On Cheung Chau, seafront strolls, the Mini Great Wall, and cherry-blossoms at Kwan Kung Pavilion offer a change of pace throughout the year. However, the local Bun Festival is truly its main attraction. When Buddha’s birthday rolls around, tall towers are erected and covered with homemade buns. Witness festival-goers scale up to several stories high on a harness in a competition snatch as many buns as they can! The Cheung Chau Bun Festival began as an occasion for locals to pray for protection against pirates and plague brought by evil spirits. That is why Pak Tai Temple, dedicated to the Taoist God of the Sea, is the eye of the storm during festivities.
