With the encroachment of large scale developments most of the fishing villages with fish markets have disappeared apart from this and the one in Lama Island. This is not as good as Lama for the restaurants being away from the waterfront so most of the tourist go to the Lama.
Lau Fau Shan is a market visited almost completely by the local Hong Kong citizens and has a distinct down to earth feel, The Market here is longer than Lama Island and I believe that more fish are sold here for the HK restaurants. It is not the easiest place to get to being a considerable drive from Hong Kong Island. The fact thatthere is no MTR close by and only a bus that visits it regularly makes it a difficult place to visit. We however were fortunate as close friends drove us there and they easily found parking nearby.
As we made our way down the path to the seaside we had a whole host of shops and restaurants to see which sadly sold the same fish produce. The whole path is covered so even on rainy days shouldn't stop you. The restaurants looked like the typical down to earth affair that the locals like to enjoy and I am sure that they are a good place to eat all the fresh seafood that you see all around you. Getting to the seafront we could see Shenzhen and a beautiful blue sky. As the tide had gone out the bay was muddy and maybe not the prettiest. However I was happy to visit this dry market as my friend called it. Unfortunately as I am not a sea food lover I have no reason to visit it again.
