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

Sai Kung is the second largest district of HK. There's some really nice beaches along this island. If you like seafood this is the place to be, it's also very nice picturesque area where you can take some really nice pictures and at sunset I recommend be by the beach - it's a beautiful scene.

Sai Kung is a picturesque harbour village of fishing boats and yachts about 40 minutes drive from Kowloon. Apparently it is a very popular place for locals to visit on weekends because of the fabulous seafood restaurants that line the waterfront boardwalk. I ate at the Tung Kee Seafood Restaurant and the food was sensational. You pick the live seafood... More

the must try is the seafood feast when you are there!!! This is my second time at Saikung for the second time. I would recommend to go at around late afternoon so you could see the changes in the landscape while dining. :)
