If you go to Sai Kung. Then visit also the bay of 'Hoi Ha wan'. There you can snorkle (yes the water is clear ad fine and there are no sharks). There are some magnificent coral reefs. But please respect the natural environment if you snorkle there. There are a few reefs, and they like to preserve it. You can... More

Sai kung is a little laid back village by the sea. A great spot to get away from the crowds of the cbd, and the many seafood restaurants in the area have some of the freshest and tastiest offerings around, without the big hit on your wallet you would experience elsewhere, eg causeway bay or kowloon. If you have a... More

A wonderful village on the bay in Hong Kong. The village is charming. The restaurants are great and everything utterly fresh taken from the longest line of fish tanks you will ever see! You can hire a ride on the water and that is lovely. A great place to see!

It was a fishing village in the past. Nowadays, people take the ferry from the port to other islands. We went there on a Sunday. Many families took their dogs out for a stroll. The spread of seafood being offered at the restaurants is eye-boggling. We were told that we might sight some celebrities there but sadly no! We were... More

This is my favourite place in all of Hong Kong. The old meets the new. Fabulous western restaurants and Chinese fish restaurants sit side by side. At the jetty you can hire a boat and visit the islands. I thoroughly recommend Yim Tin Tsi which is being made into a heritiage village. Boats leave on the hour every weekend. Take... More

Sai Kung is a lot of people's (both tourist and local's) favorite beaches in HK and I can see why. It took a long time to get there and it felt like the place we got dropped off was in the middle of no where. If you're a traveler that loves to hike like me, then I definitely recommend Sai... More

Tai Long Sai Wan, I would say, is the best beach in terms of views, accessibility and supporting. It is a 45 mins leisure walk from Sai Wan bus stop. A 4-hr walk within the region would let you feel how great is the area, Tai Long Beach, Tai Long East Beach and Ham Tin Beach.

it's a long bus ride in the dark but this place is great to go out to for a few pre clubbing drinks and dinner and also if you enjoy seafood. Unfortunately I missed the floating markets, however having visited a lot of the lesser known fishing villages know that tere much less touristy and more authentic places to visit... More
