Tai O Fishing Village (大澳) Hong Kong


Tai O (大澳) Hong Kong

Tai O is the oldest fishing village located on the western side of Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It was part of our schedule on day 2 to visit here before exploring Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery in Ngong Ping. Approximately 20-25 minutes bus ride back and forth between Ngong Ping and Tai O. We chose 1.30pm as our departure time.

Along the streets, we were tempted by all sort of local specialty.
The red bean 碗仔糕 we tried turned out to be quite bland.
