This small island is very different to the main island. There are no cars, tall buildings and big crowds. A pleasant ferry ride sets the tone for a relaxed visit to the island. There is a good selection of eateries on the beachfront and there are many of interesting lanes amongst the houses. There are also a number of small... More

travel too central by mtr and exit A head to outer island central pier 6. Easy ferry across, buy snacks and drinks at welcome mart right at ferry terminal, walk to finger hill, enjoy your snacks, walk down again and enjoy a wine at the French bar (nice noodles next door) then head back to HK. Nice relaxing day!

Peng Chau is wonderful place to step back in time while visiting Hong Kong. Life happens at an easy pace on this small island and feels quite untouched walking the alleyways and the well defined and signposted walks across the island. The views of Hong Kong Island are very good. We had first visited Discovery Bay (don't bother!) however there... More

A good option for an easy day trip while in Hong Kong is to take the ferry to Peng Chau. The ferry takes about 30 minutes but once you get to Peng Chau you can explore the the hidden back alleys with stalls and shops for the locals. Take the time to visit the Temples and if you are game... More

Easy ferry ride to this small island off the coast of Hong kong. Enjoyed a walk to the top of the island and through all the trails. Dim sum in one of the restaurants here was a fabulous lunch stop. Enjoyable and typically Chinese village after the high rise of Hong kong

Looking for an escape from the hustle/craziness of the 'city' I decided to take the ferry over to Peng Chau. I caught the ferry from Pier 6 (Central District). The ride took about 30 minutes. With no cars on the island it was a pleasure to explore on foot without having to watch for traffic or inhale exhaust. Close to... More

Had always wanted to head to Peng Chau and finally did. It's a really small island that can be covered in an afternoon. A small community stays on the island with a couple of restaurants and a cafe that carters to the 'tourists' that drop by. It's a good place to get away from the city for an idyllic day... More

Whilst in Hong Kong, take a ferry trip to Peng Chau, I think it might be Pier 6. The boat ride isn't very long, well worth it because it is a lovely peaceful island worth a short days' visit. Very few vehicles except bicycles. Lovely just walking around the island via a coastal path, it won't take you long, it... More

We took the ferry boat to Peng chau from Discovery Bay....the ferry has very limited service; during the week, the last ferry comes back to Discovery Bay at around 5:30pm, so we went on a weekend when the ferry service runs a little later. Our purpose for going there was to have Thai food at a local, family run restaurant... More
