Good shopping area for clothes fashion. Should be all wholesale but a bargain sample can be found on sale.

I wish I hadn't taken the time to come out here - the markets in Mongkok are much more fun, and have better quality and more interesting stuff. I also didn't really feel welcome. It's definitely a slice of local life but there's so many other more interesting things to do in HK.

We had to skip our hotel's breakfast buffet on the day of the Sham Shui Po food tour because it started at 9am, but the places we went to offered a lot of delicious dishes that even after all of the walking, we still ended up waddling back to our hotel at the end of the three hours.

SSP is a great place to go shopping for electronics. On the street there are plenty is stalls selling everything, from computer accessories to used tools. And there are several shopping centers that sell computers and everything else that is electronic. even if you are not interested in buying something it is worth strolling through SSP for a few hours.

This is my second visit here. I made the mistake of come on Chinese New Year's Day last year almost everything was closed. You need lots of time as with everything in Hong Hong space is precious so fabric rolls are on top of one another. I found some pure fine cotton prints for $15-$18 HK per yard. They mesure... More

The streets of Sham Shui Po are full of the daily life that locals live and curiosities for visitors. There's Ap Liu Street with all the electronic bits and Golden arcade for all computer related bits and of course Pei Ho street market, which is one of the cheapest markets in Hong Kong for food and everyday needs. Explore and... More

We went on a whim while waiting for a tour - and now wish we'd gone earlier in our trip because we would have come back! If you love shopping (or arts & crafts) the shops and street markets in this area are a great way to spend some free time.

Much like Akihabara in Japan, so Sham Shui Po is to HK. Golden computer mall is here filled with tons of computer parts, gadgets, and stuff for the techy nerds. Tons of locals selling various other products here as well. Lots of great eats in the area. I highly recommend on those Hot HK days, grab something from "King of... More

Sham Shui Po is easily accessible by public bus and by MTR. It is away from the busy district of Mongkok where things tend to be expensive. Over here, food price is reasonable and items were cheap. There are computer plaza where cheap accessories are easily available at lowest price.
