Tai O Travel Guide
We just love Hong Kong, but sometimes the glitz and glamour of the city just gets a little overbearingeven for those of us who are New Yorkersso we're all about an excursion away from the bright lights.
When we were in HK recently, a friend invited us along on his plans to visit the Tai O fishing village on stilts on the west of Lantau island, and we had such an awesome time being the two non-Chinese tourists in the place.
The guidebooks will tell you that Tai O is the "Venice of Hong Kong." Well, we've been to both, and Venice it ain't. It is however a small town on stilts over the water, half dilapidated and all fascinating.
