It only takes 30 minutes by ferry from Central to Peng Chau. Peng Chau is basically only one long road and 10 minutes from Ferry Pier to the Beach. This beach is not for swimming, only for kids to play the sand. Less than 10 local cafeteria on the island, all small. We did not go up to the hill.... More

The best and worst thing about this island is nothing exciting goes on. It's just people living their slow lives, chatting with their neighbours and walking their dogs. On weekdays there are very few tourists. Best food on the island is at Wah Hing chinese restaurant and a Thai restaurant in the street before the Tin Hau Temple. Good to... More

The ferry journey to and from the island only adds to charm of Peng Chau. The shops and restaurants offer a great choice, the two beaches are great but for me the coastal walk and being stunned by the rock formations was the highlight. I guess weekends it's really busy but I traveled on Tuesday and it was fine.

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
