A wonderful destination away from Hong Kong but well worth a visit with a great waterfront and excellent fish restaurants. Sunday's are a must with the market etc.

After a walk along the harbour, we hand picked our own scallops, razor clams, clams, crab and crayfish. Finished the meal with Portuguese Egg Tarts.

It's probably the most western place in Hong Kong, where there are a lot of locals who are foreigners and they know how to speak Cantonese. My mum and dad used to live here and they think it's heaven. It's great for seafood cuisine because it is freshly caught and fried straight away. be careful for scams though, they may... More

Great place to escape from the city crowds. Good variety of outdoor activities. Long Ke Wan and Tai Long Wan are both fantastic beaches (although in both cases you need to hike in). If you don't want to walk, Trio Beach and Sharp Island are both accessible by Sampan and offer good beaches and swimming.

The double decker bus to Sai Kung is like a roller coaster ride over the island especially if you're lucky to get the front seats on the top level. Its a picturesque trip and you're rewarded at the end with a pretty sandy beach, restaurants and souvenir shops

The other side to the city life.... I hear a lot of people say that it's just a big city and people swing through for 2/3 days or so and leave. Go to the beach, enjoy the islands and everything else this wonderful country have to offer.
