Reviews

Tai O is far more than the water canal and dried seafood that we know! What’s more vital here are the villagers’ hospitality and the determination of volunteers to reconnect the community.

What do you first think of when we talk about Tai O? “Venice in the East", dried fishes? The real charm of this tiny fishing village is actually the close relationship in the neighbourhood!
