ask anybody, or any local, and they'll tell you sai kung is famed for its seafood. true, famed it is, but, imho, undeservedly so. why? sai kung's seafood restaurants mostly cater to the touristic crowd on weekends, and this includes the many locals who happen to go to sai kung for a trek, family walk, family outing, … i've had...

Sai Kung is far from the main island of Hongkong. Not many Filipino tourists have gone there. But I had to go there to visit a friend who has been living there for close to a decade. We had to take a train ride from Times St., and we were met by my friend. We still had to drive from... More

Great place to take a picnic and enjoy the sun. it get very busy on the weekends so get there early. The bus ride over is nice and will give you a good overview of life outside the busy Central district.

There are some great places here, but avoid weekends as too busy and do not patronise the seafood restaurants along the waterfront. They are an absolute ripoff, much better food elsewhere in Hong Kong. Try Mui Wo, Lamma island or Cheung Chau.

Sai Kung village used to be a special place to go. Thank goodness it still is although I fear its quaintness in the near future will be ruined through development. Good walks, fresh air, fresh seafood.

Great to see parts of HK that are more remote. Hiking and boating and camping, as well as awild herd of cows to see on Grassy Island!

Took us a little while to travel the distance but it was worth the trek. Recommend strolling through the old town before enjoying your fresh seafood feast!

We used the MRT and local bus to visit Sai Kung with some friends. This is a good break from crowded Kowloon as you can walk around in this suburb very easily. There are numerous seafood restaurants, and some very popular fresh " tanks" of seafood. Don't expect any bargains here, but the food will be very fresh.There are beaches... More

Sai Kung is a favorite place for expat, good seafood and other European restaurants. Get the ferry to the Golf Cource at the Pier run by HK Jockey Club. You could get away from the overcrowded Hong Kong for a day and enjoy the beautiful nature parks as well. So many destination and routes you could choose from Sai Kung.... More
