Follow your temple visit by enjoying some beach time at Tung Wha Beach, a shore location that is also home to a number of bronze-age carvings.
Continue your island excursion with a ride aboard a traditional wooden “sampan,” which will take you to the one-time hangout of notorious pirate Cheung Po Tsai.

After your temple visit, you’ll return to central Hong Kong by ferry. Your excursion will end at the ferry pier, where you’ll make your own way back to your hotel.

I really enjoyed this tour. I was looking for something different, and this trip definitely fit the bill. Cheung Chau was really interesting. Beautiful views, and lots of wonderful photo opportunities. My guide, Elton, was fantastic! He was able to share so much history, etc., about the entire country. Really a nice guy, and flexible about the day.
Another reviewer criticized the lunch. While it wasn't the best food I'd had in Hong Kong, this wasn't a foodie tour, and it was much more about the experience. But I highly recommend purchasing a mango mochi from the vendor right outside the restaurant. . .it was the best I've ever had!! I'm going to have to find a place that makes this back in the US!
I enjoyed walking through the markets and shopping areas, and watching the fishermen drying their fish. Really interesting. If you're looking for something different from the super busy, crowded parts of HK, you should definitely look into this tour.

The tour guide did his best but the lunch venue was a dreadful experience, very noisy, with staff screaming at each other. The food ordered was not correct. There are other venues on the island that could be enjoyable - we checked out one that seemed much better.
