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.

Busier than before but still a nice escape from HK

I still like the place although it is much busier than few years ago. It is better to go in weekdays to avoid the very busy weekend times. Be aware of the traffic during the... read more

Sai Kung is a bustling fishing village in the New Territories and its charm lies in its authenticity. Fishing boats, fisherman selling their catch freshly killed for you, vendors selling all kinds of dried fish etc. Lots of expats live in this area and you can understand why. Where I was staying ( in a private home) we saw 50-60... More

Simply stunning and totally worth the trek to reach this beach. We hiked to the beach using route 2 (which is actually quite a work out) and took a boat ride out, such a great experience and I'm shocked that I'm only discovering this side of Hong Kong after having been here more than a dozen times.

The only problem with Sai Kung is have to take a bus there. So far in my opinion, the fastest and most efficient way of coming from town is to take MTR to Choi Hung Stop, then change to the mini green bus. The ride on the mini green bus is an experience. Really fast in my opinion. Strolling by... More

OK but might be overrated. .... Better off going to Stanley Village Beach and Hairpin Beach then Shek O beach. Lamma, Lantau, Peng Chau , Chung Chau Islands are better boat ride alternatives and cheaper and faster to get to

We visited Saikung after getting a speedboat from Sai Wan beach after our hike. It is just a beautiful place to stroll around and grab a beer or glass of wine before heading home. Getting there is easy, get the green line to Choi Hung and then the 1A mini bus or if you are coming from Central it is... More

I specifically like the British Ex-pats who live here as they try to create a little bit of the London they may miss. We were far from crowds and close to nature. I really enjoyed the time here and found it refreshing. If you like nature then I recommend visiting here.

It's easy to get to Sai Kung by MTR and bus. Take the Green Line East to Choi Hung. From there, take green bus A11 all the way to the last stop which is Sai Kung. The journey from TST to Sai Kung was a very pleasant one hour on a sunny Friday morning. Our aim was to try the... More
