Tai-O, Hong Kong

After seeing the Giant Buddha, my dad wanna go to Tai-O, a fishing village in Lantau Island as well. It was really convenient as the Bus Stop is just outside the Ngong Ping 360 area. Easy to spot the bus to Tai-O as well. Using our Octopus card, it was really easy.

It took around 15-20 minutes to reach Tai-O. We dont know how to walk but there was a map just near the bus stop, so we followed the map and walked.



We walked around the village. There are several seafood restaurant around. Some does not display the prices, so we decided to forgo these type of restaurants. We walked into one seafood restaurant that has price and set meal. The most important thing is that the restaurant was quite full house.

We took the value meal with 3 dishes.


The scallop dish. The size of the scallop was ok, not big and not too small. The taste was there, but I find the garlic was a bit too hard to chew as well as the vermicelli.


Squid paste. This was quite a big plate. It was fresh and the texture was good. Just the chilli not nice, weird taste.


Steam fish. Normal, fresh.


I managed to buy the 'mak ya tong' biscuit. Super duper sticky.


Tai-O is a place to go if you wanna have fresh seafood.
