for this trip, we planned to walk around cheung chau.
we had planned to take the 2.15pm ferry, must have mistaken the ferry schedule thinking that 2.15pm is the fast ferry.
we then walk towards IFC & reached central ferry no. 5 to cheung chau island by 2.05pm.
the fast ferry is a 2.45pm & takes 35mins, so we decided to take the 2.15pm slow ferry arriving cheung chau in 55mins.
we passed by 振记粥面店, cheung chau market stall.
we walked around the wet market looking at the live fish & seafood. most of the stalls were already closed at 3pm.
we walked round the street stalls a bit more, then walked left of the jetty.
a friend commented that fishing, in addition to tourism, must still be the main livelihood of the residents here.
we walked across to the tung wan (东湾) beach, passing by a square & before it an area with love locks. looks like korean fever catching up here…..
this time we just wandered, so did not walk to thepak tai temple 北帝庙 further left of the island before crossing to tung wan (东湾) beach, the usual route i took previously.
tung wan (东湾) beach looks over to kowloon & new territories on the left side & lamma island & aberdeen on the right.
just rounded back to the streets on the jetty side.
& it’s also moored full of small boats on the right side of the jetty.
they were sunning the shrimps. we guessed making hae bee – the dry shrimps.
slow ferry at 5.15pm. we could just walk round the stalls so decided to return by 5.40pm fast ferry catamaran 35mins journey to central ferry pier.
it was a pleasant afternoon, weather was good, we had great congee & braises, and very nice dessert & had a nice relaxing stroll around the place, not much walking & climbing.
