It takes only about 1/2 hour to Cheung Chau by the fast ferry. Make sure to go try the congee place 黎恩記. Their congee is the BEST!! Also the dry seafood shops offer good local product BUT be careful fall into tourist trap!

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
