Pleasant stroll around the island enjoying the scenery and ample food stalls and restaurants. If you like seafood, there is plenty there to choose from. Fish balls are a favourite that no one can go pass. Take your pick.

To get there, catch the ferry from Pier 5 Ferry Terminal. Fast ferry gets you there in 30 mins. Lots of tourist, with quaint shops selling dried seafood and souvenir. Seafood restaurants allow you to choose the live seafood from tanks for your meals. Girls enjoyed the new environment especially seeing how the seafood is sundried on the shore.

We came here as a loving couple and took a day off from the business of Hong Kong. And it was worth it. With a fast ferry the ride here is cheap and easy and upon arrival just turn left and walk the shore line, discovering a beautiful landscape, some really weird details (the park benches are sponsored by the...

This is well worth spending half a day to stroll around the whole island. Have lunch in any of the restaurants, food is always good & very reasonable. There are no cars, very relaxing. You'll see a totally different side of Hong Kong.

Best to visit on weekdays, it is less busy. We took a small junk for HK$50 to go around to the famous pirate tunnel and climb across the tunnel. Street food is rather expensive and not that interesting.

If you get tired of the traffic and skyscrapers take a ferry to Cheong Chau Island. Go to Pier 5 on the HK side of the ferry piers and depending on whether you took the slow or fast ferry you'll be glad when you get there. The only vehicles allowed are specialized ambulances and police vehicles that are narrow enough... More

We caught the ferry from Central (50 minute ordinary) and really enjoyed seeing a completely different side to Hong Kong. No high rise, no cars, old and young about on bicycles, lots of fishing boats and drying ocean goods. It felt real not touristy and showed another way of living so different to the city.

Cheung Chau is an island in Hong Kong. There are about only forty thousands population so it is quite comfortable. Cheung Chau is one of the famous tourist attractions in Hong Kong. The island has many tourist attractions, such as Cheung Po Tsai Tung, Pak Tai Temple and Cheung Chau Stone Carving. But there is no on-land public transport on... More

I often go to Hong Kong but it was my first time visiting Hong Kong’s island. We have a one day tour and it took about 1-hour to reach there by ferries. Unlike Hong Kong, people living in this island tend to be more carefree and tourists getting there can release their burden within the environment. There are beach, temples... More
