Cheung Chau trip

20 Nov

A few weeks ago I had traveled the the the island of Cheung Chau, a few  miles south of Hong Kong. It took a 45 minute ferry ride to get there and the ride itself was pretty calm and provided a nice view of the other islands south of Hong Kong. I’d been convinced by my friends we were going for a simple day at the beach, so I’d worn flip-flops and trunks. I’d been sadly mistaken. What we ended up doing was more akin to hiking, if anything, and would have been fine if I wouldn’t have worn flip-flops. Despite that mistake, it was a nice, quaint island with good food, beautiful scenery, and plenty of little shops and restaurants to visit.

Kinda a tight fit…

The island was very hill, but had beautiful coast line and some old cannons left behind by pirates. There was even a small hideout cave you could crawl through to get from one side to the other (although it was nearly too small for me and very dark).

The beautiful place where I had cut my feet.

There was swimming involved, but only for about 5 minutes and I cut my feet pretty badly on some underwater rocks. Overall, I was glad to get back to my bed that night.  Beautiful sights, but a rough day.
