Hong Kong, China
Lei Yue Mun Village remains perhaps one of the most pleasant and, at least on the surface, most unlikely corners in this part of Kowloon. One of the four original villages in the eastern side of the Kowloon hills, Lei Yue Mun, only came into existence int eh 1850s as a result of the Hakka migration into the Hong Kong region, after British settlement on Hong Kong Island.
Lei Yue Mun in Chinese means carp (Lei Yue) gate (Mun), so it is no surprise that this place is related to seafood. Although rapidly modernising, this fishing village still remains a popular destination for seafood lovers. The seafood here is not really any better than anywhere else in Hong Kong, but it is a great experience nevertheless. Visitors can buy their own live seafood from the market stalls and then take it to a nearby restaurant to be cooked any way they like.
