I was there to revisit childhood memories and was disappointed. The seafood wasn't good anymore. Sai Kung has much better seafood. The dock area was very polluted. We couldn't see the sunset clearly and my mom couldn't stay long because of how smelly the water was. We won't go back.

You can walk around the market and buy all kinds of fresh live seafood. Some of which you may have never seen or eaten before. There are also stalls selling dried food and other local delicacies. It's highly recommended and somewhere I always visit when I am in Hong Kong and was a regular visitor to when I lived there.

Great seaview next to the seafood stalls at the end of the Main Street. If the prices of the seafood are not attractive enough, just come here for a stroll in the evening for the sea breeze and sunset.

Lau Fa Shan is in the shadow of a 'Fort McIntosh', one of the fortified police stations that were built in the 1940s to protect the border from illegal immigration. Below are mangrove, mud flats and oyster shell beaches. The linear fish market which noisily descends to the quay where men on boards paddle out to collect oysters from the... More

Many visitor coming to Hong Kong want to try the seafood, there are two places where local people would like to go; either Lau Dai Shan or Sai Kung. I personally like to come to Lau Fau Shan. There are more than 20 restaurants in the small village and most of them are good. Prices are more reasonable compared to... More

This village was an oyster bay turned into oyster farm in the old day. Visitors can still see loads of oyster shells by the seashore. After jumping out of car or bus at its front yard, visitors walking along the narrow walkway will find firstly stalls on the two sides selling mainly dried seafood, preserved/dried fruits and souvenirs for tourists....

This place is not very easily accessible, however, it is worth going on a sunny day, as there aren't many places in HK where you could see a nice sunset with broad view. There are also a plenty of seafood restaurants (and like other seafood places, the prices aren't low but they're okay considered what you get for the price)... More

Lau Fau Shan (“Floating Mountain”) for the un-initiated and weak of heart is a fishing village in the Northwest area of the New Territories of Hong Kong. It was known in years gone by as a place to collect oysters in the brackish water. Pollution has largely changed that landscape (ain’t super-pretty), yet Lau Fau Shan offers the opportunity to...
