With the shape of a dumbbell, the Cheung Chau island has an area of 2400sq.m with relatively large population. As a fishing port and the anchoring spot for ships, the island had its golden time even before the thriving of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula. Though the trading center was transferred to Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, its appearance as a fishing port is maintain, showing the lively atmosphere of a small fishing village. Near the port, many fishing ships are anchoring. Compared with those islands with small population and slump economy except Hong Kong Island, the island is a best summer resort for visitors.

The busy streets facing the port being the center, old shops, open market and stands are crowed and busy.
