Life moves slow here. Sunshine always. The smell of the sea make all of the people comfortable. All of the people here are just enjoying the life. No matter who they are. Children, Old, Lover and even the dogs.
Maybe your dog is also a good choice.
The foreign uncle who seems to be a street artist actually has released several albums. Amazing!
Shops here are always unique. They are not the famous brands. No channel. No Hermes. However, the colorful home-made objects seem to be more warm without much distance.

Colorful creative and energetic.

The beauty in the dilapidated houses.
Lots of the villagers in this village had moved out because the inconvenient transportation. Therefore, many houses are dilapidated here.

What really attractive is that the previous villagers used the colors audaciously. They use their own inspiration of the color to create new objects.
Peaceful, relaxing, enjoyable This is Sai Kung, a special place which is totally different from downtown that we are living in.
