The tour of Peng Chau wouldn’t be complete without a tour of the small streets of the island, the markets and some of the local people and fishing life. Following up on the first post “Peng Chau : HK’s intimate island”, here the second part on Peng Chau.

 

As you get off the ferry… “Welcome to Peng Chau”.

Not too far away at the end of the short road to your right is one of the old local temples…

Continuing from the temple to the right is a narrow street which includes the local market and street restaurants…

Transport on the island is non-motorized and everyone uses different variations of bicycles…

There are local shrines all over the island worshiping different Gods, mostly related to fishing and sea related life…

I personally found the little residential streets quite charming, a bit of old style and somewhat basic.

Every once in a while you might come across something that’s a bit different, like this next “statue”…

Island life, as you might expect, is mainly about the sea, boating and fishing. The views are gorgeous and all is quite relaxed…
