What you can expect
This Private Tour was designed to explore one of the outlying islands which is particularly notable due to its unique history, culture and tradition as well as the fresh seafood (of which you will be given the opportunity to enjoy for lunch).
There are 263 islands just off Hong Kong , many of which have long and colourful histories and are just as interesting today. Many of these rustic islands are less than an hour’s travel from downtown, but have locals living completely different lives than their countrymen in the big city. Together with the much slower pace on these islands are old villages, serene temples, mountain paths and rugged coastlines.
This specially designed Private tour starts with a transfer by public transport to the Central Pier where we take a ferry to Cheung Chau. Upon arrival, visit the island’s historical Pak Tai Temple, which is dedicated to the Taoist God Pak Tai and was built in 1783 incorporating traditional Chinese elements. Incense coils hang overhead in the main hall, ceramic figurines adorn the roof ridges, murals contain auspicious motifs and more.
Trek to Tung Wan Beach, a hot spot for swimmers, windsurfers and canoers, which also protects 3,000-year-old Bronze Age rock carvings. You will be taken to the 17th century Tin Hau Temple, which attracts local fisherman who come to worship the famous Goddess of the Sea.
A visit to the famous Cheung Po Tsai Cave, the hideout of a famous local pirate, is also included.
A seafood lunch will be provided (please advise if there are any dietary requirement at the time of booking).
Visit the picturesque harbour front, always filled with activity, including a variety of fishing vessels, trawlers, junks and sampans crisscrossing back and forth and a waterfront promenade lined with cafes, souvenir stores, herbal shops and vegetable stands.
