Piece Goods on Apliu Street

Apliu Street is one of the best places in Hong Kong to buy "Piece Goods", a term still used in Hong Kong but not so much elsewhere to refer to fabric sold by the yard.  Towards the south end of the road, beyond the Maple Street Recreation Ground, are many traders who have for years been selling fabrics.

Woven as well as knitted fabrics are available and wide ranges of samples can be seen outside the shops.

You can purchase fabric by the yard in the shops, or make an order for larger quantities.

This is where Hong Kong tailors and sewers go to buy their fabrics, so you will find much better deals than the more fashionable Western Market in Hong Kong.

Flea market and Piece Goods

The Electronics Flea Market and the Piece goods shops are the most famous parts of Aplui Street, but this important street has a long history and even now is home to a vibrant community.

Look out for the photography equipment shops, and spend some time in the public sitting out areas.

Finally don't miss all the nearby attractions.
