Cheung Chau is probably the most popular island in Hong Kong. A good news for foodlovers~~ You may discover a lot of delicious snacks here such as the famous Cheung Chau giant deep fried fish ball and many restaurants open till mid-night. Also many Hong Kongers come to Cheung Chau to see the “grab bun competition” and colorful parades with... More

Many traditional shop there. Own theme restaurant by the local owners. The fish ball stall near the jetty is the best with 3 favours... More

When we got on the ferry at Central we already noticed the large group getting on with us. First indication of how popular Cheung Chau is. My first impression was that it is much busier as well a bit more modern than, for example Lamma or Peng Chau. There are a lot of shops (Park n Shop, Mc Donalds, supermarkets... More

Cheung Chau Island is only an hour away by ferry from Central. There were bicycles for rent to tour the island. I preferred to walk. Lots of yummy food and interesting souvenirs. My favourite food on the day was the Mango sticky sweet dumplings. Each one was individually wrapped. We hired a fishing boat to go to the famous Cheung... More

One arrival it was a bit of a chaotic harbour front with shops, restaurants and loads of people. we walked back a couple of streets and it... More

Well worth taking a daytrip to Cheung Chau Island when visiting Hong Kong. A very nice local fishing village just outside Hong Kong, and not so many european tourists here.. Several traditional fishing stalls here with all kind of local fish and "strange" seafood. However we ended up eating "safe" at a nice pizza restaurant, owned by an american from... More

Cheung Chau is famous of its Buns Festival, unfortunately, i have never witnessed it before. Take a 40 to 50 mins ferry ride from Central station to Cheung Chau. You may also rent bicycles to travel around the island. Lots of local food, desserts are available here. The fishball noodles shop in front of the port is super delicious! Spare... More

We have been to Cheung Chau a couple of times now and I will always look forward to the next visit. A fishing village that time forgot, not far from the most expensive real estate in the world. A very relaxing ferry ride from Central. The food was amazing and inexpensive compared to Australian standards if you like obscure seafood.... More

The atmosphere here is relaxed and everyone simply goes about daily life with a minimum of fuss. The mode of transport here is bike or walking and there is a few vehicles which are for the Police, Ambulance and Fire Brigade. It is a small fishing village and has a lot of interesting shops selling all sorts of stuff. We... More
