Park 'n Shop
Visitors wanting to shop at a grocery store, can do so at the main road near the ferry dock. One of the big ones is called Park 'n Shop Supermarket which has everything one would need while holidaying here in Cheung Chau. As the island does not have cars or trucks to transport goods from the boats into shops or villages, this is done by local men with a hand dolly. It is quite an interesting scene to observe, like stepping back in time.
