Peng Chau

Peng Chau is a quieter outlying island that was once a major industrial centre until the 1980's. Today, it is a laid-back place where shops don't seem to want to open even when weekend visitors roll in.

There is regular ferry service to Central but smaller commuter boats also head to Discovery Bay from here.

July on the lunar calendar is the "ghost" festival.

You won't find highrise buildings in this pocket of Hong Kong.

The island must be very safe. Residents hang their laundry and keep their possessions outside for all to see.

Lung Mo Temple has a history of about 40 years and is the largest temple on the island.

Finger Hill is a moderately-difficult climb offering views of the island and also Hong Kong Island in the distance.

Unfortunately, today was a bit hazy.
