Ap Lei Chau, a small island connected by a bridge to the south of Hong Kong, is a perfect fusion of urban development and links to the city’s fishing past. With the opening of the MTR Island South Line (East) making Ap Lei Chau more accessible to the rest of Hong Kong, the face of Ap Lei Chau is rapidly changing.
The name Ap Lei Chau is derived from its long and narrow shape that looks like the tongue of a duck. Now a largely residential island, it still retains some of Hong Kong’s traditional allure with the busy harbour that is the base for fishing vessels and sampans, while old temples and shipyards still dot the island’s shoreline.
1. The Vibe:
Ap Lei Chau has a mix of Modern and Village Rustic Feel and has plenty of attractions for those who choose to call the area home. The Ap Lei Chau Waterfront Promenade is the hub so whether you enjoy a walk on the trail, let the kids unwind at the multiple playgrounds, do some shopping in the various malls or watch the sampans and fishing boats come and go, there is something for everyone.
Ap Lei Chau is full of reasonably priced local eats. Apart from traditional “Cha Chaan Tangs”, you have a multitude of international cuisines and seafood restaurants to choose from.
3. The Housing Factor:
This area consists of mainly high-rise developments. There are a few new luxury developments with club facilities being built in the area such as Larvotto and Marinella, as well as the more established sprawling South Horizon development and Sham Wan Towers. Many of these units have good sea views to the southeast, or west towards the Lamma Channel
4. The Convenience Factor:
The MTR South Island Line opened in 2016 and connects Ap Lei Chau with Central in 11 minutes thus completely transforming the convenience factor of this area.
The station of Lei Tung connects passengers from Ap Lei Chau Main Street to the Main Plaza with easy access to all areas including the Promenade.
