Fook Lee Teahouse B&B, N.T. Remote B&B for Hiking Fans

[05/06/12] 

The Fook Lee Teahouse is found in the North Eastern part of the New Territories and is one of the few places you can spend the night between Sha Tin and Shenzhen. Of course, it's not like yester year when people travelled everywhere on foot and found themselves needing an inn for the night (we'd like to live like that for a week) but if you're planning an excursion to these parts it's a must stop. Often quite literally.

The manager speaks remarkably good English and the rates are reasonable, HK$125/night to be precise. A roof over your heard for the same price as a bowl of olives in Sevva. As you might imagine, the accommodation is simple, clean and satisfying in a 'there's more to life than money' kind of way. An opinion quickly pushed to the back of your mind when you're enjoying the spa in the Mandarin Oriental. 

To get to the B&B you have to hike for two and a half hours from Tai Mei Tuk to the hamlet of Sam A Tsuen in Plover Cove Country Park which is one of the best names we've ever come across. It sounds like a level on Super Mario. The guesthouse has three rooms but the biggest attraction is the fresh, cheap food; particularly the steamed fish. After a long day's walk it's all you want in the world, and remember to take your time eating - it's a long way back.

Fook me it's special.
