It was my first time there. You can get to try the local seafood and the mango sticky rice ball is really good. There are some shoppings on the main road. Also, if you want to hike up the mountains you can do it too.

We took the boat from Hongkong terminal to Cheung Chau and we only hiked the island and well back at the terminal we had a snack in a local bakery. I wouldn't recommend spending a whole day here but two or three hours will be perfect. There is only one trail around and it a concrete path. It is at... More

This is a must go place if you visit Hong Kong. Take a walk around the island and try the local snacks. A special experience.

Really enjoyed the boat trip there which was cheap. Once we got there we decided to explore the island which can be done easily, as they have numerous posts with maps on which provide directions. We initially made our way to the Kwan Kung Pavilion meandering our way through the narrow stall filled streets. The stalls were not expensive and... More

A nice experience for a day-trip. You get to see a whole different side of Hong Kong. There is also a nice beach, so bring a suit and towel.

an escape to Cheung Chau is always a welcome diversion from the hustle and bustle of HK Island and Central. This time, we visited Cheung Po Tsai Cave on Cheung Chau, accessible by a 20-25 walk from the Cheung Chau Pier. The cave itself is very narrow, dark and nothing for the claustrophobic. You should have a good torch or... More

After the frantic pace of Hong Kong this island offers an oasis away from cars. There are a number of interesting walks and places to see. Wonderful for a fresh seafood lunch!

Take the ferry from Central or Aberdeen. Lovely boat ride - take the slow one and enjoy. Stroll the island, browse, eat at one of the many seaside restaurants.

Love the street food and desserts there! It's not a typical tourist attraction or where escorted tours go.

Just a 60min ferry ride from Central Pier, this island is popular with locals and tourists. You feel transported back in time to an idylic slow island life, everything is laid back, the streets are old and narrow, the stores sell toys from past era and some childhood treats that you may have forgotten. The best way to see the... More
