Tai Po Review

The name means "shopping place," which it more than lives up to. In the heart of the region's breadbasket, the town has become a utilitarian "new town," but its main open-air market is a feast for the eyes, with baskets of lush green vegetables, freshly cut meat hanging from great racks overhead, fish swimming in tanks awaiting selection, and all types of baked and steamed treats. To reach the village, take the MTR East Rail line to the Tai Po Market stop.
