Celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr in Hong Kong

Eid-ul-Fitr (“Eid”) is one of the most important holidays to the 1.8 billion Muslims found worldwide, from Algeria to Kazakhstan to Malaysia. Perhaps due to its lack of a public holiday status, Eid is not a commonly-known holiday in Hong Kong. Nevertheless, up to 300,000 local Muslims celebrate this day along with their counterparts around the world.

We decided to go explore this scruffy car-free, skyscraper-free fishing village, home to more than 23,000 inhabitants and dates back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Step afoot and we notice a sharp change of pace in this quaint little town!! Pic 1: Harbour front Cheung Chau Cheug Chau is also nicknamed as the “Dumbbell Island” given the peculiar shape – large at the ends and narrow in the middle. For many, it's attraction has as much to do with its no-nonsense village lifestyle as with the sea and sand which is part of what ma
