Lovely little fishing village with many shops and seafood. Take a boat ride for lovely scenery or take a walk up the mountain to see the White Chinese Dolhins swim.

Many stilt houses were burnt over 10 years ago. Not many have been left but still have some. If you want to understand the other living of fishermen, you may get the imagination here. Wandering around, you can buy some dry seafood stuff with attractive...More

The best and easiest mountain trail should be from tung Chung to tai o. It take around 2 hours to get there. Have a coffee, traditional HK food....! Very nice 👍🏻

This was a big contrast from central Hong Kong with the stilt houses. When you get off the boat you'll see tour boat operators waiting to grab you. Its only $30HKD (around £3) for a 20 ish minute boat tour. Its probably the best way...More

This was a very eye catching excursion. Life on the water with houses on stilts and lots of dried fish being sold in the market place.

Feels like you're going back in time! Tai O Fishing Village is a must see! Cute shops and places to eat. Realize the residents live in fairly poor conditions, so be respectful!

Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, and explore the fishing village. Friendly locals, including the guardian of the former detention cells located in the Tai O Heritage Hotel. Lots of fresh seafood. Any which way that seafood is cooked does not quite...More

Go To Central and the ferry to Mui Wo leaves about twice an hour. There are fast ferries taking 30 min and slow ferries taking an hour and costing less.Then take bus 1 to Tai O, another half hour maybe.
