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.

That you can buy seafood from the little boats next to the pier and then take it to any restaurant near the coastline to have them cook it for you? It is fun to be able to choose your own food! Perfect for the picky eater ;) don't forget to haggle :)

Sai Kung is located in the New Territories and for sure not as crowded as Hong Kong's city centre, therefore it suits as a starting point to discover that stunning Asian metropolis. There is a coffeehouse in the centre of Sai Kung offering white coffee and croissants for example, so the coffeehouse may will remind you of your European homeland.... More

Sai Kung is a fishing village away from the crowds of Hong Kong situated in on the coast in a lush tropical landscape. Fishermen sell their catch from their boats along the wharf area and many seafood restaurants line the promenade with live sea creatures in tanks ready to be cooked. Just an amazing area.

We always enjoy taking a bus to the fishing village and spending an afternoon or evening in this calmer, old style, fishing and boating area. Love the vendors sea food sold on the pier!

Sai Kung is a very different place from other Hong Kong areas. The atmosphere is very relaxing with a lot of seafood restaurants by the sea side. The seafood are freshly cooked with Cantonese cooking style. Good to spend a lazy afternoon drinking coffee follow by the delicious Chinese seafood cuisine.

The best location for foreigners seeking to experience Cantonese seafood at a high level and in a clean environment. If you eat three things in Hong Kong, this must be one...dim sum and BBQ pork are the others.

So different than Central HK. I discovered this on my fourth visit to HK and got totally hooked to it. Food, ambiance, crowd, beach - sai kung has everything and a lot cleaner than central HK

Strongly recommend not to travel in the noon, better go after sunset, otherwise find some nice café along the pier. We took more than an hour to reach Sai Kung by green minibus. A long ride from Kowloon side, but it worth after see the seafood street. All the giant seafood and shellfish placed at the tank for you to... More
