Peng chau Island (Ping chau, Pingzhou)
Located just 30 minutes from Hong Kong Central
This small island is a step back in time with its old time, sleepy fishing port/village. With no vehicles on the island, walking or cycling are the only means of transportation. Walking trails bisect the island and wind their way along the rocky coastline. A series of narrow streets make their way from the coast up into the hillier interior where squatter communities survive on primitive farming and fishing methods. Dotting the island are several small Buddhist temples, some dating back to the 1700's.
