“Not worth the smoggy walk”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Do not bother.... we were very disappointed. Have seen better flowers in our local florist. Yes there are orchids but big deal. It was just a row of florist shops on a very busy road.

“It's like garden center”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

It is fun to see so many flowers together, but since I don't live in Hong Kong and I'm not attending to buy flowers to take them home. I wouldn't be sad if I missed this street. A big plus for this street however was the animal shop that sold all kinds of exotic frogs, chameleons, and salamanders.

“Beautiful flowers and plants”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Quite a distance from MTR but you will know it when you reached. Bundles of fresh flowers so nice and cheap. Lots if interesting potted plants too. The bigger shops sell an extensive range of equipment, accessories, seeds, etc. We ended up getting some flower buds and DIY kits for children. Great eye opener for those interested in plants.

“Hong Kong Flower Market is a MUST”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Whether or not you enjoy the beauty of plants and flowers, you have to visit the flower market in Hong Kong. The variety of orchids alone will shake you to your core! To see the beauty of this parasitic plant bred to perfection in a variety of colours and hues is just the edge of the beauty of what you will experience. It is definitely a welcome and fantastic break from the crowds, fast pace and hassel of the market bargaining that is ever present in Hk. Even the shop owners allow you to indulge, take pictures and simply enjoy the beauty of creation. DON'T MISS THIS! It's as important as Victoria Peak and the ferry to or from Victoria Harbour!

“Sniff sniff... achooo!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Well not unless you have bad allergies. Lots of colorful flowers can be seen along the myriad of floral shops along Flower Market Road. A good time to visit is early morning (7-8am) when most flower deliveries are arriving and the street is a bustle of store owners prepping arrangements for the day.

The air here is fragrant with a complex bouquet of roses, carnations, lilies, chrysanthemums, tulips etc.

Goldfish Street and the Bird Market are a short walking distance from here.
