Cheung Chau

Famous for its annual Bun Festival, which coincides with Visak (Buddha’s Birthday), Cheung Chau has more history than would otherwise seem possible for a relatively small coastal island settlement. Missionaries used Cheung Chau as a leave centre from the early twentieth century, and links still persist in the number of religious organizations with retreats on the island. Pleasant coastal paths, coastal and island views and an absence of cars make Cheung Chau a delight for walkers.

The fishing industry was the island’s principal economic mainstay for centuries, though this has now greatly declined due to pollution and overfishing in local waters.
