What is so fun about Sai Kung

I enjoy strolling around the Sai Kung promenade, which is a doggy heaven for all dogs, big and small.  There is also something charming about this little fisherman corner, a little reflection of what Hong Kong looks like in the past.  Often, I have to take an hour ferry trip to the outlying islands to feel the old HK charm, but Sai Kung is only a 30 minutes taxi ride away.  It is fun heading to Sai Kung over the weekend when there are other dogs for Pretzel to mingle with.  As this is a fishing hub, rows of seafood restaurants are lined up next to the shores.  Since I have been to Sai Kung on numerous occasions, I would skip the seafood restaurants, but I love sitting outside the bakery across from the bus stop enjoying its famous pineapple bun with a cup of coffee.  If you stroll into the alleyways, you can also sample some very local snacks such as fish balls, beef tripes, rice rolls, and a variety of foods that are all a few dollars.
