Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (2)

This is my 2nd part of Tai O. If you missed on my first part, here is the blog; Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (1)

Tai O is a slow moving pace as compared to the city. It is very scenic and peaceful. A nice slow walk on the jetty. People renting bicycles to cycle there too. It will be really fun and cycle and enjoy the view on the bicycle. Of course you can walk like what I did. =)

More views of the stilts houses…..

At the end one of the street lead to the Tai O Heritage Hotel. It was previously a police station built on the small hill next to Tai O Ferry Pier, to reinforce the police forces on Lantau Island but ceased operation in 1996 and operated till 2002 as a functioned a patrol post due to the decline in crime rate. In 2009, it was restored as a 9 room boutique hotel.
