Hong Kong Sights

Tai O

Fodor's Review

This fishing village inhabited largely by the tanka (boat people), some of whom still live in stilt houses, is tucked away on the west end of Lantau and a great place to spend a few hours. There is a temple dedicated to Kwan Tai, god of war, that was established in the 15th century and built in the 18th-century. Remains of salt pans line part of the shoreline, and a look seaward sometimes rewards you with a sighting of a rare Hong Kong pink dolphin. The old Tai

O Police Station, built in 1902, sits on the southwest tip of the village; it has been restored and converted into the Tai O Heritage Hotel, a great place for tea or a meal.
