"Rustic Fishing Village in the Modern HK" Top 5 Page for this destination Tai O by DSwede

Tai O Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 55 photos

If you look at the map, Tai O is about as far east as you can go in Hong Kong before you leave the territorial waters. If you keep going a bit farther, you'll wind up in Macau...

This little hidden corner of Lantau Island is a still-functioning fishing village. The majority of which are residences built on stilts over the tidal water pools.
