Sai Kung Public Pier.


The school my husband is working for took all the new teachers on a tour of Hong Kong today to give us a better understanding of areas we might like to rent. The bus shuttled us around in a big loop of the country, hitting the areas of Ma On Shan, Sai Kung, Tseung Kwan O, Sai Wan Ho, Happy Valley, and Hung Hom.

 

Our family has to be out of the hotel by tomorrow and we have not had any luck finding a service apartment. We have called, emailed, and physically walked to serviced apartments only to discover that they are all booked at the moment. This is peak season in Hong Kong for rentals and serviced apartments. Not good news for our family of four. I am back to stress eating everything in sight as I have visions of our family out on the sidewalks with our twelve pieces of luggage sitting forlornly beside us.

 

The town of Sai Kung is apparently popular among locals to visit on the weekends. It's known as a beach town with great seafood restaurants. You point to the fish swimming around in the tank and it's cooked right there for you. Farm to table at it's freshest. Coming from the beach town in South Carolina of Myrtle Beach, Sai Kung has a completely different vibe going. Although both Myrtle Beach and Sai Kung boast of golf courses, as we walked the public pier, I did not see any sandy beaches. There were plenty of fishing boats for rent to take you to various outlaying islands.
