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

GETTING 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.
