An absolute and undisputed shoe haven, the Fa Yuen Street Market, more infamously called the home for ‘Sneaker Street’, is situated at the Fa Yuen Street in Mong Kok between Dundas and Boundary Street of Hong Kong. It is simply a fun and lively street market full of interesting products, endless types of exotic and eccentric shoes that are equal parts flamboyant and cool, affordable clothing, and miscellaneous electronics.
From footwear, accessories, and bags to small leather goods like belts and wallets, there is something for everyone at highly discounted rates making it an unmissable spot for shopping enthusiasts, people with a knack for negotiating very well. Earlier a district for growing flowers (hence the name which literally translates to “flower garden street”), Fa Yuen Street became the present-day shopping hub and came in the spotlight since the 1980s. The market itself ranges for about 1.2 km while the footwear shopping market stretches over 300 meters, lined with over 50 shoes and sportswear selling stalls and shops. All this combined with the vast array of native Chinese food options makes it a definite in the itinerary of anyone looking to explore Hong Kong in its true essence.
