About Tai O Fishing Village in Hong Kong

Tai O Fishing village is mostly populated with Tanka people. They are a nomadic southern Chinese ethnic group who have settled in the community over the past two centuries. The major attraction of the place is the stilted houses (pang uks), which were once common all across Hong Kong, but this  village is one of the last remaining community of any scale. History has it that the area could have been used by pirates long ago, who sought shelter here.  is a haven for people who dwell in culture and seek tranquility.

Fishing is the foremost way of livelihood in Tai O Fishing village for over two centuries. The village boasts of its authentic shrimp paste, whose smell lingers throughout the day in the air. Drying of salted fish of various kinds is a common sighting in the markets, streets, and homes of the village. One more traditional way of living is salt produced in the nearby marshes. Sadly, both these industries have shrunk dramatically in the recent years.

Things to do in  -

If you are looking for composure and a place to relax in the fresh air, Congratulations! You’ve landed in a perfect place. Just go on a walk and be awestruck by the beauty of the place. As you roam around the town, you can also cross a couple bridges that give you a glimpse of the famous old stilt houses in Tai O.  Wander around all the fish stalls, get your camera out and enjoy the island life!  Tai O Fishing village is considered as a photographer’s paradise. Take a look at the local shops selling souvenirs and traditional artifacts. Take a stroll around the fishing village market, which is a feast for the eyes, perhaps not the nose.You can take a boat ride around the village and out on the ocean to try and spot the rare Chinese Pink Dolphins. The sightings are rare, but the view is more than worth a try.

Tai O Fishing village is not a place where you would find a whole lot of options for dining out. The available options are very local but lip-smacking. One must try the famous Egg Waffles, cooked on coal instead of electricity. The area's once prolific salt marshes still yield the salt used to dry duck egg yolks and fish. Making a stop at the village bakery to grab one of their famous Tai O donuts is highly recommended. Dry fish and other sea products are found in abundance.
