Join us for our Free Central Walking Tour as we meander through the narrow streets of HK to see some cool sights. You’re looking at one of them right now. In this photo, you’re actually looking at a Hong Kong Home Depot (hardware store) and we call them 五金, which literally translates to “5 Gold”. The “5 Gold” they’re talking about is hardware metal materials made of gold, silver, copper, iron, and tin.
Now, some “5 Gold” shops have branched out to also include household supplies, such as brooms, garden hats, gloves, etc.
