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

Plenty of old world charm for just an hour ferry ride away. Loved the rustic feel of the place and you can simply navigate yourself around the island by either walking or cycling. There's also many seafood restaurants around to pick from with set lunch prices starting from around HKD80 to HKD120 a person for a 8-course menu. The more... More

A cute fishing island off Hong Kong, we came and spent an afternoon. We walked across a beach, over the 'little great wall' and across the island. Then finished with some fish balls and mango mochi from the square. The boat is very inexpensive and takes around 40 minutes.

Waldo you want to get away from the city...for just a while? I do think I could stay here for a few days, Summer must be busy. Ferry ride 45 minutes and smooth at the mid stern. Esplanade of restaurants we chose open fronted eatery and the choice was spot on. Lightly battered S&P calamari. Garlic Prawns in shell, scallops... More

We went over on the fast ferry (our first mistake) It was busy and people who are busy on their phones & computers taking up all the window seats. We could only get middle seats after we asked people to put their bags on the floor or their laps. The island is an easy walk but has little to do... More

Spend more a day at Cheung Chau Island and explore Cheung Po Chai trail, Tung lo wan, back alley of shops and houses, local delicacies. Rent a bicycle for easier access.

It is a short ferry ride from Kowloon ferry terminal, very easy to find your way. Once on the island, it is just walking and soaking in the atmosphere. Plenty of sea food, and many small shops selling dried foods, clothes and nicknacks.

Take a slow or fast ferry from pier 4 on Hongkong island. Pay with your MRT Octopus card. Immerse yourself into hundreds of locals and experience an equally crowded island. If you have lots of time: Do it !

You cannot describe Cheung Chau Island as a fishing village any longer. But it still has lots of interesting small shops that sell dried seafood during the day. The best fun are the hawker carts in the late evening that sell everything that's fried! Lots of fun for a late night snack.

Thank Labuanlady
