Sham Shui Po

A working-class neighborhood where you can find affordable clothes and electronic gadgets. The place is known for its Flea Market, but explore the nearby streets to discover wonderful attractions that embody the rich Hong Kong culture.

Sham Shui Po is in the heart of Kowloon district, so there are a lot of commuting options. For those who will ride the MTR, take the Tsuen Wan Line and alight at the Sham Shui Po Station. There are also several bus routes from Central, Shatin, and Hong Kong Airport.

Budget-friendly shopping at Sham Shui Po

The Flea Market in Pei Ho Street is one of the most popular destinations in this area. As its name implies, you can find new and second-hand goods here. The peak hours of the Flea Market are from 5am-7am and 10pm-12am. The district specializes in clothing and electronic gadgets, but there are also some shops that sell Hong Kong knick-knacks on the streets.

Beautiful rustic vibe

Sham Shui Po may have an older-looking facade, but it doesn’t make it less beautiful than the modern buildings of Hong Kong Island. The rustic infrastructures, hidden antique shops, restaurants, and winding alleyways are worth exploring. However, the streets can be busy and confusing, especially during the peak shopping hours.
