Suggestion:

Take the ferry to Yung Shue Wan pier walk the hiking trail to Sok Kwa Wan have a dinner there and take a ferry back to central. It can be done vice versa too, but Sok Kwa Wan is more of a fishing village and as compared with Yung Shue Wan which is more vibrant and has more places of interests starting your course from Yung Shue Wan will be better.

How to get there?

Heading Back to Central

For more information, to visit HKKF.

Suggestion:

I will recommend taking the ordinary ferry, as the ferry is not enclosed, unlike the fast ferry. Where passengers can enjoy the sea breeze and the beautiful scenery on your journey to Peng Chau. The fare for the fast ferry can be expensive and I felt that if you are not in a rush of time taking the ordinary ferry will be a better choice.
