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.

Once a fishing village it is now mainly a tourist area with seafood and boutique shops the main attraction. It is possibly the best fresh seafood place in the whole of Asia and these days many tour groups from China come and drive up prizes. Still worth a visit. I usually go very early (before dawn) to have some early... More

This is a nice day-time escape from HK Island or TST. No MTR connection, but easy to get to if you take the KMB No.92 from Diamond Hill MTR Station to Sai Kung. Sai Kung has many things to offer - the East Sai Kung Country Park for good trecking, the Sai Kung Promenade where on many days local fishermen... More

Sai Kung is relatively easy even for a tourist like me to visit using either a regular bus or a mini bus from various areas of Kowloon. We got on a mini bus (1A) from near MTR's Choi Hung Station to Sai Kung. It took us about 25 minutes. It was a gorgeous late afternoon on a week day. It... More

Very different to city. Locals buying fish from boats was fascinating. Needed a local to help you choose from menus.

Different feel to Hong Kong and Kowloon, less bustle and more laid back. Very traditional Chinese village and I don't think it's changed very much for a long time, I remember visiting years ago and it seems the same. There is a big expat community here too, if that's something you are looking for. Well Sai Kung is THE place... More

Sai Kung is a very different place from other HK areas. The atomsphere is very relaxing with a lot of seafood restaurants by the sea side. The seafood are freshly cooked with Cantonese cooking style. Good to spend a lazy afternoon drinking coffee follow by the delicious Chinese seafood cuisine.

We took a bus here and the trip, while long, was beautiful. Once we got there it was a little tricky to find everything but using our phone, we were able to get around ok. There's definitely a full day's worth of things to see and do here. Don't miss the seafood restaurants!

The value and the quality of the seafood out of the aquariums right on the boardwalk was delicious, fresh, plentiful, good value, and above all tasty. The boat ride to the ecopark was clean and reliable, but walking around the bridge to the island that covers up in high tide was full of garbage, plastic bottles, styrofoam chards, discarded paper...

You find Sai Kung quite different than any other seaside town in the world. Hong Kong has such large population and her people always try to find somewhere away from downtown. Sai Kung becomes a very popular place for families and friends. The town could be so busy that you would not believe. But if you explore a little inland... More

I love going to Sai Kung when I am feeling dizzy about my daily life. I have found that air in Sai Kung is extremely fresh and I can refresh myself by going there. I love staying in the pier for watching others' activity. For example, some will do fishing there. People will hang around with their pets. I love... More
