Sham Shui Po

Sham Shui Po

Barrier-free Index+(★*0.5)

It’s easy to get fully loaded when going to a traditional old town like Sham Shui Po. It is like the witness of history of the daily lives of grassroot in Hong Kong. Unlike other highly commercialized area, there is no all-alike shopping centre in Sham Shui Po. Vistors can enjoy the vibrant energy in varieties of stores, and you will have a better understanding of the energy and human value that can only be found in grassroot citizens.

Comment:

For visitors taking the MTR, exit at exit B2, walk along Pei Ho Street, go through Tai Po Road through a tunnel, then turn to Berwick Street and head towards the direction of Pak Tin Street and you will arrive at Mei Ho House. There is a rather big ramp that may require wheelchair users to ask for assistance.

If wheelchair users want to go to 1stfloor from the ground floor, they need to ask security at the site for the elevator.

Fuk Wing Street (Toy Street)

There are dozens of toy and boutique stores on Fuk Wing Street between Nam Cheong Street and Pei Ho Street. Some stores provide retail and wholesale businesses. This is why it is named “Toy Street”. The sides of Fuk Wing Street are quite narrow, and stores mostly have one step at their entrance, making it difficult for wheelchair users to enter. Visitors can only shop along the stands on both sides of the street.

Apliu Street (Electronics Street)

Apliu Street

Also known as “Electronics Street”, Apliu Street is a famous “flea market” in Hong Kong, with vendors from stands on both sides of the street selling all sorts of electrical components, audio products and second-hand goods. There is enormous number of products in such a low price. You can definitely find what you like if you spend the whole day at Apliu Street.
