Graham Street Market

Hong Kong

This busy street market has been providing Central Hong Kong with fruit, vegies, tofu, duck eggs and all variety of fermented beans and sauces for nearly 200 years. Graham St has been in peril for some years, but urban authorities' plans to replace it with hotels and apartments are moving extremely slowly and, for now, this remains one of the most convenient places to see Hong Kong street life in action.
