This is a must to visit when you're in Hong Kong. Take a ferry at #5 Pier in Central of Hong Kong and you'll be there in an hour or less, depending on whether you're taking an express. You'll see lots of eateries selling local specialties such as the tennis-ball-size spicy fish-balls and fried ice-cream. The Alliance Bible Seminary at... More

Great destination for a quiet day of wandering the car free streets and lanes. Good restaurants, shops and beaches. Highly recommend the trip. Enjoyed the ferry ride - took the high speed ferry one way and the slow ferry back.

Always great to go there, fast ferry from central pier, takes about 30 minutes or the slow ferry takes 1 hour. Wander around the harbour and town for a complete contrast to HK island, walk over to the beaches on the other side from the ferry, clean and safe beaches with lifeguards. Then before you go back to HK eat... More

We made a half day trip with a friend - the travel from Central Pier (no. 5) is inexpensive. The island has got plenty of touristy stalls but in the backstreets you can find nice local shops with goods for everyday use as well as handycrafts. The harbour offers nice sea food choices for very reasonable prices. Reminds me of... More

Cheung Chau was like a mini vacation location in Hong Kong's backyard. We took the slow ferry which takes 55-60min and I highly recommend it over the faster ferry (which is 40min). Pay for the deluxe cabin and sit outdoor in the back for the best views and experience. The island has something for everyone - beautiful hiking to secluded... More

We took the 1115 ferry from Hong Kong Island and reached Cheung Chau at 1215. it was a smooth and calm ferry ride with nice windy conditions. Cheung Chau terminal was packed with commuters and visitors to the island as it was a public holiday. One could cycle or walk around the island and savour the yummy street food, like... More

We spent 3 days there and would've been happy spending a few more days. There are many great hikes around the island and to smaller beaches, a cave (we had to wait in line with students from Macau to enter the cave). Lots of little shops and restaurants to explore. It was nice to get away from the MTR, taxis,... More

We took a day trip to Cheung Chau Island and found the place quite charming and a change of pace from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, which we enjoyed as well. We hiked on the Mini Great Wall trail along the coast and found many great photo opportunities. There's an option on the trail to branch off and... More

During Easter, my wife and I took a ferry at Pier 5, to Cheung Chau, a small island on the northeast Of Hong Kong. We went early to avoid the local holiday crowd and queue, after our experience queuing at Ngong Ping Cable Car. The one over hour ferry ride was relaxing. On the island we were surprised at the...

My last visit to Cheung Chau Island was nearly 20 years ago and as I remembered it, it was tranquil, charming and felt like a holiday away from Hong Kong. It has changed drastically since. It is a lot busier for one and the shops have a commercialised feel to it. Gone are the local shops and in it's place... More
