Tai O: fishing village

Located in Lantau Island, Tai O is a fishing village in the western coast of Lantau island. With its unique design and traditional stilt houses, is one of the last authentic places in Hong Kong that still remaining.

HOW TO GET THERE

The way I used so far is a metro and bus combination.

You should take the metro to Tung Chung Station (Tung Chung Line). Once you reach to Tung Chung Station, take the exit B towards the bus station and grab the Bus 11. You will see some indications along the way to the bus station (Tai O direction). The journey will take around 50 minutes

EXPLORING AROUND

Reached to Tai O village and crossed the welcoming bridge, you will find many local street markets selling dried seafood, salted fish and all kind of food related to seafood.

After finishing your walk through this crowd street market, you cross the Ferry Bridge and get pretty good views of the village, its stilt houses and harbor

Walking through its street you may find all kind of shops, restaurants and street food. The walk is pretty pleasant

Now some photos I could take along the coast way

Getting another direction along this way, you will be able to find a small temple and a hike to a hill. Highly recommended to get the best views of Tai O and sea views.

On the other side of Tai O is awaiting that I consider personally the best part of this village, an endless maze of walkways through the port. The authentic and classic Hong Kong

And of course, cannot miss a cafe shop right here with its views

Ending the journey towards the right side of Tai O, you will also find great views

Hope you have fun in Tai O and this brief introduction have been helpful to you!
