Top ways to experience Seafood Street and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
How to get there
  • Sheung Wan • 2 min walk

The Dried Seafood Street is a local name for section of Des Voeux Road West in the Sai Ying Pun/Sheung Wan area of the city. Here you can see wholesale and retail shops lining both sides of the street, dealing in all manner of dried seafoods and related sundries that are typically found in Chinese seafood markets. The shops are well lit and there is a noticeable aroma as you walk from one shop to the next.

Note that foot traffic can be heavy in this area of the city so be patient if you want to see the food items up close. Also keep eye open for various Chinese herbal medicines and tonics that can be seen here and back south on the intersecting and curved Ko Shing Street (Medicine Street).

You can easily spend 30-45 minutes walking this particular street market, taking in the sights, smells and as many photos as you like. Another interesting way to see the Dried Seafood Market is by way of the local Ding Ding which passes along this street very slowly because of the traffic. If you have an upstairs seat you can watch the market on both sides while enjoying a better vantage point.

Other interesting street markets also worth checking out in the area including the mentioned Ko Shing Street (Medicine Street), Bonham Strand (Gingseng Street) and Wing Lok (Bird's Nest Street). These are all worth checking out collectively if interested.

There are rows of shops selling the dried seafood like scallops , abalone, mushrooms , and bird nests to name a few. The location of these dried seafood is in Hong Kong island. You can board the western market tram towards Kennedy town and the journey takes like 15 min depending on traffic . You shd get down 2 stops before western market.. be prepared with the high price offered. I believe there are equally good range of dried seafood in other parts of the island such as markets.

compare prices between the shop as there are around 100 shops around this area that specialised in dried seafood like dried scallops, sea cucumbers and dried mussels.

This is a really cool. If you want to immerse yourself into a culture, this is one place to go. I have never been to a dried seafood market. We had the benefit of a guide who shared with us how many of the items were used in easter medicine.

Would definitely recommend this stop in your trip to HK. Doesn't take long.

Seafood Street is full of old shops selling mostly dried seafood and salty fish. Special place on Hong Kong Island.

With the opening of the western district MTR line at Sai Ying Pun, coming here is now a breeze. You will find rows of shops selling dried seafood and sausages, they are closed on Sundays.

Just caching a whiff sends you salivating.

The best dried seafood at a fair price. Dried scallops, squid and alted fish are the staples.

If you want to pick up some bird's nest as a gift, and you don't know anything about bird's nest, don't buy here.

This street has many items that you would buy if you use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TMC) I enjoyed looking at the items. Some of the things in jars are rather wild. it is near the seafood street.

This is a large collection seafood stores mainly selling dried seafood matter. Look in many stores to get the best before you buy. Some stores focus on one or two items most have a wide selections. It is interesting to see items that you may not have eaten before. It is worth the trip even if you are not a seafood consumer.

It was pretty cool trying to figure out what everything was. I think they had every kind of fish dried that you could think of.
