Scope out the fierce lions that flank a sacred Buddhist temple and cruise through tranquil waters by traditional wooden boat on this excursion to Cheung Chau Island. Explore a cave thought to have been a hideout for a notorious pirate and tuck into a delicious dim sum lunch served along the way.
Meet up with your guide outside your hotel and take the short ride to Hong Kong's bustling waterfront. Climb aboard a spacious ferry and grab a seat to watch the boat-speckled seascape drift by during your ride to Cheung Chau Island. When you arrive, transfer to a waiting vehicle and cruise to Pak Tai Temple, where you can learn about the 18th-century structure that once stood in its place and find out why it was demolished and rebuilt in 1989.
Continue on to take a sandy stroll along Tung Wha beach, hop on a wooden sampan boat for a ride by a sturdy typhoon shelter, and do a bit of spelunking in a cave once used by the infamous pirate, Cheung Po Tsai. Recharge with a tasty lunch of dim sum specialties, including steaming hot dumplings, and then wind your day to a close at Tin Hau, a centuries-old temple centered around the Goddess of the Sea. Snap a few photos of the temple's ornate architecture, and then grab a ride back to Hong Kong and your hotel.
