I loved my time walking along this road which is literally teaming with dried fish shops. The small can be a bit overwhelming and you probably don't want to know what everything is but the sight is amazing and many of the shops are very photogenic but check they allow photos. Also there are birds nest shops and herbalists. Be... More

"Dried Fish Street" is one of the original old Hong Kong areas although all modern buildings now. Stayed at 60 West Aparthotel which is recommended. The sheer number of the DFS on the Main Street as well of many side streets is a real experience. Apparently it is also the focus for wholesale trading too. It's very busy so after... More

If you walk from the Holiday Inn Soho to the Ibis, you will see more dried fish shops than you will ever want to see in your lifetime, maybe 5 lifetimes, so walking further along Des Voeux west is a waste of time, unless you have a lot of time on your hands. There are literally one dried fish shop... More

We love walking through different areas of the city and this area definitely is unique with the smell of dried fish and the incredible types of food you can see and smell along the walk. There are many shops and you can stop, look around and purchase if you are brave. I imagine that this is what old school Hong... More

Walked through here so many times in our stay and each time saw something new and different. With many other roads in HK it is great to walk along and just open the eyes to a different world

You turn a little corner from the temple and antiques area and there you are right in the middle of this little market alley way with the freshest vegetables and fruits and all manner of foods stuff, the likes of which you may not have seen before. All in the vividest of colors! Located on a steep street you will... More
