its a good place if you enjoy cycling. i would suggest to go for day trip rather than overnight as you would get really bored after evening. a lot of local food to taste, eg, giant fish ball, baked fresh osyter, chicken wing in swiss sauce, and some local delicacies made by local women. we particularly love the pineapple bun...

If you have 3 or mor full days in Hong Kong, the trip to Cheung Chau has to be on your "to do" list. So completely different to Hong Kong itself. We were there in the afternoon, and it was amazing to see all the small children riding their bikes and scooters home from school and playing in the streets.... More

Some of the ferries over to CHeung Chow are fast and some slower. If you go on a slower one you can sit out on deck and take away some amazing memories. When you come out of the ferry terminal in Cheung Chow turn left and choose which one of the fish restaurants you like the look of - you... More

A short 50 minute slow ferry ride from Pier 5 in Hong Kong Central that cost an oldie like me 10HK$ for a deluxe class seat and you are in another world. No high rise buildings, no department stores and no cars, busses or trains. Just bicycles, small old fashioned local shops of every sort, fishing boats, seafood restaurants, amazing... More

First an admission. I live in Hong Kong so I have been to Cheung Chau many times, but on this occasion it was a fabulous day with my friends and we explored the whole island and afterwards had a superb seafood meal on the harbour side washed down with ice cold blue girl beer. If you want to escape the... More

This island was a short ferry ride from Hong Kong but a totally different vibe. Nice to get away from the hustle & bustle of HK & relax by the beach. Very pretty with great scenery while hiking around the island. Quite a few pretty good dining options especially if you like seafood.

Can spend some nights if you have time. Seafood are also nice here and fish balls are real awesome. Better come in week days as weekend is always fully packed.

Really enjoyed the ferry trip, and very inexpensive. Interesting to see other places you would not get to see unless you took this ferry trip. The island itself is a great place to take a stroll, see the beach, temple, housing etc. The little restaurants all have so many varieties of food. Seafood is a major attraction for us, so... More
