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.

Well worth the visit if you like hiking. Good to get away from the city for a day trip. The restaurants we found all very overpriced.

Most people have this image of Hong Kong of skyscrapers and crowds. To see all of HK, you must go see Sai Kung. It is a fishing village/town. You can get a leisurely 1 hour private boat ride on a lsmall junk from the local fisherwomen for about 250 HKD for a family. You can see the geological rock formations... More

We took a trip to Hong Kong for our Chinese New Year break from the school that we work in and hoping not to break the bank spent three nights hiking and camping around Sai Kung. If you are into outdoor trips like this then we highly reccomend walking section 2 of the Maclehose trail and camping on the beaches... More

not too many people seem to know about it. but if you're in Hongkong and want to see something different, try Sai Kung. It's a lovely place. you can go out on a junk boat or dine in one of the many restaurants. a great little town. parking's a bit of an issue on weekends and as there's only one... More

There are plenty of day tours offer day tour around the island including hexagonal column rocks which are amzing to see. This is one of interesting site to see in hongkong, good for a weekend hiking.The seafood there,however,is not as good as expected.The restaurants just get commercial so the food is not so authentic.

This is a GREAT way to spend the day!!! We took an uber out there. Once there you can grab some snacks and drinks. We had to buy a plastic box to act as a cooler. Then head down to the marina and rent a junk boat. I think it cost us around $100 USD. The boat took us out... More

Good for a 2D 1N trip to explore the area. Some geological treks nearby. Food wise, Sai Kung is as commercialized as any other area. Nothing special in what's being offered. Not the experience you see in the movies where you can buy seafood off the boats and bring it to the restaurants to be cooked.

If you're looking for an easy day trip away from the hustle and bustle of the city then I definitely recommend visiting Sai Kung. It is not reachable directly by MTR and you have to get a minibus from the nearest MTR station but in true Hong Kong fashion, they are frequent and efficient. Once there, Sai Kung is perfect...

Love this place, away from the hectic city, Sai Kung offers good seafood. If you're a kind of adventurous type, you could ride boats do your fishing and eating as well. Worth going.
