Easy access by ferry, for a half day trip. Crowded when you arrive, but very quiet as soon as you climb through the forest. Beautiful small beaches all around. Mini great-wall, rocks, specific flora. Easy to get lost, even when you follow the signages. Scenic views from time to time. Popular with locals. Good for jogging, however not an easy... More

During our recent trip to Hong Kong in May, my partner and I decided to visit the island for a new experience. It was a right choice. The island is about 1 hour ferry ride away from the main city. Once arrived there, it felt like we have stepped back in time to 80s Hong Kong. A rural village with... More

Take the ferry to this island for a half day trip. Walk around the island and do some eating and hit the beaches. Several motels too

Cheung Chau is a rather quirky and rural island. However, I love it very much for the peacefulness and the different views throughout the island. I walked about half of the island on foot and managed to find the Lucky Bun. The lucky bun consist of salted egg yollk and either red bean or lotus filling. Bought the lucky bun... More

While urban Hong Kong island is completely modernized, there are still some old fashioned rural aspects to be observed in this outlying island. Reached by slow ferry so it is a half day trip suitable only for those who hae a lot of time in HKG. For Westerners Lamma Island is better.

If you have a half a day to spare and looking for a diversion from the city this is it. We took the MTR to Central and then took a ferry from the ferry pier 5 just in front of the IFC Mall. There are two types of ferries the fast and slow. the slow one allows for a good... More

This island is quirky and less built up than Hong Kong island. The streets are unfortunately always crowded and busy, it is a very popular place. But it's worth a visit, we have been there several times and I never get tired of the place. Good seafood along the water front promenade, and great beaches the other side of the... More

Cheung Chau is the place to go if you are looking for some beach out, hiking, cycling, and street food. Half a day here is enough unless you are going to laze on the beach or visit every POIs here. Tips: Bring sunblock and hat, it is very sunny with little shelter

We left for Cheng Chau Island in the evening. We learned that this place offered a walk "back-in-time" & it also had nice spread of seafood. We ended up having dinner at this rustic place - mantis prawns, fried sotong (cuttlefish), fried rice with white-of-egg, steamed fish, etc. We were introduced to Blue (or Lam Mooi in Cantonese) Girl beer....

The place is far but so easy to reach. The visit is also economical and convenient. There are lots of choice for food and sightseeing. The famous fish ball noodle soup and seafood are their specialities.
