Photos of Shau Kei Wan Market, Hong Kong

We stumbled upon this market on our way to find the starting point of Dragon back’s hill hiking trail. We got out at Shau Kei Wan station and walked to the bus terminus for No.9 bus. Maybe because it was Sunday, the market was very crowded with people. Looked like we were the only one who were traveling at this market. After hung out under the sky scrapper for few days, this market quickly became one of the most fascinating spots I’ve ever been to in Hong Kong.

Let the photos of Shau Kei Wan Market speak for me.

    Great shots of a fantastic market! I think walking through markets are probably my favorite thing to do when traveling in foreign countries.

    Crazy market indeed, how much a salad costs in $?

      I think you would need to buy it in pieces and assemble it at home to be cheapest in HK. Prepared salads are expensive here about 10 US unless you go to a ff rest.
      Buying the pieces and making your own dressing with vinger and oil would be about 4US.
