Tai O, Hong Kong

#4 of 38 in Neighborhoods in Hong Kong
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
Get to know the fishing community at Tai O, where locals have built interconnected houses on stilts above Lantau Island's tidal flats. Foodies will drool over the seafood, and photographers will spend all day clicking away at this unique village. When you go, look for the Rope-drawn Bridge, a drawbridge built in 1996 to connect the village and the island, as well as shops selling famous dried seaweed, salted fish, shrimp paste, and seafood sauce. A truly authentic village atmosphere. Plan your visit to Tai O and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Hong Kong itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
