We set off from Nan Lian Gardens, getting the bus from across the road (outside the chi lin nunnery entrance). Bus ride was great and took us through soe beautiful spots. Arrived in Sai Kung which has all sorts of places to eat - including a McD's. We hired a Sampan for $400 for a family of four for two... More

Sai Kung is out in the country side of Hong Kong. Its about 30 minutes drive from Tsim Sha Tsui. In "downtown" Sai Kung, there are many seafood restaurants on the water. The big ones have huge seafood display with live fish, shrimp, lobster, clams, snails, eels etc. The most impressive are the giant garoupas. On the weekend, there are... More

Get a cab to Sai Kung. Its just easier. Stock up on food and drink at the local stores at the pier and then head out to your junk trip. Its an experience not to be missed. I can't vouch for the sea food because I didnt get the chance to try it, but many people recommend it.

Situated in the New Territories, a train and bus ride away from Hong Kong Island, Sai Kung is a place bustling with life. It is possible to take a two hour-long walk that takes you from the old Chinese Hong Kong to residential areas in which 'ex-pats' or Westerners live. At one end of the main commercial district is an... More

Sai Kung is worth the trip. Great seafood. Fresh as you can get.Amazing tanks full of all types of seafood out the front of seaside restaurants. The town is also interesting to walk through and look around. Take a wonder through locals food market.Its a bit wet and smelly. But worth the look.

This is a place mainly for locals although very touristic. It is out of the well-known touristic mainstream but if you have time its worth a visit. Very nice sea-side place where you can get boat trips and even diving (although HK is not the place for diving ...). Many restaurants with seafood around.

The trip to Sai Kung was filled with wonderful sceneries. Rows of shop houses along with a splendid selection of fresh seafood. Prices were reasonable. we have 6 tasteful dishes of fresh seafood at an estimated SGD90 . Worth the visit

We stayed in Sai Kung (Lung Mei village- dragon's tail village) for two months and we enjoyed every moment of it! Sai Kung is the gateway to the most beautiful country parks in Hong Kong. Almost entire Sai Kung area is a country park. We did so many hikes out of here. There are buses and ferry out of here... More

We visited Sai Kung in June. Sai Kung is a small place and it don't have much things except there were many seafood restaurants. The price was quite expensive and the food was ok. There were not many shops or place of interest for tourists. I won't go there again if I were to visit Hong Kong.
