other Islands

There are over 200 "Outlying Islands" in Hong Kong, but only a few are inhabited or are interesting to visitors.  Of course Cheung Chau is the most well known and important to visit, if you can go only to one then of course Cheung Chau is a must.

Almost all visitors to Hong Kong actually have seen one other, that is Lantau because that is where the Hong Kong International Airport is located.

 

Lantau - Visit the rural and traditional parts of Lantau, not the airport, by taking the Inter Island ferry from Cheung Chau which goes to Mui Wo.  Although Lantau is by far the largest of the outlying islands it is lightly populated and most of the area is taken up by the country park, peaks and wooded areas.

Peng Chau - An even smaller island, similar to Cheung Chau but quieter.  It can also be reached via the inter island ferry.

Lamma - Medium sized with two distinct villages this island can only be reached directly from Hong Kong island, go to ferry Pier 4 for the ride, and is famed for seafood, hill walks and a slightly bohemian aired expatriate community. Lamma guide website

Food Restaurants

A lot of people come to Cheung Chau specifically for the food, and there are indeed a range of traditional and modern choices. As a historic fishing village it is of course very related to seafood, fish and marine products. Here you will find a full range of seafood dishes, but also traditional Hong Kong Cafe fare, Cantonese Dim Sum and international choices as well.

Catering to the large number of visitors who are coming to Cheung Chau for a seafood lunch or dinner there is a stretch of seafront with many seafood restaurants. Each one has tables by the sea as well as some indoor seating. Focusing on providing food for visitors it concentrates on rustic and traditional Cantonese presentations of seafood. Try a steamed fish with ginger and spring onion, stir fried little clams with chili, crispy deep fried squid or steamed garlic prawns. Typical accompaniments such as plain or fried rice, beef and broccoli stir fry and sweet and sour pork make for a complete meal and cater to those who do not like seafood.
