Owner description: 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.

The number of seafood and large fish aquarium is impressive. We went to Cheun Gee and had a dinner menu for 6 people. We had lots of seafood and it was not too expensive (around 1300 HKD). Interesting experience.

We took bus 92 from diamond hill mtr, after visiting the nunnery and gardens, to sai kung on a day trip. It was great to watch the selling of food from the boats on the harbour. We walked past the restaurants to fond a fantastc kids bookshop where i found some chinese picture story books written in English. The reading room, 21 hoi pong st sai kung, well worth a look.
We travelled onto wong shek pier via bus 94.
I wish we had the entire day in sai kung to explore, oh well, next time!

Yes there are fishing boats selling all kinds of seafood but the town has gone touristy big time. There are several tour boats and shills touting trips to the Geo Park Islands or sampan rides. There are several seafood restaurants on the harbor front with live seafood in tanks up front. None of which appealed to us as they seemed to be kind of shabby and uninviting. A tout handed me a sheet promoting a seafood set lunch. At HK $458 (US $55) per person we thought it is a bit steep in a harbor village.
As we walked around it became obvious that McDonald's and Pizza Hut were doing great judging by the number of people eating there.
Bottom line: You can get to Sai Kung by taking the MTR (train) from Tai Wai to the end of the line and then the 99 Bus. Or you can go to Sha Tin and then take the 299 bus to Sai Kung but this may take longer.

A little bit of a ride but certainly worth it. Lots of great restaurants, but locals tell me prices and portions will vary if they know you're a tourist. Make sure to take the time to walk up and down the waterfront and check out the fishing boats selling sea creatures. Great place for some pictures, especially by the large fish tanks.
