Nice, relaxing pace. Went for a long walk and run around the island, and finished with a nice meal at a local dimsum restaurant. Took a short 20 min boat ride which was nice as well, but don't expect to see any pink dolphins.
Many traditional areas in Hong Kong could lay claim to the regional heritage site, be it Wong Tai Sin Temple or Old Police Station. But everyone agrees that Tai O fishing village one of the prime examples.

Tai O is a teeny fishing town on Lantau Island in Hong Kong. The name means large inlet!
I went on a hike with my boss, one of our lovely clients and her ‘Hong Kong Happy Hiker’ friends. I believe we met at Tung Chung...More
Tai O is a fishing village - full of Hong Kong old tradition. Visit there takes 45 minutes from Lantau Island. In modern Hong Kong, Tai O is completely another speculator tourist site. Small streets full of salted fishes, petite food. Shrimp salted paste (Asian...More
From the Big Buddha, I took the local bus #21 to Tai O village. I would recommend hopping in any of the $30 pink dolphin boat rides to see the village. Your not going to see any dolphins, but are going boat tour through the...More
Visited Tai O in mid October and loved it !! Was almost like walking back in time, small tiny little streets, old buildings, a stilt villiage over the water, about as far removed from Central Hong Kong as you could get. A bit of a...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.
