Cat Street is a block from the Man Mo Temple and I would combine a visit to both, Cat street is lined with Asian antique and junk stores, In addition there are a number of kiosks selling the run of the mill tourist trinkets. Not overly exciting. Hope this helps.

I really liked this little market, I bought the chopsticks for myself here as a souvenir of Hong Kong and I bought a lot of little nice things, bowls and spoons, teapots and cups. I am very happy about my shopping here.

Lots of antiques in a somewhat flee market like setting with stalls in the street. Good alternative for the much more expensive antique shops that are just around the corner. Nice to pick up a souvenir.

Friendly vendors though the stalls were mostly same-same- reproduction items which I've seen in similar markets across other parts of asia and even the middle east. If you're in the area then of course wander on through though I'm not sure it warrants its own exclusion.

Mostly antiques odds and ends and not worth a visit. Don't bother! Mostly for locals I think and not people visiting.

This is one of my favorite places in Hong Kong. I have found and purchased more than 15 lucky Japanese ceramic cats in the various shops on this street. Each cat is a different size, different condition and different color. I found them all by chance. They are not always available so you just have to get lucky on a... More

Good place for an exotic souvenir....not everything is genuine but you might be lucky to pick the dragon or Jade of your trip....Go there after 11am and before 6pm.

On a recent "nostalgia" trip to Hong Kong (last visit in 1994) I have to say that my time one Saturday visiting Ladder Street and Cat Street was a total waste of time. Ladder Street was not picturesque and the aging Man Po Temple was very dingy and dusty showing a level of neglect that was sad to see. It... More

Tucked away to your right as you walk west on Hollywood Rd, this is a small lane with some shops and shacks that claim to sell antiques. We don't know how to tell the real thing from fakes when it comes to jade. So we stuck to just curios that we could have in our living room. And we were... More

Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
