Peng Chau is a tiny island, without cars or anything noisier than a bicycle. We loved its maze of narrow lanes, the walk across the island to the beach on the other side, the temples, especially Tin Hau, at the back of the main square near the ferry terminal. There is absolutely no "bling" to this place, rather, it is... More

I just got back from a day-trip to Peng Chau Island. It is a tiny, sleepy island just off Lantau Island. If you have had enough of bustling Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, you might want to visit Peng Chau. It is definitely not a must-see bucket-list item, though! Go there if you want peace and quiet, want to see... More

Most of the restaurant were closed even on public holidays, not many things to see there. The only thing interesting is that we went to discovery bay by taking a old ferry, it stopped in a isolated place called "trappist diary".

After living in Hong Kong for 3 years back in the 90s, and making numerous visits to lama, Lantau and Cheung chau, I thought I'd pretty much taken in all the outlying islands. But on a short visit to Hong Kong, and inspired by the recent movie "wong Ka yan", I took the half hour ferry trip to peng chau... More

One of my most enjoyable days spent in HK has been spent wandering around Peng Chau. There is a heritage route which is both interesting and well sign posted, although a few more maps dotted about the island would help those who didn't want to follow the exact order of the signposts (we went back to take a photo of...

I was lucky enough to stay on the island of Peng Chau for a few nights as my friend originally comes from this island. It was a much needed retreat from Hong Kong's hustle and bustle, noise, transport, & over sized sky scrapers. Here you can see blue skies, the beach, miles around you and local life. This is a...

This is one of the smaller islands that can be reached by ferry from Hong Kong central. You land at the centre of the island and can take circular walks around the northern and southern ends of the island. We headed north along the footpath and found a series of tiny sandy beaches, perfect for a quiet day in better... More

Peng Chau (or Peng Chou) is one of the many outlying islands in Hong Kong. However, unlike some of the other bigger islands, it often gets neglected or talked about much. Which is precisely why it's makes for a quiet and relaxing day trip away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.

only 20 minutes from Central Pier 6, this island is completely different to HK Island and so much more laid back. Lots of little cafes and restaurants. Worth a visit.
