Peng Chau island is small enough that you can walk around and never get lost! About a third of the size of neighbouring Cheung Chau, and linked to its neighbours by an inter-island ferry and kaido service, Peng Chau has many of the bigger island's charms, but on a more intimate scale. These include an attractive fishing harbour, a two-centuries-old Tin Hau Temple, a morning fish market and a small community whose warren of lanes reveals many aspects of traditional rural life. Hand-painted porcelain is a true cottage industry here.

For a pleasant walk through the village and surrounding hills, visitors can follow the sign-posted Family Trail. Afterwards, fresh seafood can be bought at the old pier and taken to nearby restaurants to be cooked.
How To Get There

Peng Chau is served by ferries from Central Pier 6 on Hong Kong Island. These operate at approximately 45/50 minute intervals until 23-30. There is also a ferry back from Peng Chau at 3-40am. Services mostly alternate between "ordinary" ferries and "fast" catamaran ferries. The journey takes about 25/30 minutes by Fast Ferry and 40 minutes by Ordinary Ferry.
