Following the trip to Big Buddha, we went down to Tai O. It is located in the western side of Lantau Island in Hong Kong.
As with the place, it is called the “Venice of Hong Kong” because of the docks, rivers and waterways situated in the area. It is a good tourist spot as it is a fishing village. Due to the unique locale and buildings, it brings the unique of the village with local specialties like seafood.
Modes of transportation getting to Tai O are bus and boats (via Ngong Ping 360). Driving on your own is also an option. Going by bus was at times risky because of the turns and narrow roads coming from the mountains and hills.
It was a fun experience being at Tai O and to see colourful buildings and local businesses. You check the photos below.
I stopped at a restaurant and had fried rice and fried noodles with beef. I don’t have it under the photos below as I’m deciding whether to have a blog post focusing on the foods I had in Hong Kong.
