    You will see a lot of local tours at Sai Kung Pier. Just go there anytime during the day and join will be fine. Around HK$200 per person.

    Sai Kung is one of the most beautiful areas of Hong Kong with mountain and sea scenery and lots of little islands. The town of Sai Kung itself has lots of seafood restaurants where you pick your own food from a tank, then wait for it to be cooked. There are many other types of restaurants and bars. The area around Sai Kung has many country parks, barbeque areas, campsites and hiking trails. You can also take boat trips on sampans from Sai Kung or take a boat to Hong Kong's only public golf course on Kau Sai Chau island.

    To get to Sai Kung by public transport take the MTR to Choi Hung then take minibus 1A to Sai Kung. Or take the MTR/KCR to Sha Tin then take bus 299.

    If you come here in the right summer time, you can enjoy a clean and nice beach and some water sport; if you come here in a rainy day, you can still enjoy fresh seafood with relatively cheap price. You can hire a boat to remote island to escape civilisation; sadly, the day I went there was not a really good time since we encountered thumder sotrm.
    There are also some old building, you can try to find Hong Kong in 80's.
    BTW, this is my third week since I launched "Discover Hong Kong" campaign..

    Repping in Sai Kung

    We came out here with reason. Its a minibus ride packed with speed limits broken and balding of tires hitting turns with a tilt. We were on the search for a Bar-B-Q. A walk through seafood after seafood restaurant hugged the watersedge, met with housing above highly over-detailed in years of clutter build-up. Boats bobbed tightly packed in this bay, and we fished our way through to a restaurant where they stamp you with a Campfire Isignia and you pay your 120HK dollars and cook mucho meats on your own personal backyard BBQ. Freezer loads of raw everything, you grab, you bring to your table and you put over hot hot fire.

  • Clear Water Bay

    Clear Water Bay 2nd beach

    It has a 1st beach and a 2nd beach. Just as the name shows the water is very clear here.

    If you go like me from Sai Kung Town then you can take minibus at the town bus teminus to Tseung Kwan O first. Tseung Kwan O is a new town and most developed in Sai Kung district. There has a MTR station too. To go on to Clear Water Bay take minibus 103. It maybe hard to find the bus stop. It's located on the opposite side of a road behind a hospital.

    Sai Kung Public Pier

    I was told Sai Kung is the "back garden of Hongkong". Yes this is a district full of beautiful natural scenery.

    At the square near the bus terminus in Sai Kung Town there exhibits routes for tourists. Seems the rural areas are popular for hikers. In Sai Kung Town there's a Seafood Street along the waterfront where you can choose by yourself and enjoy the delicious seafood. Walk on you'll see an old town. Enjoy the strolling here has few tourists. You may also want to have a look to the islets nearby. You can hire a sampan at the waterfront. For price you must bargain.

    This is a countryside area of HK near the sea. Locals come to windsurf, swim, go on boat trips to islands.

    There are some shops, restaurants in the main area...

    You can easily and cheaply take a boat to the small, remote islands and see fishing villages, temples and go hiking.

    If you've got cash to splash, or have a big group you can hire a private boat to take you around (did for grandad's 90th birthday, many relatives) to see hidden bays/beaches, islands, caves and more.

  • Visit Sai Kung/Tai Long Wan

    by m152 Written Jul 19, 2004

    Hi,

    If you have a short time & you have seen Kowloon & HK Island.

    Go to Sia Kung - Train to Diamond Hill & Bus outside the Train station (10 mins).

    Bus journey takes 30 mins - It is a fishing village with boat rides, there are also places to shop.

    If you plan your day, you can go to Tai Long Wan - which is from the main bus terminal (where you get off at Sia Kung).

    Journey is about 30 mins, walk is about 1 1/2 hours, hills, beach is worth the walk.

    That will cover the North West side.

    Good Luck

    Tai Long Wan Beach

    Can't believe this is in Hong Kong!!

    This is one of the best beaches we have ever been to anywhere in the world. We love the fact that it is hard to get to and that very few people are there. It would take us three hours from our home to get there! And in Hong Kong where ten minutes is considered very far this was like another planet. There are a few villagers living there and thankfully no development is allowed there (as yet). Wonder how long this will remain isolated...
