Came here many years ago when it really was a quiet island. Despite it becoming extremely crowded, it's still worth a visit. Reminds me of a smaller version of Xiamen's Gulangyu with all it's small shops selling souvenirs and nik-naks. Various seafood restaurants lining the waterfront which I didn't sample but did try out various fish ball stalls as well... More

We enjoyed our trip to the island. We took the fast ferry from pier #6 at Central at about 9 AM. We went to the Pak Thai Temple and walked to the cemetery and back to the pier. It was interesting to see how these people live. No cars on the island - just bikes. We had lunch at one... More

Lots to see, plenty of places to eat, easy to get there on the ferry. There are lots of tourists but it does definitely have a different vibe from being in Hong Kong the city so it is well worth the visit. We ventured over to the back of the island where there is a beach (poor quality by Australian... More

I took the ferry from Central (pier 5) to Cheung Chau; the regular ferry took about an hour. I took the fast ferry back and I recommend doing this if you are planning on visiting. The fishing village is a wonderful place to visit if you have seen the HK highlights and are looking for something outside the city to... More

Was there on a Sunday. Took the express ferry which ride takes about half and hour. Was inpressed by the hill walks and beaches. Proper steps-staircase up and down. Did not attempt walking around the entire island. I should think it will take more than a day! We arrived at around 10 am and left the island close to 5.30... More

My wife and I have visited Hong Kong before, but never ventured out to any of the islands nearby. Well, after a bit of research on Tripadvisor, we decided to take a day, leave the hustle bustle of Hong Kong, and see another side of the region. We took the 'fast' ferry (First Ferry) from the Central Pier to Cheung... More

Definitely a place to visit if you are planning for a Hong Kong trip...great and unforgettable seafood dining experience. Drop by Cheung Chau Market for a seafood selection and pick your freshest ingredients off the tank and hang out around at one of the family's restaurant operating along the shore and ask them to whip up a meal or two...

Great day trip - small fishing village. We road bikes around the entire island. Worth checking out the cave, the beaches are great, lots of small temples. The food to the left of the ferry terminal was excellent.

I took the ferry over to the island thinking it would be delightful but it was very crowded, not very nice smells, and quite frankly not worth the effort. I did sit and watch the beach for a while, it would be nice to swim and there were places to change.

Quite easy to take a ferry from behind IFC to this little lovely fishing village famous for her fish balls and "Ping An" buns. It's very relaxing to walk along the small streets where you can find some interesting handicraft shops and dried seafood. Sunset is lovely and you will find that there are many stalls that serve cheap and... More
