Planning Tips

Top Tips

Kaitos, ferries plying Hong Kong's lesser known waterways, are useful when visiting the New Territories and Outlying Islands. The Transport Department has reliable information on sailings (www.td.gov.hk).

Local Experiences

  • Hang-outs Locals fly kites and drones along the dam at Plover Cove Reservoir, the waterfront promenade of Sai Kung Town, and in Tai Po Waterfront Park.
  • Country eating Fook Lee Tea House and Choi Lung Restaurant are popular with Hong Kong's food-loving hikers, many of whom hike to eat and eat to hike.
  • Seafood shopping In Saikung town, locals buy seafood from the indoor market across the road from Poets, rather than the moored boats in the harbour; prices are comparable.
