It has been inhabited for longer than most other places in the territory of Hong Kong, with a population of about 30,000 up to 2006. Administratively, it is part of the Islands District.

    St. John Hospital

    Geographically the island is formed from two mostly granite lumps joined by what was presumably once a tombolo, a kind of sandbar. With an area of 2.45 km², the island is therefore "long", hence the name as translated from Cantonese is Long Island. Thus, it is redundant to say "Cheung Chau Island". The island is dumbbell-shaped, with hills at the northern and southern ends and the settlements concentrated in between.

    [edit] Economy

    The central part of the island is well developed with shops and houses. The laneways there are so narrow that virtually the only motor vehicles on the island are specially designed mini-fire engines. Residential areas also exist on the hills of the north and south.

    Traditionally the island was a fishing village and there is still a fishing fleet working from the harbour. However in recent years the island has become a major tourist attraction, offering a mixture of sandy swimming beaches, seafood cafes, and traditional Chinese culture.

    Rock Carving on Cheung Chau. This 3000-year-old rock carving, reported by the geologists in 1970, is located on the east of the island, immediately below the Warwick Hotel. It consists of two groups of similar carved lines surrounding small depressions.

    [edit] Temples

    Pak Tai Temple - one of the oldest temples in Hong Kong. The temple was built in 1783 and completely repainted in 1989. In front of the temple, there are 4 pairs of guarding lions. Before the altar are statues of two generals, Thousand Miles Eye and Favourable Wind Ear, who together are traditionally said to be able to hear and see anything

    Four temples dedicated to Tin Hau, including the Pak She Tin Hau Temple

    Kwan Kung Chung Yi Ting, a traditional temple built in 1973, dedicated to the god of justice Kwan Tai

    [edit] Others

    Alleged hiding place of Cheung Po Tsai (張保仔), a famous 19th century pirate

    Rock carvings located near Tung Wan Beach are declared monuments of Hong Kong

    Tung Wan and Kwun Yam Wan beaches

    [edit] Miscellaneous

    The yearly Cheung Chau Bun Festival - is a festival which includes a parade of floats, most famously including young children dressed as famous characters doing impossible balancing acts. It last seven days and attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the island.

    Cheung Chau was the birthplace of Lee Lai Shan (born 1970), a windsurfer who won the first Olympic gold for Hong Kong in 1996.

    After 2000, a number of cases of suicide (most of them by "burning charcoal") have taken place on the island. For some time holiday resorts were not rented to individuals. Stories concerning apparition have resulted from the news of suicides. In 2005 a local councillor Lam Kit-sing proposed a theme-park to be built in order to capitalise on the macabre reputation. Plans were subsequently rejected.

    [edit] Transportation

    First Ferry operates ferries between Central pier and Cheung Chau. They run approximately every 30 minutes depending upon time of day. Schedules on Sundays and public holidays differ from weekdays. The trip of about 16 miles takes 55 minutes or 35 minutes for ordinary ferries and high speed ferries respectively.
