Due to the vast array of new developments available in Tseung Kwan O, more and more people are paying attention to this neighbourhood. Once a simple market town and fishing village, Tseung Kwan O has since then expanded and developed into a modern and thriving neighbourhood. Tseung Kwan O may be famous for its pungent trash odour, but there is more than meets the eye, or well, smell. If you’re planning to relocate or visit the area, here are a few hotspots around the neighbourhood!
If you’re a fan of “Miss Hong Kong” or “Jade Solid Gold”, you can visit the birthplace of these TV shows in Tseung Kwan O. Located at Chun Choi Street, TVB City has a building area of over 110,000 square metres, including two outdoor shooting locations and 22 production studios. However, please keep in mind that TVB City is not usually open to public, unless you have a special pass or know someone on the inside. Another way of entering the premise is to fill in the TV recording audience form and depend on your luck to become one of the chosen applicants.
Tseung Kwan O Waterfront Park
Opened in 2013, Tseung Kwan O Waterfront Park provides visitors a break away from the hectic city. The park stretches from Tseung Kwan O town centre to Tiu Keng Leng and is around 1.6 hectares in area. Other than offering a scenic and panoramic view of Lei Yue Mun and Chai Wan, there is also a 648 sq. ft. pet garden for you to spend some quality time outdoors with your furry friends.
Located directly above the Tseung Kwan O MTR station, Popcorn mall is a relatively high-end shopping mall that fulfills all your luxury needs. The brand new shopping mall aims to provide a well-rounded experience for all kinds of shoppers – whether you are looking for products in the fashion, gift, sports, beauty or digital department, you’ll find them at Popcorn mall.
Hong Kong Velodrome Park
If you’re planning a family outing, Hong Kong Velodrome Park is the place to go. This isn’t your typical park – other than providing the usual outdoor playground, Hong Kong Velodrome Park also includes a mini climbing wall, a bike trail, a picnic area and even a skatepark for hardcore teenagers.
Lardos Steak House
Whoever thought that one could find a steakhouse in the middle of a remote village? Located in Hang Hau Village, Lardos Steak House has long been associated with quality steaks at reasonable prices. Other than getting a good steak deal, you can dine in a quiet and unpretentious atmosphere in the middle of a traditional Chinese village. After dinner, you could even take a walk in the nearby Clearwater Bay Beach and bask in the moonlight with your loved one.
