The island is actually pretty small. You can walk across the middle in a few minutes, which is really cool! The beach isn't very nice. There is a lot of garbage everywhere on the beach, it pretty gross. I would recommend hiking up the mountains...More

...of the island on the title page: it goes no way to show how lovely Cheung Chau is! In contrast to disappointing Lamma, this has several pretty beaches and a charming seafront town area. Definitely coming back to see more of the island soon...

If you're tired of the hustle and bustle of Central and TST, just hop on the ferry and cross over to Cheung Chau Island. An old fishing port that is now famous for its seafood restaurants on the promenade, fresh melon and mango smoothies and...More

I have been to Hong Kong several times but never to this Island until this most recent trip. I enjoyed the Island, not as much as some have said, still worth seeing though. No cars on the Island and it is small enough that you...More

No trip to Hong Kong would be complete without a ferry ride from Central over the blue choppy harbour waters to Cheung Chau Island.. the fast ferry takes 30 minutes and all the sweltering heat of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon is left behind in...More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
