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.

It's worth to spend a whole day in this tiny lovey fish village! If you are interested in hiking from tung Chung to tai o which takes about 4-5 hours, you can see much more in the trails.

Really interesting village but my advice is to visit this place in a guided tour like the 360 Lantau Culture and Heritage Insight Tour, because there are not that much thing to do here.

Tai O is well known as one of the few remaining traditional fishing villages in Hong Kong. The market lane was interesting, with lots of dried fish and other "bounty of the sea", interspersed with kitz-y trinkets. There were lots of little "local" eateries and...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... More
