Hong Kong Asia's World City

Lei Yue Mun

Lei Yue Mun

The fishing village of Lei Yue Mun is a slice of old Hong Kong alive and well in the modern metropolis. About 150 years ago, this village was dominated by fishing, farming and mining. From the 1960s, it began to gain a reputation as a good spot for alfresco seafood dining. The ordering method is quite unusual: first you buy your fish from a tank in a market stall; then you take it to one of the nearby restaurants, which will prepare it for a fee. Overall, the price is reasonable and the seafood is very fresh. While experience the city’s living culture first-hand, drop by the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Lei Yue Mun Plus, an abandoned school that has been converted into educational, heritage and arts centre where you learn more about its culture and history.
