the 2nd last day of our visit. Not much of a shopping place though

Not just the usual tourist souvenirs, but a lot of everyday stuff too. Towels, cotton underwear, clothing, bags etc. All usable things that are not throwaway quality. The streets are set wider too since the deadly fire a few years back. The road width restrictions are enforced too.

Overall a good place for budget shopping. However, pls check the quality of the things you buy before purchasing. Do not buy from this shop. The necklace they sold me broke the moment I took it out of the packaging and the salesgirl refuse for an exchange or refund. She had a bad attitude and even shouted at us.

Be swallowed up into the ambience of Hong Kong and the multitude of local offerings as you become one with the crowd. Many local vendors and stores to explore. Travel light and keep your loved ones close since some places get a bit crowed. Overall a good place to take in the local flavor.

Hong Kong has many facets and also many high end areas - Fa Yeun Street feels like China and walking back in time. With small local food stands, shops along the street in an energetic, light filled "alley", it's definitely worth a trip. It can get quite busy so make sure you are paying attention to small children and friends... More

We never went here before, until we booked the apartment on this street. This street is long enough, and has any kind of markets. You can find fruits and clothes market at Fa Yuen Street between Mongkok Road and Bute st. If you go to the other side, you can find Sneaker market. The price in cheaper enough than ladies... More

It is full of energy. With plenty to see and buy. Lots of places to eat as well. Next to Mong Kok station so it is easy to get to. It is also close to the MOKO shopping centre.

Fa Yuen Street is located in Mongkok. This is typical Asian street market where you find stalls and shops selling a hodgepodge of foods, clothing, consumables and souvenirs at economical prices. Fa Yuen can be a neat place to visit during the day time hours when the market is active. Unlike the nearby Ladies Market, which targets foreign tourists, Fa... More

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
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.
