Sai Kung Town began its development as a market place about a hundred years ago when the area became a convenient gathering place for fishermen and villagers. Nowadays, Sai Kung Town is a mecca for seafood lovers, locals and tourist alike. On summer nights, a lot of people hire Kaitos or Sampan to catch cuttle-fish, a popular pastime for local residents.


   Visitors can easily hire sampans and junks for leisurely trips through the beautiful island-dotted inland sea of Port Shelter or stroll around the regional market center of Sai Kung Town. You may wish to explore the back lanes, feast on seafood, visit the Tin Hau Temple and enjoy different delicacies at western style pubs and restaurants.
  

Enhancement of the Sai Kung Waterfront

Sai Kung is endowed with beautiful natural sceneries and has long been named as "Leisure Garden of Hong Kong". Sai Kung Waterfront is the focal point and transport interchange to many of the green attractions. The project includes renovating the former Wai Man Road Rest Garden into today's Sai Kung Waterfront Park, streetscaping work along the promenade of Sai Kung Hoi Pong Square, repaving and refurbishing Fuk Man Road and erection of visitor signages. The waterfront has been given a total facelit upon completion of the improvement works in 2003. Alfresco dining facilities established along the waterfront have been very successful and well received by both local residents and visitors.
