If your traveling partner is not into electronics do not come here with them. Plan to spend at least three or more hours here. This is Hong Kong's electronics shopping market at it's best. Everything you will need in electronics can possibly be found here if you take the time. Parts, parts and more parts. Loved it so much I went back a second time the next day. Thanks for reading.

This is a place you can spend the whole day walking around.

Firstly, when you land at the airport, go to the HK Tourist shop on your way out (you walk past it) and ask for a copy of the tourist booklet for the area. It’s very helpful. Or you can visit their website.

It’s really a place to walk around and feel immersed in everyday Chinese culture. It’s real Chinese locals going about their daily shopping, from markets, to butchers, bakers and fruit and veg sellers.

They have streets where the shops are focused on a particular genre, such as buttons or leather. There’s the big multi-level electronics store called the Golden Shopping Centre with lots of tech and gaming equipment. We bought a few adapter cables which were good and cheaper than here in Australia.

The food was fantastic. So many little local places. We had the best noodle dumpling soups here at Man Kee Cart Noodles (they have 3 cafes on the street). Many people from the city go here to eat. Some places won’t speak English but we found that they just asked around in the restaurant to find someone who could.

The big department store called the Dragon Centre is great too. Nine floors with plenty of shops.

Of HK's various urban areas, if you ask anyone which is the "poorest" district, they are likely to say Sham Shui Po. This may still be true but we know the Government is beginning to direct some development funds here, so until the area becomes entirely artificial (not to worry, it's still a long time off), I am grateful that local residents don't mind me going over there from time to time, shopping, eating, enjoying the less-than-glitzy surroundings. As I write this, it sounds incredibly patronizing but it seems difficult to talk about Sham Shui Po any other way and my intentions are not to be insulting. The area may not be ultra-rich but it has a much better sense of open space (some of it does) than other nearby areas like Mongkok, and if you are out to buy household goods or computer gizmos or just about anything else, it is going to be a heck of a lot more affordable than in Central or probably in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Basically, Sham Shui Po still looks a lot like the rest of HK did 40 years ago, so now's your chance.

We were delighted to see people going about their lives and traditions! The dessert shops, local-style bakeries with Portuguese egg tarts; pigs’ heads and meats on display, markets teeming with activity the hour before mealtimes...so much around the recycling and repair industry: obsolete electronics resold, any kind of mechanical component, esp to repair the ubiquitous delivery cart. Hole-in-the-wall acupuncture, chiropractic, herbal teas...THIS is Hong Kong!

We had walked from Star Ferry to Sham Shui Po, so I include a couple of photos around the Yau Ma Tei area (chopping board specialist) local too, less intense.

BEST part of the city to shop for any electronic or computer items at a reasonable price but don't forgot to explore the local eateries in the neighborhood too!
