...to visit in Hong Kong, right next to the very popular (and amazing) flower market so it’s worth visiting both if you’re in the area. This particular street market has all the usual stuff to expect but it’s much less busy and manic than the similar markets in Mongkok.

Definitely suggest visitors to HOng Kong spend a fun 1-2 hours browsing Fa Yuen St, Market. It's big, clean and has plenty of interesting stuff, not just the tat that you get from most markets, but some really photogenic and interesting stuff. The odd food stall, fruit, nuts, tea or chocolate, I bought some beautiful candied mango for my sons, and it was far nicer than the packaged stuff you get in supermarkets. Yes, this is another market, but if you're looking for a fun day out, find your way here. It is in close proximity to Gold Fish street, Tung Choi street, and the flower market street, and also the bird market. You can really make a great day of it here. I really enjoyed the pretty polished stone jewellery, the golden chocolates, the gorgeous fruit, Centred in MOngkok we found it easy to get to FA Yuen from the Cordis Hotel near Langham place, just a short walk. Make sure you have very good walking shoes that are comfortable. Not a lot of places to sit or to rest. There is a MacDonalds in the street nearby, in Tung Choi street, where we rested with a cup of coffee for a while,. Not a lot of western style cafes around here. Its a long street, and worth looking both sides and also the shops behind the markets. Lots of fun. Opens around 11am.

More of a local market than a tourist one so no haggling needs to be done. Does not have any touristy gifts but cute and cheap pyjamas, kids clothes and bags. Bought reusable shopping/ grocery bags for gifts.

. . . But probably not worth taking time from an otherwise busy day to visit this junk-filled street market.
