Hong Kong’s Goldfish Market

June 17, 2015


Of the three markets, the goldfish market was by far the most difficult to find. I think it’s because it’s on a much busier street that sells many other things besides just fish (and animals). It was a very busy shopping street with all sorts of things for sale. And there weren’t fish shops right on the corner of the street, so I walked right by it. I discovered I wasn’t alone, however, in finding it difficult to find (ha) when I later helped point other tourists back towards it and then that night as I talked with a girl where I was staying and heard that she had tried to find it and had given up. Had I not spotted one lone, tiny fish shop a block or so away and asked him for directions, I don’t know that I would have ever found it myself either. But I am so glad I did. I was delighted to discover that not only are there fish for sale there [all sorts of kinds of fish], there were also puppies and kittens and turtles.




There were boxes full of turtles climbing on each other, poor things. Made me feel claustrophobic just looking at them.

All these fish eyes got a bit creepy.
