Lovely little fishing village with many shops and seafood. Take a boat ride for lovely scenery or take a walk up the mountain to see the White Chinese Dolhins swim.

Tai Wo is a beautiful addition to Ngong Ping. If you have time you MUST visit this place. Take bus no 21 from Ngong Ping village to reach this place. Alternatively you can taxi which charges around HKD 75. In Tai wo you can take a boat ride @ HKD 25 per person which will take you inside the village... More

We initially went to lantau by ngong ping 360 to see the monastery and Big Buddha. Only in the spot we learned you can take about 20min bus ride by a winding road down to Tai O village and it was well worth it. You can see the floating village, take a short boat trip and try some of the... More

The place is relatively quiet and laid-back, very good to escape the bustling city life. Went on the boat tour and was told there would definitely be dolphins (especially in the morning), but (as i somehow expected) there weren't any, so that was quite disappointing as the boat ride was merely into the waters with not much sights along the...

Tai O is a MUST-VISIT when you are at Lantau Island. You can reach here by taking bus 21 from the Ngong Ping Village bus stop. The frequency is quite a lot. Here in Tai O it is more laid back and villagey-like. You can also take long walks around the area and enjoy the amazing views of Hong Kong.... More

This place is amazing with over 600 stilt houses on the water. Pathways wind through the village so you can explore their way of life at close range.

We bought the Ngong Ping 360 pass that includes this boat ride; the boat is very powerful and can accommodate about 15 passengers; We were supposed to see the Chinese Pink Dolphins but unfortunately, those awesome creatures was shy during that day.

The fishing village is a peaceful place and the people are very friendly. I enjoyed visiting the market and we had a lovely drink and snack whilst we sat at the edge of the river. Great memories.

The fishing village built on stilts - a dying way of life? It was not to be missed but if you don't like fish the smell can be powerful...

A generally sleepy village with tight, small, square buildings and narrow alleys. Good bit is that there aren't many cars. Good for walking around to experience what is considered a time capsule.

Unless you are into dried seafood, there isn't much to see or do around here. And you can probably get dried seafood at a better rate in Sheung Wan.
