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.

We spent a few days here and it was a blast. It's essentially a large village, the type you'd find in rural China. But the people and the surroundings are warm and friendly. The market was bustling during the CNY holiday and it was very cool to observe and interact. The street vendor food was great. Like everyone, we tried... More

Took a day trip to this island. Fast boat to, slow boat from. The boat trip, and especially the slow one, was really nice. You get to see some other islands and see Hong Kong island from a distance. Cheung chau is crowded and touristy. The first thing you see when exiting the ferry terminal is a McDonald's.
