Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong
1 - 8
Peng Chau is the smallest of the inhabited islands of Hong Kong at only 1.43 km2, yet it packs many interesting sights. A former major industrial area of Hong Kong, it is now much more laid back. Main attractions include several temples, the remains of the old factories and the Fisherman's Rock.
Next stop is Mui Wo on Lantau Island for lunch and a walk through the countryside, stopping at highlights like the Man Mo Temple and the Waterfall.
The third island of the day is Cheung Chau, a dumbbell shaped island, with a population of about 23,000 people. It is known for its quiet lifestyle and rich cultural history. Major sights include the Pak Tai temple, an ancient rock carving and the Cheung Po Tsai (a notorious pirate who lived from 1786 to 1822) cave.
Price includes guide fee. Extra cost: taxi your hotel to ferry pier and back, lunch and dinner, ferry tickets (about HKD 100 per person).
