Sai Kung Peninsula
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.

Actress and Conservationist Sharon Kwok visits these gems of the Sai Kung Peninsula, finding nature and heritage threatened by development
Sai Kung East Country Park was established in 1978, and protects some of the finest scenery in Hong Kong. You can enjoy vistas and tranquillity that seem far from the madding city. Spend a day here, and you can forget the pressures of work, whether you’re hiking, swimming, surfing, stream scrambling or simply chilling by the beach.
Though it takes some effort to reach, Tai Long Wan (Big Wave Bay) on the eastern Sai Kung Peninsula is set in perhaps the most beautiful scenery in Hong Kong. There are three beaches between headlands that sweep up to hills and ridges, old villages amidst abandoned farmland, a network of trails, and small restaurants catering mainly to hikers.
