Where to stay in Yuen Long

Exploring Yuen Long

In Hong Kong, the term Yuen Long can refer to the traditional market town named Yuen Long San Hui, Yuen Long New Town, the district containing both of these areas, or the plain on which this scenic part of the New Territories West is located. Yuen Long may seem remote from the more urban areas of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, but Castle Peak Road has connected this area formerly known as Un Long with the rest of Hong Kong since 1898.

Yuen Long may not contain as many hotels as other parts of Hong Kong, but Hong Kong Gold Coast offers a four-star luxury beach resort experience along the nearby Golden Beach, while the four-star Four Points by Sheraton is within four kilometres of the area. Yuen Long itself includes many of Hong Kong's most beautiful and serene natural landmarks such as its namesake Yuen Long Park and the Ping Shan Heritage Trail, which takes trekkers past several buildings and structures which once belonged to the prominent Tang clan.

Sights nearby

Yuen Long is a comparatively quiet oasis positioned north of bustling Hong Kong Island and south of the equally sprawling mainland Chinese city of Shenzhen. This makes Yuen Long particularly popular with people searching for a quiet place to relax in the heart of one of the world's most densely populated regions.

Kat Hing Wai
One of the region's most famous walled villages is this Kam Tin rectangular structure which once boasted four cannon towers and a towering blue brick wall to ward off bandits. The legendary Tang clan first built Kat Hing Wai more than five centuries ago and it has served as the Tang ancestral home ever since. The Tangs are considered one of the territory's five great clans.

Tai Lam Country Park
Hong Kong's second biggest country park is situated in one of the territory's most tranquil corners in the Western New Territories. The Tai Lam Chung Reservoir and seemingly endless green plantations can be seen from the final parts of the MacLehose Trail, just one of a dozen scenic hiking trails within the park's boundaries, which extend between Tuen Mun and Tsuen Wan. Mountain biking and picnicking are other popular activities.

Yuen Long Park
The most famous landmark in Yuen Long's namesake park is the seven-floor pagoda surrounding an impressive aviary. The lookout point on the aviary's uppermost floor is an ideal vantage point for panoramic Tin Shui Wai and Yuen Long views. A small bridge crosses the stream leading to a lovely ravine garden. The park's other popular pastimes include a fitness trail, turfed gateball court, children's playground, cascading waterfalls, and an artificial lake.

Eating and drinking and shopping nearby

The vibrant market which shares Yuen Long's name is the oldest in all of Hong Kong, but this traditional shopping and meeting place now stands alongside at least nine modern shopping malls. The Sun Yuen Long Centre is a shopping complex containing five 31-floor skyscrapers. Although staff may not always speak fluent English, Yuen Long restaurants tend to serve up cheaper meals than those on Hong Kong Island or Kowloon. Harbour Plaza Resort and Royal View Hotel both include three restaurants. Reservations and big appetites are both essential to enjoy a traditional poon choi feast.

Public transport

Nearly 20 Kowloon Motor Bus routes, half a dozen MTR routes, NLB route B2, and LWB routes N30 and N30 all serve Yuen Long, while Route B1 travels to the Lok Ma Chau Station Control Point between Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Four light rail lines along the MTR West Rail Line also travel throughout the district, whose other public transit options include public light buses and taxis. New Territories taxis are green.
