The Goldfish Market in Mong Kok, Hong Kong, has no time for that. This street market which spans a few blocks of Tung Choi Street North, has racks and racks of goldfish and tropical fish hanging in their makeshift ponds, waiting for you to pick them up like baggage claim.
There is not just goldfish either. You’ll find exotic friends of Nemo, baby turtles, and even tiny seahorses.
The markets in Mong Kok operate daily, and really come alive at night. There are nearby flower markets and bird markets too, but nothing is quite as intriguing as the Goldfish Market.
