Sai Kung is a small fishing village with picturesque boats, beaches and mountain scenery. The fresh seafood is plentiful and there are many dining options and wine bars along the seaside promenade. A day at the beach here makes for a nice change of pace from Hong Kong.

Beautiful fishing village. A must if you're in town for over five days! The bus ride there is fun and offers some intense views. Travel tip: Board the bus sit on the right side on the upper deck to capture the true essence of visiting Sai Kung.

Great place to see the sea if you want to enjoy the sea breeze. But limited beaches. Lots of tourist. If you are take the small bus with limited 16 seats prepare umbrellas in advance as the waiting area as there is no shelter. The fisher boats selling the fishes will not entertain you if you are only asking for... More

Famous for Chinese seafood restaurants. However, you can also find good western restaurants and desserts. Can be reached by bus and minibus.

Gorgeous way to see HK.As a tourist one never gets to see this side of HK or even expect it. But its a peaceful and gorgeous day out. Take time walk on the beach, eat at the many seafood restaurants..

Sai Kung is located in the East of HK - it could be quite difficult to reach by public transport if you don't have your own car. It's a nice seaside with a nice promenade where you will often find locals taking a stroll and exhibiting their (sometimes overly exaggaratedly) well-groomed pet-dogs. You can go on boat trips to nearby... More

From Mongkok, you can take a minibus from the station at Dundee street (1 end of Ladies Market). The bus will generally wait for a total of 16 passengers before departing. We waited 10 minutes in the bus. The journey lasted 25 mins and cost 16 HKD. The bus journey was actually more interesting than Sai Kung itself traveling through... More
