My brother-in-law took us to a seafood restaurant in Lau Fau Shan tonight and although I had lived and worked in HK for several years, I had never been to this waterfront area of seafood stalls and restaurants, which also has a steamy and (nowadays) smog-obscured view of Shenzhen. I think one earlier reviewer had it right with the suggestion... More

We went to Lau Fau Shan at the western end of the Yuen Long District on Christmas day. The weather was overcast, so we could not enjoy the famous sunset views. The skyline of Shenzhen was shrouded in smog, as so often..... But the Lau Fau Shan fish market is interesting and has kept the atmosphere of yesteryear. Not nearly... More

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....
