Lei Yue Mun is located at the south-east of the Yau Tong Industrial Area in Kwun Tong. Consisted of 4 villages, the Lei Yue Mun Village has a history of over 150 years, with a total population of about 4 500. Before the 1960s, villagers were mainly farmers, fishermen and miners. The first seafood restaurant was opened in the 1960s and became a quite successful business. Other fishermen followed the footsteps and Lei Yue Mun has gradually become one of the most famous seafood place in the world, attracting thousands of local and overseas visitors every year.
In 1992, the First Lei Yue Mun Seafood Festival was jointly organized by several seafood restaurants, and its success has made it an annual event. During this Festival, the exhilaration of Cantonese opera performances and lion dances are found in the streets. Restaurants also launch promotion activities to attract gourmets.
