“Many, many gadgets and parts replacements and backpacks!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is a super busy area and for all the big fans of used (refurbished) and new electronics, wiring, cell phones, cables, all kinds of adapters and electrical plugs, tons of trendy and trendy things such as LED light strips of all sorts of colors, super absorbent wash cloths, even cellphone cases.

And these latest gadgets but at a cheap price. Very little bargaining in this area as they are already so inexpensive.
The major draw in to the area is you will find all sorts of electronics parts replacements.

There are also a bunch of other non-electronics stores and street shops in between such as toy stores and backpacks, wallets and clothes at an impossibly cheap price with excellent seaming quality.

The area is very packed and very busy so as always, mind your belongings.

“Apliu Street Flea Market 鴨寮街”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Apliu Street (Ap Liu Street, 鴨寮街) is a large and famous flea market in Hong Kong, selling electronic and electrical goods of all kinds. Though you may not be neccessary to buy some stuffs here, this is anyway a good place to know more about the lives of another group of people in Hong Kong. Or, you may find some newest electronic and electrical goods at very attractive price.

For more photos, you may visit http://blog.yahoo.com/deli-prince-club/articles/33245/index.
I can be reached by MTR at Sham Shui Po Station.

“A fascinating insight into a different side of HK life”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Apliu Street is the home to all manner or electronics shops and a flea market selling related items, from magnets to LEDs to used power tools. It's a small taste of the markets of Shenzhen but in HK. It's fascinating to browse (and buy, everything is very cheap).

For non geeks the surrounding streets host a very local orientated food market, you will not find many tourists here - for me that was the main attraction, to see a slice of normal life - all walks of life are on show here.

An adjacent street also hosts a fashion market.

All in all a wonderful look at real Hong Kong well away from the glittering lights of Victoria Harbour.

“Singapore version of Sungei Road”
Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Will come here everytime we come to HK. This place is not like any other attractions for the tourist as the the stuffs sold here are layout in such a way they look old and used. However compare to the other well.known street markets, the stuffs sold here are much cheaper. There are a lot of electronics stuffs as well as handphone accessories u can choose from. For those looking for toddlers or children clothes that are for home use, you can really buy a lot here at cheap prices. This place is worth to walk around but definitely not for the high end shoppers.
