Peng Chau

Peng Chau (坪洲 in pinyin: ping2 zhou1; in Jyutping: ping4 zau1; literal meaning: "Flat Inslet") is a small island located off the north-eastern coast of Lantau Island. Administratively, it is part of the Islands District of Hong Kong.

Peng Chau is accessible by a ferry from Central on Hong Kong Island, or by ferries from Mui Wo, or by Kai-to ferries from Discovery Bay on Lantau Island. It is notable for its sizable Filipina population of immigrant workers, and as at April 2003 is undergoing land degradation restorative work.
