Photos of Peng Chau and Discovery Bay, Hong Kong

Lived in Discovery Bay 87-88 but only visited once since 94. And hadn't been to Peng Chau in 20 years. Took my wife there last Tuesday for a leisure stroll in the afternoon. If you have really too much time in Hong Kong and want some quietness on a weekday, these two are not bad choices. Pretty off the beaten path, but we did see one or two foreign visitors with cameras on Peng Chau.

Really only the most basic local diners on Peng Chau. It's nothing like Cheung Chau or Tai O. DB Plaza has lots of bars and restaurants.

Transportation:

Ferry from Central (Pier 6, next to Star Ferry) to Peng Chau:

Our fast catamaran took 25 minutes. $28.5

Peng Chau (Kai To pier, just south of main pier) to Discovery Bay (Nim Shue Wan):
http://www.td.gov.hk/en/transport_in_hong_kong/public_transport/ferries/service_details/#k11
Took about 15 minutes, via Trappist Monastery. $5.5

Nim Shue Wan to DB Plaza: 8 minute walk

DB Plaza to DB North: Free shuttle at :00 and :30. Takes 5 minutes.

DB North to Sunny Bay MTR: Bus DB03P Every :05 and :35. $10 (beeping Octopus at designated machines at DB North Plaza saves $4). Takes about 15 minutes.

Not much to see at DB North. So, one can take Bus DB03R directly from DB Plaza to Sunny Bay MTR. And Discovery Bay has direct fast ferry service to/from Central. $40, takes 25 minutes.

DB schedules and fares: http://www.dbcommunity.hk/icms2/template?series=328#

And there is a trail to walk from Trappist Monastery to Discovery Bay (Nim Shue Wan), or the other direction to Mui Wo.

Feel free to ask any question.
