This is the 3rd part (and final one) of my trip to Tai O pictures.

The house converted into a restaurant. You could see that they maintain the interior.

Look at the size of this house. It is really narrow and small.

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.

Hong Kong – Bus trip to Tai O (1)

While we were still in Hong Kong, we wanted to get out of the city and to see what they have out in the country side. So we decided to go to Tai O.

Tai O is a fishing town, partly located on an island of the same name, on the western side of Lantau Island in Hong Kong. We took the MTR to the last stop and continued by bus to the fishing village.

View from the MTR….
