Fodor's Review

Tucked away on the western end of Lantau, this fishing village inhabited largely by the tanka (boat people), some of whom still live in stilt houses, is a great place to spend a few hours. There's a temple dedicated to Kwan Tai, god of war, that was established in the 15th 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 1902 Tai O Police Station, on the village's

southwest tip, has been restored and converted into the Tai O Heritage Hotel, a great place for tea or a meal.
