Peng Chau

Peng Chau (坪洲 in pinyin: ping2 zhou1; in Jyutping[?]: ping4 zau1; literal meaning: "Flat Inslet") is a small island south of Hong Kong Island.

Peng Chau is accessible by a ferry from either Central on Hong Kong Island, or 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.
