If you've had enough of the expensive fancy stores and frantically bustling crowds of Kowloon and Tsim Sha Tsui, then catch a half hour ferry from HK Island. The small town is a fishing village that the locals go to get away, but much more than that. It is quaint and clean and calm: no motorised traffic, so you can... More

Take the ferry outside IFC Hong Kong Station, and you will be at Cheng Chau within an hour, 1/2 hour if you take the fast boat. It is a small island that takes about 2-3 hours to walk around the island. There are beach front bars and restaurants. you will not regret visiting this place.

If you don't like the big fancy stores that line the streets of Kowloon and Wan Chai, then this is your place. Feels like a small fishing village that the locals go to get away. Shops selling baked goods, gourmet tea, beach gear and knick-knacks. You can rent bikes and tour the island. Fishing boats line the harbour and I... More

I loved the ferry ride to the island, the quiet, non-motorized small town feel of the island. And I loved the walk to a secluded part of the island.

No vehicles allowed on the island! reminded me of Hong Kong of yesteryear and the old way of life. Very romantic but not practical or easy living conditions.

Much better than when I lived in HK. Really clean these days and a good seafood meal at a realistic price.

For those of us who have been to Hong Kong several times and have run out of places to visit, think green, think Cheung Chau with absolutely no cars on the island. Take a half hour ferry at the ferry terminal on HK island. The island is famous for its fish balls. I had the best authentic wanton noodles served... More

Love this place! It is not too congested and you can also find cheap stuff at the shops. There are two fish tackle shops, however, they don't carry much of the high end brands. Most of them are china brand. To get there, you will need to travel to 中环 MTR followed by taking the fast ferry at pier 5... More

Although a lot of tourists visit this island, it isn't 'touristy' in an OTT way and much much quieter than HK. No cars on this island, although watch out you don't get run over by one of the many bicycles :-) Lots of little shops and eateries - make sure to visit the Hometown Teahouse situated near the beach, it's...

This little Island, easily reachable by Ferry, is close to Lantau Island. There are NO cars and you can stroll around easily! There are many seafood restaurants ... all with very good and fairly inexpensive food!
