My wife and I took the ferry here from Hong Kong Island, near the Star Ferry terminus. The ferry ride was very enjoyable and gave a good view of the surrounding islands. The island itself was lovely and quiet. it was easy to walk around, visiting the fascinating shops, restaurants and temples. There are some lovely walks on the island... More

Peng Chau island was my choice of island this time around my trip to HongKong. For access to this island one needs to reach Central Pier and go to Pier 6 to take a boat to this island. The boat ride is through the choppy waters of the harbour but it takes only 30 minutes to reach this island. As... More

No one who has first visited this most cosmopolitan Asian city can imagine such a rustic side, kind of old Hong Kong, exists in a small outlining island just half an hour from pier 6 in Central, right by the Star Ferry terminal. It lies mostly unnoticed under the shadow of the bigger but more touristy Cheung Chau or Lammar... More

Peng Chau's attraction is that it's one of the poorer outlying islands near Hong Kong and therefore is less touristy and more natural and quiet. Like most of the outlying islands, there are no cars allowed. I think of it as a getaway and enjoy the boat ride from which one can see the beautiful mountain and water features of... More

Everytime i visit hong kong i like to stay in Peng Chau Island. The island is so quite and peaceful since there are no vehicles there only bicycles. The place is best for trekking and swimming.

Peng Chau is a wonderful place for a day or half day trip if you want to get away from the crowds and touristy places in Hong Kong. Although it probably should not be on top of your list if you only have a couple of days in town, it's perfect for those who regularly visit Hong Kong and wants... More

You reach this Island by taking a ferry at central ferry pier nb 6 40 min to reach the Island A lot of temples to see. You can climb to finger hill the top of the island There is also a market street Not the best thing to do if you stay less than 2 weeks in HK

Take no.6 ferry from Central to Peng Chau. It is a small island west of Hong Kong Island. Peng Chau is quiet and nice to stroll around; I walked from the ferry pier along the small roads like Sing Ka Road and down the hill to Tung Wan Beach. It's nice to spend 1/2 day in Peng Chau. Make sure... More

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
