Up & coming - watch this space...
Jan 2018 • Family
This area has been reclaimed & developed over the past 20 years. It is still a work in progress but you can see the potential to come. There are plenty of new residential buildings but they are more luxurious in style going lower rise towards the sea front. The streets are well planned & wide with bike lanes alongside. The sea front itself has a fitness track for walking, running & bikes also. The MTR has a good connection to Hong Kong island & takes only 30 - 40 minutes to the city. There are rows of retail units just preparing to open on the ground floor of the buildings with potential for lots of new restaurants, Hopefully people will realize that potential & make decent places with outdoor seating along the sea-front. There is space to do that & where else in Hong Kong is that possible. We need some nice quality places & hopefully those places from Soho & Wanchai will see the potential to invest in this area.

Its a refreshing change from junk bay from high end residential neighbourhood.
Apr 2017
It used to be a place filled with garbage, aka Junk Bay. After its clean up, there are massive infrastructure and residential high rises. Amenities and its access to the MTR system is well established. There is no short of transportation if someone were to move into this area. Well done.

More of a residential area

Not worth the time of going to Tseung Kwan O unless you have a friend living there. Formerly called Junk Bay and there is nothing much to see.

It's not worth to visit here
Feb 2017 • Friends
I live nearby Tseung Kwan O but not exactly in there.
I hate to go there, because so many people and construction sites in that side.

You need walk 10 mins to go to seaside, otherwise TKO just has building and shopping mall, not worth to visit.

Massive residential area
Dec 2016 • Solo
Massive residential area now with a population of some 600,000. Tower block after tower block built atop mall after mall.

Area is also home to landfills surrounded by residential developments..

Nice enclave in the New Territories!
Feb 2016 • Couples
We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Kowloon East located in Tseung Kwan O. Very clean, and was within steps to the MTR station.

Its old name is Junk Bay
Jun 2016 • Solo
Nothing much to see in Junk Bay as this area is a big piece of reclamation land and there are a lot of residential buildings.

Residential towers along the skyline....
Oct 2015 • Couples
Formally known as 'Generals Bay' as well as 'Junk Bay' but what really stands out is the high rise residential buildings that form a mountain ridge along the skyline. The harbour area is being reclaimed to build even more towers so it's really high density living in the New Territories.

As tourists we stayed here at a hotel chain that is far removed from the usual hotels of Kowloon and the Island. The Tsueng Kwan O MTR makes it a little easier to get to the main tourist sites and a mall or two makes it interesting to shop local style. Many restaurants and cafes are dotted around where we stayed and more inside the PopCorn Mall.

Enjoy your visit!

a miniature of Hong Kong
Oct 2015 • Solo
Developed in the last two decades, Tseung Kwan O can be considered a miniature of Hong Kong. You can find Home Ownership Scheme flats, public housing, private housing estates, shopping malls connected by covered footbridges. So you do not need to go down to the ground level from one estate to another. Shopping malls mean you do not have much choice because they would lease most of the units to chain shops. Not much difference when I do shopping in mall A and mall B. Small and family-run shops can only survive in some HOS estates. This is Hong Kong in the last twenty years.

However, recreational facilities are better in this district. I can go to the TKO sports ground, which is up to international standard, to do jogging when the venue is not booked. Cycling paths are available so you can enjoy cycling at weekends.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city
Sep 2015 • Family
If you'd like a quiet place to stay at during your visit to Hong Kong, then this is the place. Our hotel is conveniently adjacent to the MTR station and to a mall. The MTR is such an efficient means of transportation that its distance is hardly noticeable. Disatnce from the airport to our Tseung Kwan O (TKO) hotel is about 67 minutes but those minutes can hardly be felt as we transfer MTR lines until finally taking the Airport Express.
