Hong Kong Day Markets: Bird, Flower, Goldfish Street

26 November, 2009

Hong Kong is well known for its colorful array of shopping destinations and this post will showcase some of the most quirky ones in the country.

Located near Mong Kok East MTR Station, Flower Market Road (花墟道) is a street market with lots of flower shops and street hawkers showing colorful displays, the sweet scents and the exotic blossoms of many houseplants. Besides flowers, you will also be able to buy all sorts of gardening accessories here e.g. pots, fertilisers.

With such beautiful displays, this is also a favorite photo-stop for many tourists and what’s really cool is that most shops welcome you to take photos of their shop displays. You will even find signs in the shops encouraging you to do so. 🙂


The Bird Garden or Bird Street (雀仔街) is located further down the road along Flower Market Street.  It is hard to miss – there is a huge mural of birds at its entrance and the high-pitched tunes of songbirds can be heard from a distance.  Similar to the Flower Market, besides different bird species, you will also find many accessories e.g. bird cages, feed here.

The Goldfish Market is another interesting street where Hong Kong-ers go to for all aquarium equipment and fish.  There are many shops and hawkers selling various tropical freshwater or marine fish (not just goldfish).  Besides fish, this street is also home to a number of pet shops.  Just look out for the variety of plastic “balloons” of fishes and you know you are at Goldfish Street.

    Flowers are very stunning to the eyes and the place Hong Kong is a unique city and there are plenty of interesting facts about Hong Kong.

    Hong Kong’s official name is the tongue twisting Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, or Hong Kong SAR.
