Went on a day trip to Cheung Chau island. It is about 1 hour ferry ride from the Central ferry pier but 50 years back in time. You get to enjoy the quiet laid back ambiance of a fishing village as it used to be 50 or 60 years ago. There is plenty of good seafood to enjoy and a... More

A short ferry ride away from bustling Hong Kong, is this island where time stands still. The only vehicle I ever saw there was a hearse, and that was a privilege. Stroll around the back streets, and listen to them playing mah jong. Check out the temple and the market. It's not so crowded and everything seems older. Make sure... More

Just spent an afternoon there. Not too much to see,honestly, but the food makes the way worth. I would recommend it after Lamma Island.

The island is 1h away or less on a fast ferry. landing on the island gives you the feeling you are NOT in the metropolis os HK. friendly folks but still touristy as they are counting on you for their daily living. try the back streets, up the hills, away from the main streets. you will find you are in...

One of my friends from Hong Kong took me to Cheung Chau Island. It's a 30 minutes ferry ride from the pier near the Central MTR. You can pay for your ride with your Octopus card - which is very handy. There are quite a number of activities to be done on the island. There are caves where you can... More

No Cars on this island! Take a ferry from Hong Kong and pay with your Octopus Card, it's that easy. Rent a bike or hike all day and then have a nice meal at a local restaurant. Snack on a Ping On Bao. It's the traditional Bao that is used in the annual Bun Festival celebration.

If you want something different from the big city, well... this island will do they job. Great snacks, some shopping, interesting scenery, beaches and fresh seafood. Probably too touristy for some people, but if you explore carefully, you will find the right spot for you. Don't book a tour. You can go easily in your own.

The little harbour there is busy with all sizes of boats and fishermen sorting out their catch. There are restaurants along the waterfront where... More

HK$37 pp on the ferry from pier 5 on HK Island, about 30 minutes to 'the other' side of Chung Chau. A very busy fishing village with as many bikes as boats parked up along the harbour. Many small shops and restaurants along the front, live fish and shellfish on display, dried fish too. Venture into a bar and or... More
