Sai Kung

Sai Kung information

Lonely Planet review

Apart from the Outlying Islands, the Sai Kung Peninsula is one of the last havens left in Hong Kong for hikers, swimmers and boaters, and most of it is one huge 7500-hectare country park. A short journey to any of the islands off Sai Kung town is rewarding. Hidden away are some excellent beaches that can be visited by kaido (small boats), which depart from the waterfront. The MacLehose Trail, a 100km route across the New Territories, begins at Pak Tam Chung on the Sai Kung Peninsula.

On top of this Sai Kung town boasts some excellent bars and restaurants, especially along the attractive waterfront.
