The sea. The culture. A way of life that hasn’t changed in 50 years. Escape into this timeless Hong Kong on an Island Life tour with our local hosts.

The Ultimate Break: Explore Island Life on lovely Peng Chau

Craving an ocean breeze, some local Hong Kong food and culture, and a insider’s intro to Hong Kong’s most magical island?


There is no better time than now to explore Hong Kong. And no better place to start than the wonderful green spaces and cultural treasures of Hong Kong’s outlying islands. Our popular Island Life tour will get you to a part of Hong Kong you have been meaning to visit–and you’ll experience it through the eyes of an island dweller.


Learn the history and explore the secret places of a lost in time island with local resident Daisann McLane, New York Times and National Geographic journalist. Taste some delicious dim sum and enjoy the best views, visit secret beaches, and finish with a private oceanfront tea tasting.
