Goldfish street seems like a intriguing place to check out, but once you are there, for me at least, i felt extremely sad to see variety of fishes in small clear bags hanged in rows in almost all the shops. The fishes in multiple aquariums seem to have it better than the fishes in bags. Like I mentioned, its your... More

Pretty amazing market, so many fish and terrapins for sale, and not so cheap. Lots of colourful fish stuffed into small bags or aquariums. Warning - do not take close-up photos of the shops, there are signs warning you

If you are a fan of Siamese fighter fish this is the place to view them at their best - amazing array of colours and fin types, not usually seen in the UK. Go after mid-day as most of the shops are not open until then, evening is definitely the best time to visit. Huge range of aquarium supplies are... More

There are a lot of pet shops and aquariums (gold fish shops), good for tourists and locals who are animal lovers.

Gold Fish Market When you have finished purusing the stalls at the Ladies Market in Mong Kok, a visit to the goldfish market is worth the time. It is located at Tong Choi street near an easy MTR stop (Prince Edward) and a short walk. It is an amazing aray of goldfish, aquarium fish and aquarium supplies of any and... More

My children thought it was fantastic checking our all of the different Gold fish, trying to out do each other with the most different and best colours. Along the street there are also other pet stores with puppies, kittens and turtles Definitely worth spending an hour or so walking up and down both sides of the street.

It was quite a sight to see so many walls filled with Goldfish in tiny bags. Then you'll discover the reptiles and turtles. Lots of signs saying no photos and I expect its for good reason as a lot of the animals would be illegal to own in most countries. I felt a bit sad for some of the larger... More

As I've never seen before, hundreds of shops or boxes displaying both marine and freshwater (in plastic bags), healthy and some rare as we do not see in american or european markets, and low priced. Needless to say the fresh are raised in captivity, and some marines (Nemo and may be Doty), also. Vendors were very professional and tough to... More

Apart from goldfish you'll encounter turtles, cats and dogs. Most animals are in quite small spaces so not really pet friendly. Take the MTR to Prince Edward and walk south towards the Ladies market.

We walked around on the morning of our last day as part of a self guided walking tour. It is exactly what it sounds like - a street where lots of vendors sell goldfish. Go with that in mind and you'll enjoy it.
