I feel like I’m running out of places to visit in Hong Kong, but do you blame me? I’ve been 3 times already for a relatively long period of time, and I tried to do as many things as possible each time. So this time, my good friend Andy and I, decided to take the ferry and visit a wonderful sea village Island called Cheng Chau; about 10 km away from Hong Kong Island.
Well, let me start with saying that it was certainly a wonderful decision, as you could almost savour how the local live outside of the main metropolis. The Island itself isn’t too big, so you could probably take a few hours to walk the whole of the island, which I think is great.
There are a few decent beaches if you wanted to relax during the day, but you can also visit the temples scattered in Cheng Chau.
The best one is Yuk Hui Temple, as it’s very colourful and has some great interiors (the history behind it is amazing, look it up!), so I definitely recommend anyone visiting the island, to stop by for a quick visit!
Food is also incredible, and you can see so many local restaurants offering fresh fish and proper authentic Chinese dishes. Cheap and delicious
In this editorial, I style a beautiful Khaki short sleeve polo shirt from Uniqlo Japan, and worn it with a pair of Next tailored checked trousers and Jack Wills penny loafers. You can see me posing in some cool alleys, and even by a tiger mosaic at Yuk Hui Temple. Awesome, right?
