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.

Seafood Chinese (in particular, Cantonese while in Hong Kong) cuisine is a longtime favorite, so when friends suggested going to Sai Kung and sampling from the many seafood specialty restaurants, we jumped at the chance. It's not the most convenient place to get to from HK Island or the Kowloon area, but we managed via taxi and made it in... More

Recieved some advice from a staff member at the Granbd Stanford to visit. MTR to Diamond Hill then Bus Route 92. This was a nice coastal area. Fresh seaford of all types being sold from the waterway. Really enjoyed walking aorund here. There are also plenty of other small islands to head off to if you like.

Travelled to Sai Kung for a look around on recommendation of a friend, we weren't disappointed. Train and bus easy to get to and the opportunity to see some more of the island. Worth the effort many seafood restaurants, locals selling seafood from their boats and a quaint shopping section.

It is exciting in the morning as all the fishermen are selling their fresh seafood near the bridge. You can buy seafood from them, and bring it to any of the restaurants nearby for them to cook it for you and enjoy them for lunch. Best to go early in the morning, at around 9-10am.

There are so many places to eat in Sai Kung that are worth mentioning but if your a tourist I would... More

We have traveled by car to this area of Hong Kong mostly, although you can easily get there by bus too. Great seafood restaurants to choose from. It has a market atmosphere. You can also purchase freshly caught seafood from the boats at the promenade walkway

Nice place to go for outings. Green, red minibuses and buses from urban areas, or drive early to get a car park space. Lots of boat rides on offer, so too seafood restaurants offering everything you'd ever want. Lots of dog walkers on the waterfront, so watch out for nasty stuff on the pavement and everywhere.

Lots of the daily boat trip proposed taking people to the close by beach, as well the island ride, reasonable price. In the... More

I went there with family for dinner and I love the area. There are a lot of seafood restaurants right by the water. You can pick your seafood either on the boats or outside the restaurants. They will cook them for you for a cost. They are so fresh and delicious. it is worth the long trip. I took a... More
