I've always had great food over here over the years. Any of the water front restaurants offer fine food at reasonable prices. this is the first time I stayed over night. There is even a small bar that sells stella on tap which my partner appreciated on Tung Wan Road. We were there for the run up to Bun Festival... More

famous for their fish balls, mostly in curry. fresh seafood for lunch if you stay away from ordering from the restaurants, buy the seafood from the pier and bring it to the restaurant ... they will cook it the way you want and charge you a surcharge. restaurant does not serve the fresh seafood you see selling by the dock....

We took and early ferry out to this island wondering about visiting the temple and seeing the preparations for their climbing festival that is coming up. Had the most fantastic sea for lunch in a very non descriptive looking restaurant on the water front, where you could see the fishing boats which double as homes for many. The island is... More

Great escape from the city to see this low-key fishing and retiree village. We enjoyed a nice stroll around the island to the pirate's cave and back to see the beach. Plus, no cars! Everyone gets around on bike.

We got the ferry over on Sunday and think if you wanted to enjoy this a little more you should go during the week. It was inexpensive to get the ferry and the food options on the island are plentiful and obviously cater mainly for day trippers and people coming for a couple of days. Decent amount of options to...

Island was interesting but not great. It is not a pretty island with large amounts of aging concrete buildings. One side of islands is bustling harbour with junks and fishing boats the other is a stretch of sand beach ......sounds nice but isnt attractive. Walk up to the cave and reclining rock was good but not really worth the day... More

My family of two teenage sons and my partner spent a week on Cheung Chau Island in Hong Kong. Our Accommodation was through air bnb at Olgierd's Place at Scenic Garden. We'd previously visited HK staying in a major hotel in Kowloon and were overwhelmed by the busyness and noise. So this trip we sought out a more peaceful location... More

We tried one of the new campsites, Sai Yuen, which is located on the south west side of the island. It's approximately 25 minutes walk from the pier, or 5 minutes mini-boat ride. The tents we rented weren't cheap but since Sai Yuen is still relatively new, TV promotions only started, we pretty much had the whole campsite to ourselves,... More

Had the best day trip out to this island. Pick up feet at central pier 5. Use octopus card. Known for it food, we weren't disappointed at all. Indulged in fish balls on stick (still dreaming about them) mango pastries, or lunch at one of the many waterfront restaurants. A local told us to go to New Baccarat for lunch,... More

Went on a day trip. Fast ferry takes around 30mins per way. U can use the octopus card to pay for yr ride. Popular get away for locals. U can find many types of dried seafood for sale & fresh seafood restaurants. There are more restaurants on the left side after coming out from the ferry terminal. The seafood was... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
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 late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
