Another day trip in one of the beautiful Island in Hong Kong – CHEUNG CHAU ISLAND
Cheung Chau is an island 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) southwest of Hong Kong Island. The only way you can go here is by ferry from Central (pier #5).
We arrived at 10:30am and left 5:05pm. So, basically we spent 6 and half hours strolling around the island including pictures taking, swimming, lunch and rest. Although the island is small you can do a lot of things in one day. The island also offer a lot of instagrammable spots, beaches, restaurants, small temples and souvenir shops.
They also have guest houses and hotels if you want to stay for few days which is better especially during Cheung Chau Ban Festival
Cheung Chau Ferry Pier
As soon as you go out from the pier you will see a small map on the right side of the pier for your reference. Make sure to look at it.

Restaurant / coffee & tea shops
There are a lot of restaurants, tea shops and street foods in the island and make sure to try some of them.
These pictures are some of the souvenir shop, there are a lot more so make sure check them out.
Make sure to bring extra clothes and swim suit if you will go during summer. There’s changing room and toilet around the beach so no need to worry.
Due to inaccessibility to cars and other vehicles, most residents use bicycles for personal transportation, and a number of bicycle rental shops near the ferry pier rent bicycles to tourists. The only vehicles on the island are those used by the emergency services, as well as village vehicles used to transport goods.
