We came to Tai O on bus number 21 from the Big Buddha. It is certainly worth making the trip.
We did a boat tour first of all (less than $20 Australian for 4 if us). There was no commentary, but we got to see...More
We spent an afternoon wandering round the alleys and lanes, visited a coffee shop and sat outside on their stilt deck. A very unique place and a real contrast to bustling Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, definitely a place to chill and not rush.
I took the MTR from Hong Kong station to Tung Chung, and then Bus #11 to Tai O. While the trip was rather long, almost two hours door to door, it was still worth it to walk around the village.
It is perfectly quaint and...More
If you haven't been to a fishing village on stilts before, do pop into Tai O to wander around. It's a very relaxed place and the people are friendly and don't hassle you. Lots of fish stuff around for you to smell or purchase.
Tai O was the first stop on our guided tour of Lantau Island (April 2017). The westernmost point of Hong Kong, this lovely old fishing village was wonderful. We wandered through the many vendor stalls, featuring a wide variety of dried fish and other souvenirs,...More
Tai O is located at the far west of Hong Kong, on the Lantau Island, hence providing excellent sunset views. The area is devoted to tourism and is a popular spot during the weekends and public holidays. There are restaurants and dried-seafood stalls. The area...More
We came here as an excursion from Ngong Ping/ Big Buddha after purchasing a packaged ticket from Ngong Ping which included return bus a and river tour. Tai O its self is not very big area we managed to cover a lot of it in...More

Normally, it will take 1.5 hr at least to visit the place from city, including taking MTR and bus. I believe if you arrive as early as 10am, you should be able to see most shops open. Apart from the shops, the other interesting spots are always open, like the cultural water village setting, the canals, the natural scenaries, etc. Therefore, if you really arrive early you can visit the cultural attractions first, then natural scenaries along the water front, then shops, then drinks or meals, in that order.
2.5 hr certainly will not be enough to have lunch, walk around and boat trip altogether. I would suggest to reserve a good 4 hrs at least. Firstly, the attractions are quite scattered, secondly, attractions may take time for... More
2.5 hr certainly will not be enough to have lunch, walk around and boat trip altogether. I would suggest to reserve a good 4 hrs at least. Firstly, the attractions are quite scattered, secondly, attractions may take time for photo shooting, and thirdly, boat trips can be arranged only when the boat is filled with passengers, they may wait and wait and wait, and you need to be patient on the boat. The paths are strollers friendly except with some bumpy wooden bridges across canals within the water village. Just a friendly reminder, typically there is a long queue for bus starting 4pm, queuing time is hard to estimate. If you find a taxi, it can be quite costly back to the city, around HK$200.
