SEAVIEW & UNIQUE SEAFOOD DISPLAY AT SAI KUNG HOI PONG SQUARE, HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 1 - Sai Kung Hoi Pong Square

Before I post about our dinner, I will share some photos that I have taken in Sai Kung Hoi Pong Square. It was still early and we had some time to look around and took some photos while waiting for the rest of our groups to join us.
On one side is the busy harbour will all types and sizes of boats.

Feasting our eyes on these beautiful scenery.
It was so wonderful to stand there, to feel the ocean breeze and smell the scent of sea water in the cool evening.

We were either standing or strolling along the pathway. Some were having their photos taken and I snapped this photo as he whizzed past me.

Sai Kung District, second largest district in Hong Kong.

On the other side, there are seafood restaurants displaying all types of fresh unique seafood. Introducing to you some of the unique seafood we will be eating for our dinner.

I have never seen such an abundance of fresh unique seafood before!

About Zebulun he said: "Rejoice, Zebulun,

in your going out, and you, Issachar, in your tents.

They will summon peoples to the mountain

and there offer the sacrifices of the righteous;

they will feast on the abundance of the seas,

on the treasures hidden in the sand."

(Deuteronomy 33:18-19, New International Version-NIV)

    1. Gosia, I love seafood. But I do know of people who could not take seafood due to allergy and I have also heard of seafood poisoning too.

  3. i stumbled on your blog while browsing for something and i'm glad I did, since then, your blog was one of my faves. ^0^
    i love how you share your food trips here and there and the photos always make me go hungry. ^-^
    i just had to comment when you mentioned H.K.,
    i just terribly missed this city esp the food and the local scenery. ^0^
    seems to me, H.K still looks the same as it was years ago,
    btw, have you also visited the Cheung Chau area?
    a nice island as well.
    anyways, everything looks fresh here and would love to try the snails perhaps, but my ultimate fave would be those scallops. ^0^

    1. Hi, Arabesque, so nice of you to drop by to visit my blog and thank you for your encouraging comments. I am glad I visited Hong Kong, it was a wonderful experience getting to see Hong Kong and tasting all those yummy food. I do not think we visited Cheung Chau area. We were there only 5D 4N, there's plenty yet to visit.

  5. I don't think I have seen so much seafood all in one place, apart from at a market perhaps. It all looks wonderful, I think I would have opted for the scallops or prawns.
