  • Half moon bay

    Half moon bay is a perfect place to swim in HK. May be many people would recommend you to go Clear water Bay to enjoy the sun and water in HK, but I would recommend you to get on the locals boat to the island (half moon bay if u mentioned). When you get there, you might have the feeling of owning this island of your dream.

  • Dine on fresh seafood under the stars

    I loved this place when I was living in Hong Kong! It was a real treat to go out to Sai Kung for a nice seafood dinner at Tung Kee. You can choose to sit indoors or outdoors, but I personally prefer to sit at the outdoor tables where it feels more Hong Kongy. Watch out if you need to use the washroom though! Steamed Lai Liu (Peeing?) Shrimp and...

    Whilst visiting Hong Kong I went to Sai Kung a nice little town, most things here you would expect of Hong Kong, but there was one thing that caught my eye, a little shop which was tucked away, on the first floor so you will need to keep your eyes peeled, it host a range of semi precious jewellery such as necklaces, lariots and earings, aswell as a good selection of home made teddy bears and nightwear such as scarfs, clothing for bears that sort of stuff, a very good place to buy loved ones or even just friends something unique from your visit.

    I have included a couple of the jewellery pics for you to look at

Sai Kung Warnings and Dangers

  • acdenmark's Profile Photo

    by acdenmark Written May 29, 2009

    I have resently had a very close encounter with a King Cobra on the peninsula leading to Trio beach and quite a few people have now told me that they have been chased by cobras as well. The one I met did strike at me and then my husband so be aware and stamp the ground if you walk the trails in that area.
