  • Very interesting street to window shop and peer at all the multi colored and hundreds of varieties of fishes hanging from the racks of shops. Apart from fishes, shops sell puppies and kittens along with small animals like rabbits and hamsters. I found a mobile phone shop selling cheap mobile gadgets (charger plugs, wires etc) and changed my phone's tempered glass protective cover for HK30 as quoted by shopkeeper however upon exiting the shop I realised I could get it for 10-20! 😡
  • My kids enjoy the street very much. So much to see and the pets are rare in my opinion. Frogs, lizards, turtles, ranchus and goldfishes. Some of the shops are located on the second floor so you must be a bit adventurous.
  • It's a treat to see the stores prepare these bags of goldfish if you get there late morning. Will try to check them out at night in the future.
  • Fascinating - a whole street absolutely choc-full of aquaria, goldfish having in plastic bags, and the occasional pet shop. An oddity, but has to be seen. Gets very busy, so go early. Runs down Tung Choi Street between Mullah Rd and Mong Kok Rd.
  • Must must visit! Streets are packed with all kinds of fish and animals. Incredibly cool to see and being in the middle of the busy city life.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
