Ko Shing Street is basically in parallel with Queen's Road West. It starts at Queen Street (皇后街) in the east and Des Voeux Road West (德輔道西) in the west. But the street is in the form of an arc.

In a city where the ancient and the modern effortlessly co-exist, traditional herbal remedies are anything but alternative. One in five medical consultations in Hong Kong are with practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine; an approach to healthcare that has developed over 5,000 years.

Ko Shing Street is the heart of the wholesale herbal medicine trade in Hong Kong, and its dispensary employees have earned a reputation for being highly knowledgeable. But you don’t need to be carrying a shopping list of exotic ingredients to get something out of this place; a mere stroll down the street will expose you to the sights and smells of ancient remedies that provide a tangible link between Asia’s world city and its distant past.

Around 1890, Ko Shing Street was made wider by a Hong Kong businessman Mr. Lee Shing (李陞先生) when he invested to build houses at the Queen's Road West. Since this street is located behind Ko Shing Theater (高陞戲院) which was also built by Mr. Lee, the street was therefore named Ko Shing Street.



Thereafter, because the Nam Pei Hong (南北行) i.e. Bonham Strand (文咸東街) and Bonham Strand West (文咸西街), had been saturated, the medicine suppliers moved to Ko Shing Street. Ko Shing Street was therefore called 'Medicine Street'. Today, Ko Shing Street retains as a distribution of Chinese herbs and dried fruits.



Most shops have been established for more than fifty years. They are professional and experienced. There are numerous kinds of merchandise to be displayed in the shops.



Since there is monopolistic competition, or most merchandise are quite similar or close in quality, price competition among the suppliers results in more reasonable price.

Most items are marked with price, there is lower probability to be cheated by the shops.






Chinese herbs are generally cheaper here in Ko Shing Street than those sold in other districts in Hong Kong, since the distributors are in Sheung Wan.



Ko Shing Street is also called Medicine Street (藥材街).
