Great family outing for very reasonable price. The Junk boat operator happily dropped us off at Trio Beach then came back for us in half an hour and ferried us back to Sai King. Delightful trip with scenic water views including the floating village. Be...More

Sai Kung is situated at a distance from Hong Kong Island and Kowloon but is accessible by bus. It still retains a strong feeling of its past as a fishing village but now has many old-time as well as ex-pat residents. It has excellent seafood...More

A bus ride took us to this fishing village that have become a residential spot for a lot of expats in HK. So you get both local HK seafood restaurant and international food choices. So why not!

This is the place to go for seafood. Many places rent Kayak and other equipment so that you can go to the smaller islands. Not experienced, these shops also provide lessons.

It gets crowded by locals,but good to go weekday and do the tours of the island spends time on the local beach . Recommend having seafood in the evening at one of the seafood restaurants.

Depending on your exact location, any difference in time will be mostly because of walking distance to the mini bus stop. If you're near the TST MTR, I'd go to Choi Hung.

I would like to reach back to the airport by 3:30 PM << No you don't have enough time to do both. I would suggest to drop the idea of Sai Kung. It is far from the airport. Transportation takes a long time. The beaches in Sai Kung takes a few hours to take transportation plus hiking to get to. Not something that you casually drive to and walk up. ...More

Travel times to Stanley Market, Lantau, Sai Kung (12 Replies)
How long does it take to get to: - Stanley Market from the Exchange Square? - the Big Buddha on Lantau from Central Station? - the Sai Kung district from Central Station? And how much time do you figure one should spend at each? I'm trying to get a feel for how long it takes to get between places so I can plan my trip. Thanks!

Response fromSammyF1oyd|
Central to Stanley on bus: 45 minutes. Stanley is worth 1/2 day in the afternoon. The morning is too quiet. Hong Kong Station at Central to Tung Chung (for cable car to Big Buddha): 30 minutes. Allow two hours for Big Buddha. Central to Sai Kung: allow 90 minutes, and you will need to either connect to another bus or a green minibus. Sai Kung is not really a worthwhile destination. If you end up going, spend two hours there. Don't forget to add the transport time.

Po Toi O, Castle Peak Beach Seafood Market(also known as Sam Shing Hui) , assuming you don't mind the less touristy atmosphere, smaller number of stalls, and out-of-the-way locations
