Took the bus from Ngong Ping village. Where the bus drops you off is all being redeveloped, but a 5 minute walk and you are in the town. As you walk into the village you will come across a lot of boat crews offering trips...More
We visited as part of a tour and was only sad that I did not have more time here and visited local shops.
Very quiet at he time of visiting which also increased its charm.
Boat ride round the stilt houses was a highlight of...More
You step back a few decades to a place where time stood still. Was a very hot and humid day and the aromas from the dried fish were quite powerful. This is a very run down settlement with the poverty a dramatic contrast to the...More
This was one of the more impressive highlights of my Lantau island tour. I believe it is the oldest (and only) fishing village of its kind in Hong Kong - very traditional. I think it is worth seeing. There are regular boat trips which takes...More
We took Bus #11 from Ngog Ping (Big Buddha) to Tai O village, and had a great time by walking between the authentic fishermen stilt houses. We also took a 20-min boat excursion, which was very exciting. It was worth visiting the village.
This little fishing village is culturally unique and very different from anything you will have seen before.
As part of our tour we got to walk around the narrow streets and visit local shops as well as a short boat tour along the water past...More
Visited this because it was recommended by friends. Being vegetarians, we couldn't buy or eat anything in the village. I guess, urbanites of Hong Kong love the feel of a rural town as a respite from their daily grind.
Return bus tickets to Tai O and a brief boat trip were included in our Ngong Ping 360 tickets.
On the day we were there the bus only went to (and from) Tai O once every hour and even though there were plenty of empty...More

Normally, it will take 1.5 hr at least to visit the place from city, including taking MTR and bus. I believe if you arrive as early as 10am, you should be able to see most shops open. Apart from the shops, the other interesting spots are always open, like the cultural water village setting, the canals, the natural scenaries, etc. Therefore, if you really arrive early you can visit the cultural attractions first, then natural scenaries along the water front, then shops, then drinks or meals, in that order.
2.5 hr certainly will not be enough to have lunch, walk around and boat trip altogether. I would suggest to reserve a good 4 hrs at least. Firstly, the attractions are quite scattered, secondly, attractions may take time for... More
2.5 hr certainly will not be enough to have lunch, walk around and boat trip altogether. I would suggest to reserve a good 4 hrs at least. Firstly, the attractions are quite scattered, secondly, attractions may take time for photo shooting, and thirdly, boat trips can be arranged only when the boat is filled with passengers, they may wait and wait and wait, and you need to be patient on the boat. The paths are strollers friendly except with some bumpy wooden bridges across canals within the water village. Just a friendly reminder, typically there is a long queue for bus starting 4pm, queuing time is hard to estimate. If you find a taxi, it can be quite costly back to the city, around HK$200.
