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

Small island. Very laid back. Spend a morning here is enough. The small restaurants looks interesting. The fishermen were on strike when I was there so missed out the seafood.

We took the 50 min ferry ride from Central to Peng Chau. The crossing was smooth and calm. Upon our arrival we were pleasantly surprised to so NO CARS, NO BUSES OR TRUCKS.... Only bicycles and small hand controlled trolleys. The Island is small with only 5,500 or so permanent residents. You can walk up Finger Hill for good views... More

Catching the ferry to Peng Chau was a snap decision, made on the Chinese New Year weekend, after we found very long queues for the Lamma Island ferry. But it turned out to be a good decision, as Peng Chau is less developed and touristy than Lamma Island and we got to spend a relaxing day in the sun. There... More

It was less crowded than other islands I visited. Maybe because I went on a weekday. I visited Lamma Island and Cheung Chau before. It was long hike up Finger Hill. So wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. The staircase up the hill was pretty narrow. I was lost at first finding Finger Hill when I got... More

Away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, and less commercial than the other outlying islands, Peng Chau is a great place for a day trip. Immerse yourself in quiet rural life with the locals. Try the local shrimp toast!
