With the exception of a few excellent hostels (Sha Tin, Tsuen Wan, Taipo), good-value accommodation is in short supply in the New Territories. There are a handful of official HI-affiliated hostels, all in the remote parts of the region. Hikers can pitch a tent at any one of 40 New Territories campsites managed by the Country & Marine Parks Authority (www.afcd.gov.hk).
