Cheung Chau Island, Hong Kong
(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Nicknamed the "Dumbbell Island" because of its shape, Cheung Chau Island features six temples, long sandy beaches, sea food restaurants, a 3000-year-old rock carving, and a cave, which was allegedly the hiding place of a famous 19th-century pirate. Cycle or hike to the natural rock sculptures on the east side of the island, molded by weather into shapes resembling a flower vase and a human head. The Mini Great Wall, which is actually a long path, offers many vantage points over the sea. Cheung Chau Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Hong Kong Edition.
