Sham Shui Po is how Hong Kong markets used to be. Situated in a working class district of Hong Kong, the streets of Sham Shui Po are known for selling a vast range of goods, mainly electronics and fabrics. A shopaholic's dream, the selection of goods on offer here is truly astounding, and with so many shops and stalls it can feel a little overwhelming on arrival.
The flea market in Apliu Street is a chaotic jumble of new and second-hand computers, mobile phones, hi-fi equipment, and other electronics. The equally chaotic clothes market on Cheung Sha Wan Road is where fashion designers come to rifle through the wholesale fabrics on offer. Have a rummage through the piles of fabrics and clothes yourself and remember - most vendors will expect you to haggle so don’t accept the first price you’re given!
Most of the shops and stalls in Sham Shui Po are open from 11am to 7pm on weekdays.
