Tai O Village, 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 recent years.

History Of Tai O Village

The human settlement of the Tai Village is just 3 centuries old. During the battle of Tamao, Tai O village was occupied by the Portugues for a short span of time. Tai O Village was also famous for salt production and it was recorded that the 70 acres of land covering salty marshes amounted to 25000 piculs in the year 1938. It is also said that Tai O has many secret inlets of water which used to serve as a base for various smuggling and illegal activities.

Things to Do in Tai O Fishing Village  

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 of 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.

Tai O Market: Tai O Market is a very famous fish market in Tai O Village. If you are a seafood lover, then this is your place to go. Various restaurants are lined up in this market selling fresh fish. Traditional salted fish is a must try here. Besides fish, many vendors sell other things as well like the shrimp paste, original handmade pearl jewelry, etc.

Pink Dolphin Boat Ride: The pink dolphin boat ride is something which one must definitely try on their visit to Tai O Village. The boat ride takes you close to the stilt houses and you can admire the magnificent sun views from these boats. If you are lucky, you may spot the pink dolphin.

Tai O Museum: This museum no longer exists. After the floods hit the area, the owners of the museum decided to shut down the museum and worked for the redevelopment of the building. The Tai O Museum showcased the fishing equipment and old artifacts.

Sea Kayak: Kayaking is another great way of exploring the village. You can take a kayak ride with a tour operator who will guide you throughout the tour. This is also a great way to explore the pink dolphins.

Best Time to Visit Tai O Fishing Village

The best time to visit Tai O Fishing Village is from March to April and then again from October to November. One should plan a visit to Tai O Fishing Village during the weekdays in order to avoid the crowd as on weekends, the village gets crowded with the locals.

      Gauri's 8 days trip to Hong Kong

      Thank you so much for the arrangements made by travel triangle. We had an amazing trip. Everything went according to the itinerary. We did not have to face any difficulty and very much satisfied with the services provided by travel triangle. There was a difficulty before departure, the ferry book
      ings were made incorrectly by our spoc. This is very sad to write but, he did not correct it nor he had a courtesy to call the us and ask whether it is rectified or not. And most importantly, i would like to thank Bijay Kushwaha for the quick support by him. I had contacted him at 11PM regarding the ferry tickets issue. And the very next day he corrected my ferry tickets and sent me the updated tickets. And even he told that we can contact him anytime if any issue is there throughout my journey. This is the support customers need, when making the bookings from travel agency. We had even contacted customer care and whats app group regarding the same issue. But we were told that they can fix this in official hours. When we did not know whether our issue will get resolved or not, as we were supposed to fly within 10-11 hours. We really appreciate Bijay for helping us.

      Overall experience is not great. Even though we have started discussing about my trave needs 5 months before my travel dates, we ended-up in travelagenet dropping key locations from my iteranary. Travelagent drama started after full-payment of travel amount. Getting refund was nightmare .. (took
      more than 4 weeks) that to for the trips which they were not able to book (refer details below). When we requsted for Non-Veg dinner booking.. they endedup booking dinner with Beef and Pork .
