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.

Great for day trip on the weekend. Quite another flair than the big city. Some decent beaches close by where you may relax, then in the evening you may go to one of the numerous seafood restaurants in town. They all have an unreal selection of fish and seafoods. I am getting hungry just thinking of it.. The place may... More

Great place to go and get closer to nature in Hong Kong. In the morning before noon time can go there is people to buy those fresh seafoods from those fishmongers from their boat. It is fun to see how the transaction is be done. After, take a walk along the promenade, to enjoy the sea breeze and lastly, to... More

Coming from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong Island a drive to Sai Kung is like a day on vacation. We went on a weekend and the promenade was full of people (showing off their dogs) and stalls where you can buy souveniers, organic produce etc. When you walk along the peers you see the fishermen selling fresh fish,...

Be there before 12:00 noon and pick any one of the restaurants and order a special lunch deal for 2 or 4 and you will be rewarded with a sumptuous fresh/live seafood meal of you choice for half the normal price Try to avoid going there during the weekends. You can book a trip sailing around the nearby small islands... More

It is a lovely place to visit, no high rise buildings,little streets full of interesting shops, market stalls, fantastic fish restaurants, plenty of seats along the sea front where you can watch the fishermen selling their catch.

Here, there are a lot of restaurants where I can order one's favorite dish from with a choice of a fish and prawns, a shellfish by oneself. You may taste seafood of genuine Hong Kong if you postpone a leg a little. You arrive by bus by taxi in around 30 minutes.

Stopped here on my last night before heading home to the U.S. This is a quaint little fishing village,reminiscent of the old days. There were actual fishing boats here, selling seafood to the locals. The variety available was amazing but also very colorful. There are several restaurants on the pier,all showcasing their live seafood and encouraging you to look. Huge... More
