    Desperately Shopping Sai Kung

    Hi, our move to Sai Kung, HK is just around the corner and I can't seem to be able to locate a Sai Kung shopping directory or everyday life sort of guidebook. If there's anyone out there who lives in this part of the N.T., please help!

    I'm wondering where is the best place to really load up on household goodies - groceries, fresh meats/seafood, washer, dryer, beds, curtains, blinds..the like.

    Is there a one stop shop superstore like Carrefour or Walmart etc.etc?

    Where is the wet market in Sai Kung?

    If there's nothing in Sai Kung, what's my next best option?

    Thanks for any advice/contacts I can get!

    Anita

    Hi Anita,

    I am sorry but I'm not that familar with Sai Kung. But just wanted to let you know that you can order all your groceries online before you arrive.

    The major supermarkets are

    Sai Kung Info

    Hi Rani,

    FYI, I found a website that may be helpful for future inquiries into Sai Kung. The SK District Council has a website with a simple intro if the area at:

    http://www.travelinsaikung.org.hk/en...tro/index.html or just go to www.travelinsaikung.org.hk and select English.

    Scroll down the page, look left and they have a link to a quarterly English language guide (Saikung District Link) they publish for residential EXPATS. It's got quite a good deal of the info I was looking for on healthcare, shopping, stores, kids activities, restaurants, maps etc. in the area.

    Hi Anita,
    Try IKEA. The nearest one in KLN-Bay
    Sai Kung downtown has some Chiese antique furniture shops, they even tailor made (copy from the old one) one for you to suit your space
    Groceries shopping either through internet, or go to "Wellcome Supermarket" in Sai Kung downtown, has wet market inside the store. Besides, there is also a wet market in Sai Kung downtown just a few blocks away from the supermarket.
    More... during the weekends, there are many fishboat parked along the seashore selling fresh sea food. Very good bargain.

    Good luck

    Many people from Saikung also go to the supermarket at TASTE in Festival Walk at Kowloon Tong.
    It's more upscale than Wellcome. Although I go to both.

    Saikung also has some great organic shops and there's an amazing organic butcher/fishmonger in Ma Hang right next door to Sai Kung.

    A great former source of info. was "The District Link", but it has been re-born as
    Explore Sai Kung

    They also have an office and can provide lots of info.
