Tai O, Hong Kong
(3.9/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 大澳置偏僻,我們這次由東涌坐巴士前往,大約一小時車程。建設大家早上出發,因為我約中午到達要等車等1小時。(因為很多人吃完飯去走走) 地方非常有特色,可以看以前水上人家的水上棚屋。也很有很多地道小食和特產,我們只吃了豆腐花,也買了蝦醬。 老實說,拍照是很好看,不過實際上遊人太多,地方也有點髒,到此一遊已然足夠。
