Government keeps a lot of native people’s architectures as the heritage sites.
Travelers can visit the Sam Tung Uk Museum near Tsuen Wan MTR Station.
In the large former village house, visitors can see the life of the native people and the new exhibition of the intangible cultural heritage of Hong Kong.

Where can I see the sunset in the New Territories?

When travelers see the sunset at Lau Fau Shan fishing village, travelers can also see the big contrast between Hong Kong’s rural area and Shenzhen’s city center.
To TIY (tour it yourself), please take MTR feeder bus route K65 at Yuen Long MTR Station to reach Lau Fau Shan Terminus and walk for about 15 mins to the waterfront.

Should I stay in the hotels in the New Territories?
For most travelers, the answer is “NO”!
A lot of big hotel brands, Marriott, Hyatt, Holiday Inn etc., have their new hotels in different parts of the New Territories.
They may be cheaper than the brands’ flagship hotels in the city center.
But they are too far away from the main attractions on the Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon Peninsula.
Leisure travelers need to spend a lot of time (by train) and a lot of money (by taxi) to go back and forth the hotels in the New Territories and the main sightseeing points in the downtown of Hong Kong.
If you are the business travelers, you may stay in the hotels at the commercial areas and industrial areas in Sha Tin, Tseung Kwan O, Tsuen Wan and Tuen Mun to save traffic time.
