Shopping on Cheung Chau

While not a major shopping destination there are no shortage of interesting items for sale on the island. Try walking along the waterfront promenade and you will find many small shops selling trinkets and souvenirs of the island. This is a great place to pick up some fashion jewelry, ethnic clothing from China and beyond and small handicrafts such as the ever popular bamboo whistles.

Dried and preserved seafood is the most unique item on sale here, all made locally and fresh and flavourful this is a popular item to purchase for those who are visiting from elsewhere in Hong Kong. 

Try the jars of shrimp paste as an easy to transport example of traditional Cheung Chau flavours, often served with vegetables and squid it also makes some great tasty fried chicken wings.

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.
