My wife and I have visited Hong Kong before, but never ventured out to any of the islands nearby. Well, after a bit of research on Tripadvisor, we decided to take a day, leave the hustle bustle of Hong Kong, and see another side of the region. We took the 'fast' ferry (First Ferry) from the Central Pier to Cheung... More

Definitely a place to visit if you are planning for a Hong Kong trip...great and unforgettable seafood dining experience. Drop by Cheung Chau Market for a seafood selection and pick your freshest ingredients off the tank and hang out around at one of the family's restaurant operating along the shore and ask them to whip up a meal or two...

Great day trip - small fishing village. We road bikes around the entire island. Worth checking out the cave, the beaches are great, lots of small temples. The food to the left of the ferry terminal was excellent.

I took the ferry over to the island thinking it would be delightful but it was very crowded, not very nice smells, and quite frankly not worth the effort. I did sit and watch the beach for a while, it would be nice to swim and there were places to change.

Quite easy to take a ferry from behind IFC to this little lovely fishing village famous for her fish balls and "Ping An" buns. It's very relaxing to walk along the small streets where you can find some interesting handicraft shops and dried seafood. Sunset is lovely and you will find that there are many stalls that serve cheap and... More

About an hour's ferry ride from Hong Kong Island, Cheung Chau Island offers a glimpse into a different side of Hong Kong. The concrete jungle is replaced by 3-4 storey terraces on Cheung Chau. Instead of cars, people get around the island on foot, by bicycle or odd-looking motorised cycles. It's famous for giant fish balls, which are sold from... More

Ferry from pier 5 was fine, strollers or wheelchairs would have no problem getting on, smooth crossing, had a wander around, very accessible, had lunch at Hong Kee restaurant on the front which was pleasant enough, decent seafood and service, beach was easy to get to - though the weather prevented enjoying it too much! Worth a trip to escape... More

We have been here before and spent the day on the beach but that was September and this was November so decided to go in the afternoon, have a late lunch and travel back as the sun was setting. We did exactly this catching a ferry from Central Pier and after a brief wander around we returned to our old... More
