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.

We took the MTR to Choi Hung station and minibus 1A all the way to Sai Kung town. Along the way you get to see lots of greenery and even a yacht club. It was raining so we didn't get a chance to take a boat ride to the surrounding Islands. The view was very nice along the promenade. We... More

Sai Kung offers a quiet, relaxed, and great cultural experience away from the city. Close enough for a day trip. Chueng Kee and Hung Kee restaurants offer an awesome outdoor dim sum breakfast. Walk along the bay, on the pier and see the fishmen at work. Good shopping and wandering through the back roads! The light bus is easily accessible... More

Sai Kung is my absolute favourite place to hang out in HK. It has everything one needs. From Starbucks to paisanos, Subway. I love going to Sai Kung on a busy Saturday afternoon and soaking in the sun. :)

Was there on 17 Jan 2015. Take a MTR to "Choi Hung" (Rainbow in Chinese), exit C2 and take a mini bus 1A all the way to the end. The bus journey is less than 30minutes and cost only HKD8.40. Octopus card can be used. Saw quite some fishermen selling their stuff from their boats. Did not try buying from... More

Nice fishing village in Sai Kung country park. Loads of seafood restaurants where the fish and prawns are swimming around in the tanks until they hit the wok. Additional bonus of shopping to salt fish and dried shrimps along the waterfront, direct from the fisherman and women. A bit crowded at weekends but still a nice place to go, especially... More

Sai Kung is the place to go if you want to get away from it all, unfortunately everyone seems to have the same idea and the public areas are always packed. BBQ is the order of the day and its a fun way to pass the time watching the locals trying to get their charcoal alight. You can buy fresh... More

I took my children here in December and it was good. Good to get some fresh air and there were a lot of street hawkers. They all make nice jewelry and stuff. People were walking their dogs and riding their bikes. We tried the seafood there but it was kind of expensive but seemed kind of fresh. It is good... More

I live in Hong Kong, and have not yet said no to a hike in Sai Kung with friends! We were just there this afternoon and though it was a bit hazy it was a lovely day. Plan on an all-day hike, perhaps followed by dinner in Sai Kung town itself. Bring plenty of water; I found that only two... More

The choice of live seafood is good but the price is very high and expensive.The seating is not too comfortable. However, the walk outside the restaurant along the water front is very pleasant.

Allow travel time of about 2 hours to get to Sai Kung if coming in from Hong Kong island. Get off from Diamond Hill MRT and board bus number 92 to Sai Kung Peninsula. From there, buy a ticket from ferry operators there for island to see picturesque shorelines and small, mostly uninhabited islands. Alternatively, take bus 96R for Wong... More
