Cafés in Sai Kung

Sai Kung Cafe

 

We already know that Sai Kung town has many things to offer in terms of food and drinks.

And one of the reasons why Sai Kung is such a popular destination for an escape from the city is also its numerous coffee shops or “cafés”.

 

Unlike a decade ago, the new trend in China for coffee consumption has been growing fast, which has turned the traditionally tea-drinking country into a huge market for coffee.

The same trend applies in HongKong: Coffee has never been so popular here, and all coffee lovers have literally transformed Hong Kong’s café scene in the past years.

The number of coffee shops in the city has rapidly expanded in the last five years with the introduction of international coffee chains.

 

As an example, in 2012 was launched The Coffee Academics, one of the first specialty coffee companies in Hong Kong, which has now become one of Hong Kong’s biggest coffee chains.

Not to mention Hong Kong baristas who have also made their way to the world stage in recent years,.

 

Sai Kung town, with many specialty coffee shops that now operate across the small, yet very inviting, town centre, is undoubtedly part of it!

Considering the lifestyle that has become somewhat more westernised, starting the day with a cup of aromatic coffee, or enjoying a simple espresso or cappuccino at one of the numerous coffee shops in Sai Kung has become a trend.

 

Any newcomer in Sai Kung who is also a coffee lover should try some of those and will definitely be hooked to at least one.

Each one has its own signature, but to name a few:

Why Sai Kung

First: a few words about Sai Kung and its surroundings.

 

The Sai Kung peninsula is known for its fishing villages, picturesque boats, beaches, hiking paths,

mountain sceneries, country parks, and other natural attractions.

One of the most popular destinations is Sai Kung town, which offers plenty to explore within the town,

from walks along the pier, to restaurants, and quaint cafes.

On the waterfront a busy floating seafood market supplies the waterfront eateries,

and with the fresh seafood being so plentiful, Sai Kung offers many dining options, not to mention the wine bars,

along the seaside promenade.

 

Island in Sai Kung

Sharp Island, with two beautiful beaches and a hiking trail is only a short ferry ride from Sai Kung Pier,

and probably one of the easiest islands to access.

Hiring a public junk boat or getting a private one with friends is also one of the best ways to explore

Sai Kung’s beaches,(from Tai Long Wan, Ham Tin, to Long Ke Wan, which all are located within the vast Sai Kung Country Park),

and admire the beauty of the UNESCO Global Geopark that would be difficult or impossible to access on foot.

 

Property Development

Sai Kung, consisting mainly of village houses is a low-density neighborhood

where you can enjoy relatively more living space and an abundance of fresh air

compared to high-rise neighborhoods. With plenty of open space and a good size of expat population,

Sai Kung, in some way, resembles the landscape of overseas suburbs with a laid-back and relaxing attitude.

 

Children in Sai Kung

If you have children, there are international schools in the district, including Clearwater Bay School,

ESF Abacus International Kindergarten, The Nord Anglia International Pre-School,

The Sai Kung Montessori Kindergarten school, and the Hong Kong Academy,

offering programmes of pre-kindergarten, primary years and middle years.

 

For younger ones, the town center has many playgrounds, all very safe for children,

and Sai Kung also offers the Lions Nature Education Centre which has five exhibition halls plus heaps

of flora and fauna to entertain the kids.

There’s an arboretum, a medicinal plants garden, an insectarium, a mineral and rocks corner and a shell house.

There’s also a dragonfly pond and a lotus pond.

 

With all of the above and much more making it the “back garden of Hong Kong”, if you feel like moving,

renting, buying in Sai Kung or the Sai Kung area, please do contact Eastmount Property Agency Limited

and we’ll do our best to find the accommodation that suits your budget and your needs.
