Tai O Fishing Village – A Tour of Traditions

Tour Info

Hong Kong's Last Fishing Village

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and take a tour with us into the “Venice of Hong Kong,” or Tai O, Hong Kong's last fishing village. Tai O served as the main entry point of refugees fleeing China by boat after the Civil War in 1949. It is filled with stilt houses from the 19th century, temples built in the Ming Dynasty, and a police station turned hotel. Enjoy a beautiful boat ride as your guide tells you about this sleepy village!

Highlights of the Tour

  • Stroll through a village of houses on stilts
  • Enjoy a boat ride
  • Try to spot one of Hong Kong's endangered pink dolphins
  • Visit one of the last shrimp paste factories and learn how it's made before taste testing!
