The area
Neighbourhood: Mong Kok
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. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
How to get there
  • Mong Kok East • 3 min walk
  • Prince Edward • 5 min walk

There are two notable markets along Fa Yuen Street in Mongkok. The first is a traditional street market situated between Prince Edward West Road to the north and Mongkok Road to the south. This market is similar to Jardine's Crescent (Causeway Bay), the Wanchai (Cross & Tai Yuen Streets) and others around the city where you are more likely to find locals than tourists.

The Fa Yuen Street Market is fairly busy most days of the weeks and particularly crowded on weekends. Here you will find shops and street stalls selling fruits and vegetables, cheap clothing items, accessories, household products and the likes. During the holiday periods, some of the stalls will have festive decorations. This is particularly the case during Chinese New Year.

The second market along Fa Yuen is known as Sneaker Street, situated between Argyle Street to the north and Dundas Street to the south. Here you will find several blocks lined mostly with shoe shops selling athletic, dress and casual footwear. It is basically an outdoor outlet scene, potentially a good place to pick up a pair of shoes at more reasonable prices than you'll find in shopping malls around the city. Do note that shops are generally selling at competitive prices but don't expect to find much at dirt cheap levels.

Nicer to shop and browse than the Ladies Market. Not as hard-selling and pushy for sales and sellers are more honest and calm.

Have been coming to this street on visits for more than 4 decades. I have seen Hong Kong go through so many stages (some welcomed, some definitely not) and a walk on this street and on the overpass stretching next to it fills my heart with wonders. The Mong Kok district, of which this street is its center,is arguable the most crowded piece of real estate in the world and represents most of what I have loved about Hong Kong so many years. From the extremely rich shopping at the glitzy Mong Kok Mall to the hundreds of Filipinos and Indonesians maids gathering on the overpass every Sunday to celebrate their day off and find solace in each other's company (see attached photos). It is the essence of this city.

This place is full of goodies from
all over asia. From copy bags to trinkets. Along the street are makeshift tents where they sell their goodies. Along the streets are food hawkers where you will enjoy all the street foods of HK.
This place is accessible by train alight the MongKok Station exit E2.

This is a lot less crowded than Ladies' Street and there are fewer people trying to catch unsuspecting tourists with fake watches, etc., but that's because this isn't really for tourists. That also means not as many of the sellers speak English well. My wife (who's from HK) loves to go here for the great bargains. They have shoes, clothes, backpacks/bags, fresh fruits & vegetables, and a few electronics, but not tourist items. If you go, make sure to go up and down the side shops, not just the middle of the street.

Fa Yuen Street in Mong Kok is a great and busy street market for small gadgets, hand bags, clothes, toys , souvenirs and much more. Perfect spot to grab some souvenirs for your mates left at home. As always, be prepared to bargain. It is worthwhile checking other stalls and to compare prices.

Unfortunately there was nothing here that you couldn't buy at the same price or less than in the USA. I was hoping to find some cheap name brand kicks but the prices were nothing to rave about nor purchase. Note that most of the vendors do have a lot of the same product so if you are looking to make a purchase of a specific style & name brand shoe, walk around a bit to see which of those vendors has a better 'deal'.

Looking for good priced articles or clothing. At Fa Yuen Market you can find a lot of it. And if possible you can bargain for lower prices.

My teen son and I went to Hong Kong on a stopover home from China. I think we were a little spoilt in China with the markets, range of good and the willingness to negotiate prices. Fa Yuen had limited range of goods, the quality was not as good as I had previously seen in China, Vietnam and Thailand.
