Here is the real Hong Kong life relaxed and far away from the daily life. Easy to reach by Taxi or Public Transportation. Weekends are crowded with HK Residents from Hong Kong Island or Kowloon. Good Seafood restaurants at the promenade which may be a little expensive - calculate HKD 1500 - 2000.00 per 4 persons (with lobster dish)

A lovely fishing town near to the MacLehose trail. Didn't stay there but a good place to get the connections to and from the trails. Looked interesting with a sea front area, jetty and shops and restauarants

Hire a sampan and head out to the sea arch. It's beautiful! Enjoy a lunch in Sai Kung after a morning out on the water. Go before it starts to get cool.

Very nice village at the new territories. Go there if you want to try fresh seafood. Also you can find very nice and empty beaches in this area.

A lovely area by the sea with a village feel and some superb seafood restaurants. People are friendly and more relaxed than in the big city. Sai Kung is another world and thoroughly worth the journey there. Go on a weekday if you can to avoid the weekend day trippers.

We drove up, got the boat across the bay and took a fine walk over the hill to the beach on the far side. Magical stuff

If you have time, it's worth a visit just to see the onboard fish markets at the main piers and to hop on a boat for a visit around Sai Kung Country Park. Sai Kung country park is full of little islands and beaches. If you walk around to the second bay you can rent at a very reasonable price... More

We recently visited with locals who were able to tell us a bit about the temple to the fisherman, the local restaurants and that buying fish directly from the fisherman's boats is cheaper! Only if you can speak Cantonese though - otherwise there will be a lot of pointing and hand gestures. Thoroughly enjoying seeing all the goings on off... More
