Peng Chau is one of the less populated outlying islands which is why it is still very quiet and a nice place to take a walk. The name literally means a "flat small island", though it is actually hilly like most Hong Kong islands.

People tend to go there for a walk or to eat at one of the many seafood restaurants. While there you might just want to walk through the village and see old style Chinese-fishing style community.

Like most small Hong Kong communities there are plenty of temples -- and being a fishing island it is no surprise to find a temple of Tin Hau. This one is built in 1792 so that's very old by Hong Kong standards.

Like Cheng Chau, there are no motor cars apart from small construction and emergency vehicles.

You can get there by ferry from Central District, or alternatively if you have been visiting Lantau or Cheung Chau then you can take the inter-island ferry from there to Peng Chau.
