Tai O fishing village
Take a step back in time with a visit to Tai O fishing village.
Situated in the south west edge of Lantau Island, the journey to Tai O can take a bit of time so leave early to make the most of your day. You can take the MTR to Tung Chung and from there either bus number 11 or a ferry from the pier will take you all the way to Tai O.
Tai O's most famous attractions are the stilt houses and pink dolphins, and the cheap boat tours give you the opportunity to see both. However, with only around 30 pink dolphins left in Hong Kong you'll have to be luckier than we were to see them. Even without a dolphin sighting the $30HKD fee for the boat trip was well worth it with great views of the stilt houses and bay.
Taking a walk around the village offers as many interesting sights as the boat tour, you can stroll between stilt houses, browse market stalls and eat fresh sea food.
The people living in Tai O seem used to visitors and carry on with their day or smile warmly as tourists plod through the tight streets and peer into the houses. The contrast to the towering sky scrapers and bright, busy streets of the city center just an hour or so away is incredible to experience.
