WHAT'S NEW SAI KUNG 西貢週末遊

W

hat is the first thing that comes into your mind about Sai Kung? Is it Seafood, Sea Breeze or Sunshine? If you are a seafood lover, there are two Michelin seafood restaurants in Sai Kung that you cannot afford to miss. Besides, there are several recreation activities that you can absolutely relax your body and soul. Following is a suggested itinerary of a get-a-way day trip in Sai Kung.

Direction • Minibus route 1A from MTR Choi Hung station • Minibus route 101M from MTR Hang Hau station

1 Colour Brown is an ideal place for you to start your day in Sai Kung if you want a chill place to enjoy your breakfast with a cup of coffee. They have more than 30 different species of coffee and each of them are roasted freshly, including the most popular ones such as Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee and some rear ones such as Dutch coffee, Cubita coffee and Kopi Luwak. How to get there It is located on See Cheung Street, just next to the Sai Kung Promenade.

2 Sai Kung is popular for its pristine beaches and has some of the most stunning ones. Tai Long Wan, which is commonly known as Tai Long Sai Wan, located at the coast of Sai Kung Country Park and often recognized and awarded as one of the best beaches and scenic sites in Hong Kong, even in South China. It requires some effort to get there by hiking around 45 to 60 minutes on the Stage 2 of the MacLehose Trail. However, you will be around with green hills and scenery of the beautiful sea during hiking and it could make the hike much more enjoyable. You will also be rewarded after the hike with white fine sands and clear blue water when you get there. You can hike there in the morning then spend sometime there enjoying the sunlight and the sound of waves, which make it the perfect escape from the city. How to get there Take bus 94 or 96R from Sai Kung town centre and get off at Pak Tam Au. Alternatively, take a taxi from Sai Kung to the Sai Wan drop off. A speed boat runs from Ham Tin to Sai Kung on weekends, but only if the waters aren't too rough and there are enough passengers.

3 Loaf On is a family style restaurant which serves fresh seafood. It has consistently been awarded one Michelin star in the past three years. Different from usual seafood restaurants which have a tank showing all the seafood, there is no tank in this restaurant. Two fishermen are hired to provide fresh seafood caught from the sea every day, so that customers can enjoy the freshest seafood. How to get there Loaf On is located on See Cheung Street, which is behind the Waterfront and takes around 10 minutes walk from the bus terminal too.

Sai Kung is one of the seven approved paragliding sites in Hong Kong. It is possible to do training courses in Sai Kung in different levels. However, if you merely have limited time, tandem flights accompanied by professionals can be arranged in Sai Kung as well, then you can literally just turn up, take off and fly like a bird. During the flight, you can easily enjoy the sun, light winds and breathetaking scenery in the sky.

5 After all these activities during daytime, you could possibly enjoy the experience of a boat ride as well as cuttlefish fishing. It is a popular local recreational activity for locals. Basically, you could simply hire a traditional Chinese Sampan or Kaido boat at the pier, or you could join specific tours to do it with a big group and it usually comes with a chef, therefore, you could have the freshest cuttlefish cooked right after you fish it.

How to get there Sai Kung New Public Pier if you want to hire a boat, which is right next to the bus terminal and Waterfront Promenade.

Bathtub The unit glows seductively when the embedded LED lights diffusing through the tub are switched on and appears serene in daylight.. A new level of complete calm, contentment and amusement could then be experienced when bathing.

Dual Compressors

Sub-Zero is the first to develop dual refrigeration technology, which individual integrities of fresh and frozen foods are maintained as each of them has different preservation needs. With Sub-Zero each refrigerator and freezer area has its own compressor, which provides the optimum food storage conditions for food preservation, and undesirable aromas and flavors are not circulated and transferred between the two by the separate air system.

Advanced Air Purification

Incorporating technology developed for NASA, Sub-Zero’s air purification system refreshes and ‘scrubs’ the air in the unit every 20 minutes. It even removes food odors and the ethylene gas naturally emitted by some foods that cause over-ripening and hastens spoilage and waste.

Build and quality of materials

Sub-Zero refrigerators are hand-made, hand-finished, 100% quality tested and 100% made in the USA. Exteriors are made from 18-gauge stainless steel exteriors are not susceptible to denting and are easy to keep clean due to the thicker graining in the steel. Besides, interiors are made from powder-coated non-corrosive aluminium. Last but not least, Sub-Zero’s hinge design is unique that the open angle of the door will not be affected even though the fridge is right next to the wall.

Golden Visa Easy Access to Europe

A

s a holder of a Golden Visa in Portugal, you can easily access the European Schengen area, which covers 26 countries.

The Schengen area is currently Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

Obtaining the Golden Visa allows the holder to travel around the Schengen area, which makes traveling between its 26 member countries less bureaucratic and much easier. You do not have to go through the hassle, expense or time to obtain individual visas for each country; you just use the Schengen Visa for all its member countries.

Portugal has introduced the Golden Residence Program to bring greater foreign investment into the country by offering in exchange a simpler and quicker way to obtain a five year temporary residence permit (Golden Visa) for non EU citizens.

Investments must be maintained for a minimum period of five years and currently cover three areas, Property Investments (above EUR$500,000 in

total), Capital Investments (transfer of funds above EUR$1 Million) and Job Creation (creation of a minimum of 10 jobs). At the end of the five-year period applicants are eligible to apply for Portuguese citizenship.

The Spanish Government is expected to make an announcement in late February on foreigners residency permits for investment into Spain, which was initially proposed for buying property worth more than EUR$160,000.

Spain is a wonderful country offering a great lifestyle. The opportunity at present is that many prime properties are available with excellent growth potential.

I travelled to Portugal and Spain in late January to visit various developments, and there are great opportunities both on and off market for property investment in both countries, and a worthwhile location for considering spending your investment dollars. Source: http://www.schengenvisa.cc

one of the very last places in this region which still has permission to build directly on the dunes. As a result, many of the resort’s properties have spectacular views over the Atlantic and are just metres from the beach, giving them great rarity value and ensuring a steady demand for resales.

Potential owners also find Praia D’El Rey’s close proximity to Lisbon,

with its shops, museums, nightlife and international airport, plus the

competitive pricing of the properties very appealing. Some properties have seen their value increase by 40% since 2003. But a property at Praia D’El Rey is not only a sound investment opportunity; it’s also the chance to build your dream home for the future.
