Apliu St Market, Fashion Wholesale & PC Markets at Sham Shui Po

Far away from the glittering brands like Gucci and Prada that you’d see on Canton Road, at Sham Shui Po you can find the characterful Apliu Street Market, new and used computer markets, fashion and material wholesalers, and more.

The Apliu Flea Market centers on Apliu Street but actually spreads across several streets and is packed with men’s, women’s, and baby clothes in one area, keep walking and you’ll find loads of electronics and electrical gear both new and used. You can find anything from a baseball cap for 20HKD to an electric drill, LED lights, satellite dishes, and many surprising items. It’s not your normal touristy market that’s for sure.

Electronics collectors and collectors, in general, may really like this market as you can find several stalls with old film and classic digital cameras, old watches, trinkets, and pop-culture collectibles. The market stalls generally open from around 11am through to 8pm.
