One of my best experiences in Hong Kong Choose your live seafood. Pay and the choose a restaurant to cook the food for you. One of my experiences was to ask for my plate to be replaced because the plate was chipped. It became hilarious as plate after plate was rejected by me. Eventually to the amusement of my quests...

I have been to a few seafood places in Hong Kong like Sai Kung & Chung Chou Island. Among these, I would recommend Sai Kung over Lei Yu Mun for the experience and price. Please note that you have to buy your own live seafood from fresh seafood shop and bring it to a restaurant of your choice to cook... More

The fish market is down the street of Kong Lung Seafood Restaurant where we had a great lunch. The market is amazingly clean and well run. Better than a visit to most Aquariums. There are the biggest crayfish I have ever seen; and I have seen big ones! Worth a visit!

You really need to know what to expect when arriving at the fish market - its quite an explosion on the senses, both sight, smell and sounds! It's probably good to go with someone who can advise you (we had a business colleague with us) who can negotiate and ensure you arent ripped off. Everyone is keen for you to... More

Of course, the shopkeepers aren't going to be the most pleasant of people. You wouldn't be pleasant if you had hundreds of tourists walking into your shop every day, looking at stuff but never buying anything. That aside, there was plenty to see, although it does get repetitive after you've seen the general categories of animals on sale -fish, turtles,... More

In other words they will rip you off if you let them. In the middle of day, stalls are full of fish, restaurants empty, you expect truly unique Asian experience but what you get is something like really fresh meal at Red Lobster. Alas, gone the days when this probably was worth going there and telling other people. I don't... More

This area of town smelled BAD. There where people selling fish as pets as well as tanks and other supplies. There were also fish and other seafood sold to eat AND pet shops that sold dogs, cats, rabbits etc. we walked around at night and it made for some cheap entertainment.

This was a nice lazy Sunday afternoon trip for the family. We took the MTR and then the local ferry to lei yu mun,or three family village (Sam kar chun). The ferry ride was part of the fun - very rustic and off the beaten path. We really only went there for the sights. I am savvy enough to know... More

Great place to eat with friends and/or low key business associates who are tired of trying to find American food in a foreign city. My best experiences have been with friends who live in in HK and know which restaruants to prepare the seafood you select. It's great food and defnitely a fun experience w/out putting oneself into harms way.... More

You can point what kind of seafood you are gonna have since they keep them alive. It taste rich and after that experience you will miss seafood.
