Cheung Chau Island Walking Tour

08:30 - 15:00

You will start your exploration at Pak Tai Temple which is dedicated to the Taoist god Pak Tai, who is known as the ‘Supreme Emperor of the Dark Heaven.’ Built in 1783, the temple’s layout includes traditional Chinese elements such as ceramic figurines on the roof ridges, murals containing auspicious motifs and stone lions in the forecourt.

Your adventure will also see you marvel at Cheung Chau Rock Carvings at Tung Wan Beach. These 3,000-year-old Bronze Age engravings are located near the water’s edge and feature intriguing geometric graphics and abstract animal images. They were stumbled upon by a geologist in 1970. Tung Wan beach is the most popular of the beaches with many snack bars and shops, and is one of the best areas for swimming, windsurfing and canoeing.

As you walk around the island, the guide will relate the history and stories behind the places you visit. As a typical fishing village, Cheung Chau is also known for its delicious seafood and there will be plenty of opportunities to stop and try out some local snacks.
