The market in Apliu Street (2015)
|Maintained by||Highways Department|
|Location||Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong|
Apliu Street runs parallel to Cheung Sha Wan Road between Yen Chow Street and Nam Cheong Street. An easy way to reach it is to get off at the MTR Sham Shui Po Station. Use the A2 or C2 exit and you will be ascending directly into Apliu Street.
The Cantonese name "apliu" (鴨寮) comes from a village which was formerly located nearby but has long since been buried underneath the urbanization of Sham Shui Po.
Apliu Street has a huge flea market containing electronics, electrical components, and related items. A shopper can find both new and used merchandise in the area. Apliu Street is well known for geek shopping, and at one time it had an unsavory reputation as a "thieves' market".
The shop Kong Wah Telecom (HK) Limited (near the junction of Kweilin Street) was a site of the Detour in the eleventh leg of the reality TV show The Amazing Race 27.
