My children thought it was fantastic checking our all of the different Gold fish, trying to out do each other with the most different and best colours. Along the street there are also other pet stores with puppies, kittens and turtles Definitely worth spending an hour or so walking up and down both sides of the street.

It was quite a sight to see so many walls filled with Goldfish in tiny bags. Then you'll discover the reptiles and turtles. Lots of signs saying no photos and I expect its for good reason as a lot of the animals would be illegal to own in most countries. I felt a bit sad for some of the larger... More

As I've never seen before, hundreds of shops or boxes displaying both marine and freshwater (in plastic bags), healthy and some rare as we do not see in american or european markets, and low priced. Needless to say the fresh are raised in captivity, and some marines (Nemo and may be Doty), also. Vendors were very professional and tough to... More

Apart from goldfish you'll encounter turtles, cats and dogs. Most animals are in quite small spaces so not really pet friendly. Take the MTR to Prince Edward and walk south towards the Ladies market.

We walked around on the morning of our last day as part of a self guided walking tour. It is exactly what it sounds like - a street where lots of vendors sell goldfish. Go with that in mind and you'll enjoy it.

We visited Flower Market first and couldn't find our way from there. Returned to the train station and followed the signs which brought us to the right exit. When U will start to see a few fish shops, the real goldfish market will be on ur right across the road. U will see a refuse collection Centre in between the... More

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.
