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.

Wonderful picturesque fishing village just 10 minutes from HKUST. Local scene with seafood restaurants (most seem to have the same owner), bars and dessert shops and other restaurants. All the waterfront seafood restaurants are good, but there is a bit of difference in the quality. Walk through the small back alleys and take a haircut or massage in one of... More

Everywhere you look is picture perfect - pristine blue clear waters and colourful boats lined up alongside the shores. You can witness the fishing village where fishermen sell their freshly caught seafood on their sampans, or walk down the street lined with many pop up stalls selling very interesting things, and look at the numerous dogs that roam about freely...

We actually took uber to get here which saves us a bit of time navigating the train and the buses. Had a great time walking around the area with nice scenery especially seeing the local traders selling food from their boat with a person sitting on the edge of the water to serve the customer. The seafood restaurant is great... More

Great experience travelling here, the traffic is quite tricky without subway but there are enough buses and minibuses to get to different places in Hong Kong. The weather is awesome and there is a long path along the sea to wander. You can also get on ferries and explore other islands.

If you need to get away for a day from the madness that is Hong Kong, come here. A former fishing village about an hour and a half away from HK Central by train and bus. People come here to eat fresh fish and enjoy the waterfront. I came here to see what is left of the fishing junks that... More

Sai Kung a former fishing village is a mix of old and new. The main street to the old marina still retains the old village look. The waterfront is lined with fishing junks filled with the days catch. Nearby are the outdoor seafood restaurants with tanks of live seafood. Walk away from the waterfront and you are surrounded by modern... More

Just stunning how lovely it can be such a short way from the hectic life of Hong Kong down town. We are a retired couple, but You have to be fit to enjoy the long walks that makes this trip special. (But You can use taxi and boats too, but with higher expense).

Plenty of choices for seafood so do your research. We settled on Chuen Kee, supposedly a Michelin mentioned place. The seafood was fresh but good value for money compared to Singapore. Should go there when there's some light so you can explore the place before digging into the food. Was a bit sad for the big fish in the tank.... More
