when you just need to get away from the hustle and bustle

when you just need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, hop on a ferry to this quaint island for a relaxed hike and sight-seeing of a different sort.

A great day trip. Take the ferry, rent some bikes and cruise around, hike and visit the secret pirate cave, stop at the beach and enjoy some treats off the street, and have a delicious meal by the water. A no car island that's a great place to chill out.

We went in the weekend, as a lot of hongkong people does... It has nice a nice beach, where is plenty of room. If you have the time it's a nice break in visiting the busy city. The nicest part is when you go back and enter Hongkong over the water. Take the slow boot, pay some hongkong dollar extra... More

We caught the fast ferry out and the slow ferry back. Beware the lower deck on the slow ferry is not air conditioned . Pay 18 HK$ for the deluxe rate. When you arrive you hit a vast number of tourist shops right and left. We turned left and walked for about half an hour up to a view point... More

Cheung Chau Island is a natural travel place where you can go on a relaxing holiday in Hong Kong. Even the Hongkong people would also go to Cheung Chau Island Tourism to take a vacation from downtown . Traffic route: Get out at Exit A in the Central subway station, then you should find Ferry Pier No. 5 where you... More

We love to leave the City and take the Slow Ferry to the Island for the Weekend. Lovely B&B with Super Staff, Fine Seafood by the Harbour and a Super Beach - What more do you Need?

...which was the only other time I have been to Cheung Chau. The ferry service to the island is dirt cheap and very much part of the experience. The only tragedy was getting off the boat and meeting a Mc Donalds takeaway. Thankfully, that was just about the only change apart from many more visitors than I remember from before.... More

A great island . Easy to get to by ferry. We like the slow ferry as you can sit outside and amaze at the size of some of the Ships coming to the port. The front has lots of shops( Mostly souvenirs) and restaurants,but the back streets are more interesting.More of a local feel.There are quieter restaurants around the bay... More

I had a couple of days to kill in HK after four weeks travelling my way through mainland China. After a quick look around at what to do, I saw this little fishing village in one of the guides on T.A. and opted to venture over. After mainland China and being in metropolis after city after mega-city, dodging cars, busses... More

Out of all the islands in Hong Kong, I love Cheung chau more than the others. Cheung chau has kept all it's traditional cultures and things. Great for sea food, this is also the place where the first person in Hong Kong achieved it's first gold medal.
