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. « less

I had no idea that there was 'another' side to HK! (Other than the high rises, bright lights and frenetic crowds.) And this side was so much nicer! A bit out of the way, but using the exceptional public transport systems/bus, we got off at Sai Kung Geo Park for a look-see, then took a 11km circular walk through the... More

if you want to see HK 30 years ago, go to Sai Kung! Most areas are still in ther 1980s other than some new buildings along the water front. No high rises that poke into our eyes and you can see the nature looking into the ocean side.

If you go to Sai Kung. Then visit also the bay of 'Hoi Ha wan'. There you can snorkle (yes the water is clear ad fine and there are no sharks). There are some magnificent coral reefs. But please respect the natural environment if you snorkle there. There are a few reefs, and they like to preserve it. You can... More

Sai kung is a little laid back village by the sea. A great spot to get away from the crowds of the cbd, and the many seafood restaurants in the area have some of the freshest and tastiest offerings around, without the big hit on your wallet you would experience elsewhere, eg causeway bay or kowloon. If you have a... More

A wonderful village on the bay in Hong Kong. The village is charming. The restaurants are great and everything utterly fresh taken from the longest line of fish tanks you will ever see! You can hire a ride on the water and that is lovely. A great place to see!

It was a fishing village in the past. Nowadays, people take the ferry from the port to other islands. We went there on a Sunday. Many families took their dogs out for a stroll. The spread of seafood being offered at the restaurants is eye-boggling. We were told that we might sight some celebrities there but sadly no! We were... More

This is my favourite place in all of Hong Kong. The old meets the new. Fabulous western restaurants and Chinese fish restaurants sit side by side. At the jetty you can hire a boat and visit the islands. I thoroughly recommend Yim Tin Tsi which is being made into a heritiage village. Boats leave on the hour every weekend. Take... More

Sai Kung is still a popular place for expats to live, although a bit out of the way, you would need a car if you lived out at Sai Kung. Is a lovely beach area and the air is clearer too, nice expat shop selling Australian foods and wines at good prices is called "The Bottel Shop", lots of lovely... More
