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.
