    Lei Yue Mun which one place is known for fresh sea-bird's place, into a surface between the sea bird's shop for select liquid, different price money, although the Pricing comparison 貴, but a handy to me is to try and have empathy.

    Located less than 30 minutes from central Kowloon by taxi or MTR, this venue was an excellent way for us to enjoy the seaside atmosphere of Hong Kong, take in the harbor views with small fishing vessels and experience a seafood village. We visited before lunch time and were rewarded with uncommon sights and sounds without the large crowds. There were lane ways lined with live seafood shops. The attraction was the large variety of fishes, shellfish and crustaceans swimming in shallow tanks. There were restaurants and shops selling other traditional dried goods and handmade foodstuff. We also found a beach and park. There was also a small air-conditioned local market with seafood, meat, vegetable and fruit stalls at the entrance to the area. We stayed for lunch and learnt from various seafood suppliers and restaurants that everyone uses a simple system for orders and payment. We decided on the seafood stall and confirmed the price of each item. It was recorded in a receipt. The seafood was then cooked in a nearby restaurant which charged a base cooking fee per dish per person. Additional dishes were charged a separate cooking fee per person. We had 4 persons and 4 dishes. Thus we didn't need to pay for additional dishes. The total price for lunch was still affordable and much less than what we paid in restaurants in the city. In addition, we enjoyed 4 dishes of live seafood.

    Lots of seafood to choose from but you'll most likely be overpaying due to the tourist name of Lei Your Mun.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
