Welcome to Sai Yok National Park


It's easy to explore Sai Yok independently, thanks to several sights (including waterfalls) reached along well-marked and maintained trails leading directly from the visitor centre. Many trails are open to bikes. The park's elevated location means temperatures are fresher than in surrounding towns, adding to the enjoyment of hiking or biking.
