There are only government-owned vehicles allowed, such as police cars, fire trucks, and hospital ambulances. Even so, their size is small due to the narrow roads in Cheung Chau.

The original translation for the given 'Bahasa' text to 'English' while preserving any html tags is as follows: The native residents of Cheung Chau only use bicycles as their daily means of transportation. To reach all the places on this island, it can be done by walking. However, tourists can also rent bicycles to explore around. We chose to walk, and the first destination we headed to was one of the two oldest cinemas in Hong Kong. Yup, that cinema is now called Cheung Chau Cinema Multicultural Park.

Although it has been closed for 26 years or nearly two decades, this historic cinema on Cheung Chau Island will finally reopen with a new face on August 21 last year. Cheung Chau Cinema is one of the well-preserved pre-war cinemas in Hong Kong. Established in the 1930s along with Yau Ma Tei Theatre, both places are registered as Grade III Historical Buildings.
