Outlying Islands



Bring your camera with you when you visit the Tai O Fishing village. Hong Kong sightseeing is not limited to just shopping and dining in Kowloon or Hong Kong Island. Many forget the option to take a daytrip to Lamma Island or a trip to Lantau Island to visit the Big Buddha. There are buses that take you to Mui Wo from the big buddha and often the scenery on the bus trip is a great draw.

For temples, beaches and gorgeous hiking trails and not to mention great seafood - the best outlying island would definately be Cheung Chau. The Cheung Chau Bun Festival happens once a year around the end of April to the start of May and involves a fierce competition to climb up a cone shaped scaffolding stuck with Chinese steamed buns to see who can get to the top first.

Don't forget that Hong Kong Disneyland on Lantau Island is not just for kids, whilst mickey mouse and all are bound to have been easternised, the park also features two enchanting hotels and a wide range of souvenir shopping and dining options.

Peng Chau is pronounced in Cantonese 'Ping Chau' and lies right off the shore of Lantau Island, a little quaint hamlet home to mostly elderly and the retired whose lifestyles have changed little since the industrialisation of Hong Kong. Peng Chau's main source of income is still fishing and is worth a visit if you can't make up your mind whether to visit Lamma Island or Cheung Chau.
