Why Fa Yuen Street Market is special ?

Fa Yuen Street Market is a busy market which is primarily a market for locals but has become popular with tourists in recent years. The market runs along Fa Yuen Street from Mongkok Road to Prince Edward Road in Mongkok and is famous for its factory outlet stores with well known Western brands, cheap footwear shops and young trendy fashion.


With over fifty stores selling sport shoes, the street is also known as Sport Shoes Street or Sneaker Street (波鞋街). Fa Yuen (花園) means "garden" in Cantonese. During the Ming Dynasty (A.D 1368-AD. 1644) and the Qing Dynasty (AD 1644-AD 1911), Fa Yuen Street was a place of growing flowers, belonged to Mong Kok village at that time.

Personally a big fan of sneakers. Definitely a place you would want to check out if you're into footwear. Most stores carry the same few brands, however, particular designs go for cheaper than usual (20-50% cheaper, just because) and some stores carry never-before-seen designs that seem unique to HK itself (I'm sure they're authentic, and not fakes). HK people seem to like wearing sneakers a lot too, so you sure will fit in just fine.
