A Ferry Ride from Central to Cheung Chau

Cheung Chau is a heavily touristed island getaway on weekends and holidays. Both fast and ordinary ferries depart from Central, but for a more scenic adventure, take the cheaper ordinary ferries because they have open areas with no windows where you can enjoy the sea breeze and skyline views.

Here is the journey from Central to Cheung Chau :

Various facilities in the West Kowloon Cultural District are taking shape.

You will see the city's longest bridges en route. First up is Stonecutters Bridge.

Next is Tsing Ma Bridge.

Disneyland looks quite small in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by countryside.

The government has proposed a very controversial and costly reclamation plan to fill this part of the sea for more housing.

The ferry will pull into the western side of the island, where there is a breakwater and many fishing vessels are parked inside.

Heading back to Central, this is the type of crowd to expect on a busy day, even though ferries run fairly often with multiple departures every hour in a combination of fast and ordinary ferries.
