Good to escape to when tired of HK's masses/messiness. A nice quiet, slow and quaint island where you can wonder around than catch a nice seafood meal by the water front. Weekdays are quiet, weekends, not so as everyone else have the same escapist idea.

Well worth the ferry ride from Pier 5, Central. Use your Octopus card and enjoy the fast or slow ferry to the island. When you step off the ferry you immediately become immersed into this fishing village, explore the streets, hire a bike or sit down for a seafood meal. Everyone is friendly and helpful but stay out of the... More

Bikes bikes bikes everywhere...its wonderful to see. The harbor is filled with fishing boats and the island is filled with wonderful temples, beautiful greenery and the scenery is breathtaking. Cheap to... More

Cheung Chau Island consists of old villages outside the busy city of Hong Kong. Going there is not a problem as it is just 30 minutes ferry ride from Hong Kong (board at Terminal 5). One way price range from HKD17 to 25 depending on the class. Have a leisure walk along the coastline or rent a bike and explore... More

This is a fantastic day trip. Or come longer and stay the night. Coming here is like going on holiday from Hong Kong and only a short cheap ferry ride away. My young boys loved the ferry ride. The beaches were beautiful so bring your swimming gear. We had fresh seafood from one of the many small restaurants. And spent... More

It was very nice to feel completely different atmosphere compared to hongkong in city. Rent a bicycle and you'll be good to explore in this island, it will cost you hkd 50 as I remember. Yeah unfortunately it's not cheap everything in HK. The beaches was not bad. Don't forget to try mango mochi too while in here, its very... More

Had a wonderful evening at this island. Feels like back to the olden days where the only means of transport is bicycle. The people in Cheung Chau are friendly and cheerful, unlike cities people who are mostly rude and lifestyle are hectic. It a really nice island to get away from the cities and chill out. Food are nice and... More

Ideally when it is not too hot take the slow or fast ferry to this Island. Fishing port with lots of cheap shops and harbour cafes. Ideal in the evening. Has a nice sandy beach safe to swim. Can have a good stroll round the island with a couple of 1 hour walks and difficult to get lost. I only... More

Took the fast ferry to the island and walked from the dock to first south end and then north end, through the cave and ready for the ferry home in under 4 hours. If you have a spare morning or afternoon it is worth a visit. 2 of the temples are well maintained while the others are about to fall... More
