Owner description: 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.

Apart from the old style village, there are some easy hiking tracks in Tai O.
The scenery is wonderful during sunset.

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 out to sea. They are reasonably priced and well worth doing as you get to see the houses in the water on stilts and if your lucky some pink dolphins.The village is like stepping back in time. Pick a watering hole, grab a beer and watch the world pass by. From the bus station you can take a bus back to Tung Chung MTR station.

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 the day.

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 Hong Kong / Kowloon areas. Interesting to sample life of yesteryear and see the “houses” built on sticks in the mud.

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 you out at sea, where you have a good chance of seeing the white Chinese dolphins (I was lucky to see them and I can tell you that they are the most magnificent creatures I've ever seen).
