Owner description: 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.

Sai Kung is the eastern part of Hong Kong where it's situated around the sea. You can almost always see the sea on the ride into the outer skirt of Hong Kong. It is also the place to go if people want to get away from the City. Sai Kung is famous for its seafood eating culture, local dessert and... More

Sai Kung definitely is worth a visit. It's about a 40 minute bus ride from Diamond Hill MTR station by bus (no. 92). From the pier you have a wonderful view on the sea and its islands. Enjoy a stroll along the promenade or take a trip to the surrounding islands on one of the many boats. Or you can... More

Great place to chillout and take a boat trip to the surrounding islands. It's about an hour from Central and couldn't be any more different. Good selection of cafes and restaurants on the sea front.

Transport is easy from city center, it's a very... More

Hong Kong seems to delight at being totally modern and at the leading edge of any technological innovation. It's tough to find much of the old Hong Kong - Sai Kung is one such place. The alley ways of the old town exude character. Somewhat disappointingly it is getting rather congested with traffic and tour groups, particularly at weekends. Excellent... More
