Pak Sha O the Village Where West Saves East

Pak Sha O, a village in the wilds of the Sai Kung Peninsula, seems almost suspended in time. As you approach on foot – there's no road access - trees hide it from view. Pass through these, and you see white-painted, two storey houses, mostly arrayed in terraces on gently sloping land.

Explore - quietly!, and you'll find grassy gardens, stony ruins adjoining sturdy buildings, renovation work underway. Though it's like a folk museum, there are homes equipped with all mod cons.
