Weekly photo Challenge: Local ( Sai Kung )

This week’s photo challenge is Local.

One of the places I visit several times a year is known as Sai Kung on the Eastern side of the New Territories of Hong Kong.cimg2974

My photos will not do the place justice, as I concentrate my photos on scenery instead of people and street live which are all the more interesting.cimg2975

This is a small fishing town.  Recently, it has become more popular with locals and tourists as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

It is well known for its seafood and many seafood restaurants line the seafront forming a Seafood Street. Some sampans for selling live fishes and shrimps / lobsters are berthed against the seawalls. It is fun watching them selling the sea creatures.dscf2070

Besides seafood, visitors can charter boats for snorkeling, scuba diving or just swimming at the beaches at the nearby islands. My photo show some of the distant view of islands.dscf2063

There are several piers there where you can embark / disembark on boats which bring you to some of the nearby islands. One of my pictures shows the pier.dscf2068

You can easily spend more than half a day out there!
