Central District, Hong Kong: 117 reviews and 188 photos
Ko Shing Street is Chinese Herbal Medicine Central. "If you got it, we can cure it" seems to be the motto sung by the miracle doctors on this street. WARNING: Animal lovers should steer clear of Ko Shing Street, because it seems that just about every animal is used in Chinese medicine.
Some of the rare ingredients you can find in these concoctions made by the mad scientist are Bear Bile used to cure chronic stomach disease. Buffalo Horn used for fever, edema and convulsions.Deer Antler to increase red and white blood cells, reverse the aging process. Gecko (Yes the small lizard) used to treat asthma, increase sexual activity in men.
Ko Shing Street is a unique look at the Chinese culture, and if you are brave enough, a great place to try some tradiotional Chinese herbal medicine.
