Ferry journey from pier 5 Central. About 45 minutes. Very full and had to sit separately on top deck. All 4 of us were travel sick. Top tip: less likely to get sick on lower deck. Shore line with foodstores and shops selling cheap tad. Beach unimpressive. You can either walk or hire bike to get around the island. The... More

The title expresses my thoughts as I travelled towards Cheung Chau Island. I did not read the sign and thought I was getting on the Star Ferry. So imagine my surprise when Kowloon skyline became a distant vista. In fact I hadn't got a clue where I was going and as I got on the slow ferry it took and... More

I went there early on a Saturday morning. I was on the ferry for Cheung Chau at about 9am. The ferry terminal was easy to find and about 10-15 mins walk from Central MTR. I went for a walk along the beach stopping at Kwun Yam temple and continuing on towards the Mini Great Wall. I retraced my steps after... More

A visit of Cheung Chau Island is a great daytime escape from the hustle and bustle of HK Island or Tsim Sha Tsui. Take a ferry from the Ferry Piers next to the IFC and , depending on which type of ferry you take, you'll get to Cheung Chau in 30 minutes or just under an hour. Other than ambulances,... More

with a nice cold bear, we chose a crowded one, it was great service, and delicious food. Excellent price range. Swimming experience was great.

Cheung Chau is sure to enthral you if you want to get away from Hong Kong crowd/ traffic/ urbanity and experience more local culture and food. A smallish island that makes an excellent half or one-day trip. A cycling path circumscribes the island which makes it convenient to explore the place by cycling.. along the sea (for most part) passing... More

Was recommended a trip here by friends in Oz - and definitely worth a look. Took an hour long boat ride from Central. Hired bikes and toured round the small town. Interesting houses in the back streets and seeing the fish drying in the streets.

Quaint island worth the 45 ferry trip. A good walk up to the summit with great views back to Hong Kong. Interesting harbour and small town. Some of the best cheap fresh seafood to be found in Hong Kong at the harbour side restaurants. Nothing pretentious but just good. Choose your own fish/seafood from the tank and then eat. Wonderful

We took the ferry and paid a bit more for the deluxe ticket which is upstairs and air conditioned. Nice ferry ride past a series of small islands. Venture outside as well onto the deck for a lovely peaceful view. On reaching the island you will find an esplanade lined with some little touristy shops selling cheap bits and pieces.... More

Cheung Chau is a small island near the Lantau island of Hong Kong. It takes about an hour to get to the island by ferry from Central. There are a few beaches there, with several restaurants tucked in and around. We stayed at an old army camp - the Bradbury, which was a little old, but nevertheless, pretty good fun.... More
