Pak Nai, subdivided into Sheung Pak Nai and Ha Pak Nai, is one of the best places to view sunset in Hong Kong.

Facing Deep Bay (a.k.a. Shenzhen Wan), Pak Nai is covered by wetland and there are hundreds of rafts floating on the bay raising oysters and scallops. Sea creatures are kept in these sheltered areas until they grow up and ready to be sold.

Such scene can also be found on other fishing villages in Hong Kong.

Make sure you check the sunset times before you go.

In 2003, I moved to Hong Kong with a dream of traveling around the world. Later I found out, HK is an amazing "mini world". Other than skyscrapers, a few steps outside the modern city, it has steep hills, winding coastlines, outlying islands, millions of years volcanic rocks, remote beaches, unspoilt fishing villages, secret waterfalls, wild animals and ancient forests. Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.
