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.

Love the large-format photos! haha, Looks like the Bohemian Traveler found a Starbucks amidst the fish stalls 🙂
Thanks Leslie! The Starbucks cups are the only things that not goes with all the photo series. It’s our very first Starbucks due to our friend’s treat. ha! 🙂
@Leslie Bohemian Traveler would like to note that he was “just holding” the Starbucks for his two friends. Drinking Starbucks in Hong Kong he would lose all credibility as the Bohemian Traveler.
Yeah, more accurately, my friend bought two cups of coffee at the airport for us, as a thank you gesture. We wouldn’t drink Starbucks coffee at Hong Kong! Phewww.. 😀
That’s right I bought those lattes.
So glad you found a food market like Stephen wanted!
Looks really interesting -a great place to observe life and to photograph it.
Thanks Kathryn. It was a really good place to observe their life.
Some food looks very appetizing – some not so much BUT all are lovely photos.
Agree… some are appetizing but some are little bit scary. But great spot for photographers!
Great photos! The Hong Kong pasteries were “ta die fur”. I miss them already!
it’s “out of this world”! Mmm… we had milk tart yesterday and it was a whole another world. Miss having you here!
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.
these photos are impressive. I love them and reminds me of the time I was in Hong Kong too 🙂
