Lovely little fishing village with many shops and seafood. Take a boat ride for lovely scenery or take a walk up the mountain to see the White Chinese Dolhins swim.

Tai O is a small village and there are so many food seafood there. You can take a boat to go outside the ocean and see if you see the Chinese White Dolphin. You could also do some hiking at this place.
