Cheung Chau is an island 10 km southwest of Hong Kong Island. It is nicknamed the "dumbbell island" due to its shape. It has a very quaint and picturesque harbor bustling with activity. Fishing vessels, trawlers, junks, and sampans cross back and forth throughout the day. Cheung Chau also has a lovely waterfront promenade lined with cafes, souvenir shops, seafood restaurants, and dried food stalls. Although small, there is lots to do on Cheung Chau and visitors can easily spend a day or two exploring. There are the beaches, small temples, and short hikes to catch some splendid views. A highlight is the annual Cheung Chau Bun Festival, a week of colorful celebrations held normally in May.

Cheung Chau is a small barbell-shaped island, filled with culture, history and stunning scenery. Visit Pak Tai Temple on the island, a Taoist temple featuring traditional Chinese architecture. After that, you can stop at Tung Wan Beach which is a favorite beach among swimmers, surfers and rowers. Here too, see 3,000-year-old bronze age rocks with geometric patterns and interesting abstract animal images. The adventure continues with a 20-minute wooden sampan ride to the famous local pirate hideout. At the end of the tour, you have the opportunity to stop at Tung Wan Beach, this temple invites you to worship the Goddess of the Sea. Complete your tour by eating dim sum as a lunch menu. Well, this is the perfect island for a vacation, isn't it?
Kids who love boat rides can get their fill in Hong Kong between the Star Ferry, Duk Ling, Aqua Luna, dolphin watching, and taking the ferries to outlying islands where the buzz of a big city is less noticeable.
The two most popular islands for day trips (or half-day trips) are Cheung Chau, which is famous for the annual bun festival in May (if you are in Hong Kong in May, this festival is a must), and Lamma Island, another fishing village.
When it comes to Hong Kong, everyone's impression must be all kinds of skyscrapers and buying and selling. But in addition to Hong Kong's main island, there are many good humanities and natural landscapes around it. If you only have one day to travel around Hong Kong, Then Cheung Chau Island is a very nice place. Everyone who often watches Hong Kong movies knows that Cheung Chau Island is the "Maldives" in the minds of McDull. It is also the place where Mai Tai finally took McDull. The traffic to Cheung Chau Island is very convenient. After arriving at Hong Kong Central, you will continue to the pier. At Pier 5, you can take a ferry to Cheung Chau Island. Here is a special reminder, if you are seasick or have a slight fear of heights (as to why you say this, you will know when you go to sit once), it is recommended not to take the Clippers, take a slow boat (less than 1 hour). As the port fades away, the ferry enters the deep sea, and when rows of small colored fishing boats appear in your sight, you arrive at this beautiful fishing village. The disembarkation pier is the most lively place on the island. Various tourists and vendors gather here. There are many famous street foods in Hong Kong that can be eaten here. Fish eggs are a very recommended snack, a string of ten Hong Kong dollars. But don't eat staple foods when you are on the boat, because your stomach is left for other foods. Eating is one of the biggest missions on Cheung Chau Island. Fish eggs, glutinous rice bran, ice-cream watermelon slices, glutinous rice, and all kinds of seafood cheaper than Hong Kong are snacks you should not miss, but remember to come back. Change some Hong Kong dollars, because many of the stalls do not support WeChat, Alipay payment.
There are many places to rent a double car on Cheung Chau Island, but I don't think it is necessary to rent. Although there is no public transportation such as buses on Cheung Chau Island, the island is not big. It takes 1-2 hours to walk, and it is very pleasant to take a walk and enjoy the scenery. Passing through the food street, there are fewer and fewer tourists, all the way to the residential area on the island, where the literary atmosphere of the old fishing village of Hong Kong is preserved, the retro streets, the low-rise buildings, the folk customs are very simple, the white and green light colors The building makes people feel very comfortable. Although Cheung Chau Island is not hot, there are many attractions, such as Yuxu Palace, Zhangbaozi Cave, Taipingqing Reef, and Changzhou. If you are not in a hurry to return to Hong Kong, you can take a turn here and feel the beauty of Changzhou Island. .

Changzhou is a sea away from Hong Kong Island. This section of the sea makes Cheung Chau a simple paradise, and now it still maintains a strong fishing situation and "Taiping" Clear." Cheung Chau people need to go to Hong Kong to study, graduate from high school, and continue to study in Changzhou to leave this bleak, go to Hong Kong Island world-class universities to learn international advanced knowledge and culture. The rest of the family and the old and weak women stayed in Cheung Chau, blowing the sweet sea breeze and living a slow-paced day. In this place where chickens and dogs meet, people like to be serious and fanciful. No one will swear by the lack of reading. So this seemingly innocent and every custom is being passed down seriously.
It is easy to capture the beautiful scenery of the seaside and the portraits full of local characteristics in Cheung Chau. These are the best scenery.
