Several blocks from the Bird Market is the Goldfish Market. When you enter this street you feel you have entered an aquarium…shop after shop selling fish. Fish are displayed on the sidewalk in plastic bags. Some shops specialize in aquarium extras like gravel and water plants. Fish play an important role in feng shui design. Many a home in Hong...

This was a "must see" for me, as I have had fish all my life. As with other parts of China/Hong Kong, there are streets, or parts of streets that specialize in a specific product, such as lamps, chairs, industrial refridgerators, etc. This street is mostly devoted to pets and primarily, aquarium fish. Many turtles and tortoises were available for... More

It is very close to the flower market and the bird park. There were a few shops selling fish and accessories for the aquarium. Worth a walk by on the way to or from the flower market and bird park. It does not worth a special trip.

The way pets are handled here (fish in plastic bags, etc.) may upset some people but it was definitely interesting to see. It's basically one short street. Get there by taking the MTR to Mong Kok and exit E2.

Thought we might go and check this one out on the way back from the Nunnery at Diamond Hill. Very quirky spot but worth a look if you are interested in goldfish and other types of aquarium fish not to mention anything else that goes in aquariums/glass enclosures ie turtles, lizards etc. Care to be taken as some of the...

The goldish street is a place where you can buy all kind of life fish. Its somethimes a little bit sad to see the fish in small bags hanging on a wall.

I was fascinated by the street. There were so many fishes on display in bags, as well as inside the shops. Owners did not care that i was taking pictures of their turtles nor fishes. Pets in hong kong are surprisingly cheap. most fishes were going for less than 5usd each. Tanks were ridiculously cheap too starting as low as... More

A stone throw from Prince Edward MTR station, we started with some local off street "delicacies". Then we stroll down the street which carries a varieties of fishes. There are more stores selling reptiles like lizard, tortoise, turtle as well as baby rats, guinea pigs, bunnies. Apart from stores at street level, there are also stores upstairs. Just watch the...

I am on the fence of this place because of seeing the massive amount of fishes in tiny bags for display in hot weather. It was definitely interesting because you would not see this in America. There were buckets of tiny turtles and little lizards on the side and tons of things you can buy your fishes. Some of the... More

We were shocked to see all the fish! Especially the ones in bags hanging on the door. This is something we don’t see in Canada so I would totally recommend taking a stroll down this way and then head to flower market and bird street!

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.
