Fa Yuen Street has maintained a wide boulevard to welcome shoppers. The weather right now is made for street markets. Some good stuff in the stalls.

The market is located on Fa Yuen Street and is closed for traffic, so you can take your time going through the stalls. The merchandise offered is anything from small electronics, tourist trinkets and clothing. Definitely worth a visit to see a local market.

We visited Fa Yuen St (or sneaker st) on a recent trip to Hong Kong. It did coincide with Chinese Holiday week so was extremely busy and frustrating. A few words of warning: Go early as the crowds are not so bad around lunch time. They only get busier from then and reach fever pitch by the evening. Be prepared... More

So many stores selling runners. Who would have thought. Lol. Check it out once. The business signs light up the street. There is other night market in the area too for shopping.

I'm a half-Hong Konger so I visit this place more than once a year. Recommended to not only walk the main streets, but also along the pavements. There are many shops selling clothes, food and some gift stores. It is possible to bargain at some stalls along the main road - more often than not, they will offer a lower... More

lots of shops carrying similar items but quality is so so. If U have plenty of time, U will find there are a couple shops that carry better items made locally or in China. Eg the White Garden on the Nathan Road side of Fa Yuen St. closer to Prince Edward Rd. I found some good dresses/tops for ~$150 ea.... More

It is a open area with different stalls. I regard it is interesting to walk along and see the cheap items. Not all of them are in high quality but we can't demand much with this price. There are also some shops on the 2 sides with Japanese products.

Great for cheap bargains or souveniers. We found this on the 2nd last day of our visit. Not much of a shopping place though

Not just the usual tourist souvenirs, but a lot of everyday stuff too. Towels, cotton underwear, clothing, bags etc. All usable things that are not throwaway quality. The streets are set wider too since the deadly fire a few years back. The road width restrictions are enforced too.

Overall a good place for budget shopping. However, pls check the quality of the things you buy before purchasing. Do not buy from this shop. The necklace they sold me broke the moment I took it out of the packaging and the salesgirl refuse for an exchange or refund. She had a bad attitude and even shouted at us.

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
