If you want to get away from busy Hong Kong for a day then Cheung Chau island is the place to visit. Advise taking the slow relaxing ferry trip from pier on Hong Kong island. It takes just under an hour.Once on the island itself there are plenty of walks along with cafes and restaurants. It is a fishing port,... More

An island that seems a break destination for thais and filipinos from Hong Kong , its grimy and busy. We walked to the beach where the olympic windsurfer Lee Lai-Shan 1996 medal winner trained,the windsurfing school looked closed and overgrown and rather dilapidated. Even though the guide books say it is run by her parents. Just by there, is a... More

To reach Cheung Chau you must take either a ferry from the China Ferry Pier or the Inter Island ferry and there are fast or normal ferries available depending on your preference and budget. The ride over is enjoyable riding the waves and watching the skyscrapers, boats and islands pass by. Once on the island there are ranging activties to... More

Walking through the town reminds me of old Hong Kong about 20 years ago. Small mom & pop shops, nice restaurants, beach is nice, one day will visit when the weather is not so hot in September

It's an island west of HK Island. Pace is much slower here than in HK/Kowloon. Take a ferry from Central and enjoy the harbor view and coastal view along the way (about 1 hour trip depends on type of ferry). Upon arrival, you can see shops and restaurants next to the ferry terminal. Street and city map allow you to... More

If you are spending a couple of days in HK you definitely have to take this three hrs experience to your plan. Ferry is fast, the island is small to visit and the seafood is cheap and amazing. If you like to take pictures here is the perfect place especially at the sunset. Of course don't expect anything fancy but... More

I love this little place! It was so relaxing to get away from the crowds of Hong Kong and settle into a place that is primarily still populated by locals. Whether it's enjoying the view of the sea and fishing boats or practicing tai chi in the basketball court, this is a perfect getaway. I'm no a huge fan of... More

We took a ferry trip ( an hour or so from memory) to This Island and were fascinated with the quaint little streets and even tiny cars for the Fire Dept and Ambulances so they can access most houses. We had lunch at one of the many little restaurants on the waterfront overlooking the hundreds of fishing boats and men... More
