Tip#1: Add $10-40 when calling a taxi
If you have tried calling each taxi centers one by one, and no replies after a few attempts. Try to pay some money extra, especially if you are at somewhere remote.
Tip#2: Avoid the traffic jam
The traffic jam usually takes place when you are leaving Sai Kung Town on a sunny perfect day. While most people choose to go back to Sai Kung Town and then Choi Hung MTR station, I suggest people should avoid the peak time (6-8pm). If you are at Sai Kung Town, stay there for dinner and leave after 9pm. If you are in the Sai Kung country side, take taxi to the University MTR station (~$150), and i believe this is the fastest way to get to the city.
Tip#3: Green and Red Taxis
The Red taxis can pass through any areas in Hong Kong while the Green ones can only drive within the New Territories. So try to the Green ones first as they probably know the remote parts of Sai Kung, but remember the Red ones still work in Sai Kung.
Good luck and have a fun trip in Sai Kung.
