Tai O Island, known as Venice of Hong Kong, is located in the western part of Lantau, New Territories. It is a place far from Hong Kong's urban life, but it really exists in Hong Kong. Because Tai'ao is less affected by urbanization on the outlying islands, it still retains the appearance of early Hong Kong fishing villages. The most distinctive feature is the elevated houses - shacks where the local people live. The wooden pillars were inserted into the water, and the house was built on the basis of the wooden pillars. I don't know what kind of wood is made of. After soaking in the water for so long, I can see something like shells attached to the pillars near the water surface. There is a small museum in Da'ao. It can see which tools fishermen used to catch fish. It is very historical, but there is no explanation in it. You can only taste and feel it by yourself. It is suggested that we try our best to walk inside. We can see that some corridors are made of wood. They should be made of the same material as shacks. Only one person can walk through the wooden corridors in front of the doors. There, we can feel the local fishermen's life. There is no need for tickets in Tai'ao Fishing Village. But it is far from Hong Kong Island. It took me two estimates to go to Tai'ao Fishing Village from Hong Kong Station. An hour. One place to buy tickets is to go to sea to see the Chinese white dolphins. The fare is HK$20. The fisherman will tell you where to look and the dolphins disappear in a twinkling of an eye, but many times in good weather, the dolphins jump from the sea to the sea again. [Transportation] 1. Take the MTR Tung Chung Line to the terminal Tung Chung, and then come out and take Bus No. 11 to Da'ao. When you come back, you can also go to Dongyi in Tung Chung and take the MTR Tung Chung Line to Tung Chung at the terminal, and then come out and take Bus No. 11 to Da'ao. When you come back, you can also go to Dongyicheng shopping in Tung Chung, where the discount is relatively large. (This is my route) 2. Take bus B3 to Tuen Mun Pier after crossing the Customs at Shenzhen Bay, and get to Da O Pier directly by boat. It only takes about an hour to get from Tuen Mun to Da O by boat. (This is a friend's route)[Diet] Da'ao's specialty is seafood. The local salted fish, shrimp sauce, shrimp paste and fish belly are very famous. The local people in Hong Kong will also bring some seafood back here. You can also eat a big seafood meal and enjoy the beautiful sunset in the shack. Street side, there are many delicious snacks: chicken dung rattan, rice cake, tofu flower, tea fruit, eggs, fish eggs (fist size), barbecue.. I ate a tofu flower shop, saw the goddess She Shiman and the owner's photo, as well as other familiar stars in the Hong Kong opera have photos.
Compared with Lamma Island, Tai'ao does have fewer tourists and is more a choice for local people to hike in Hong Kong... Convenient transportation, we live near Honghong, take the subway to Dongyicheng, and then there is a direct bus to Da'ao at the bus stop. The impression is that there is a 20-30 minute train, which is very convenient. The first impression of arriving at Da'ao is that it is really a small fishing village. I like it very much. Local Grandpa and Grandpa can't understand Mandarin, aha ha ha, our poor Cantonese is also to fill the scene! The famous eggs are delicious. Let's take a look at the scenery. We really didn't eat anything because the seafood restaurant didn't open. We went to Lianxianglou. It was delicious. Generally speaking, I like this place very much. The island is very small, and I can finish it very soon. It's a real fishing village. If you don't pursue too much, you can relax. If you like to be busy, this place may not be suitable. Warm Tip: Because Da'ao is not like many other islands as a holiday resort, so if you want to eat a variety of recommended delicious seafood restaurants, the best weekend, we arrived on weekdays, did not eat fresh seafood, little sadness... Another thing is to bring a good Hong Kong dollar. Here is no credit card, Alipay and so on. Cash is the safest!
Tung Chung MTR Station transfers to Line 11 Bus for direct access to Da'ao. The journey is a little far, about 40 minutes and many Bay roads. Carsick people should be prepared. But it's still worth visiting. There are also many shops, restaurants and snacks that buy dried seafood. Among them, the huge cuttlefish (HK$50 per serving) and the huge eggs are delicious. Others include eggs, roast squid and so on, which can be eaten along the way.
Located on an outlying island, far from the troubled urban areas, Da'ao is less affected by urbanization. It still retains the fishing village features of early Hong Kong, especially the waterway elevated houses, shacks (where fishermen used to live). The residents of Da'ao are mostly waterborne people. The traditional salted fish, shrimp sauce and fish belly are the must-buy letters from Da'ao. Seafood snacks are also very distinctive. The crisscrossing waterways and water shacks constitute the unique water village style of Da'ao. There are also 500-year-old Guandi Temple and Yanghou Temple in Kangxi Period. Transportation: MTR Tung Chung Station, get off and take the No. 11 New Lantau Bus to Tai O Bus Terminal
Look at the natural scenery of Hong Kong fishing village. There is a delicious hand-made charcoal-fired eggs shop with a long queue, but it tastes good and deserves a long queue. There are also many seafood, special fishing village scenery, natural and simple life, and convenient transportation. Metro takes to Tung Chung Station, bus No. 11 takes to the terminal, and there is also a host of East people near Tung Chung Station. Yicheng, a little like Autress, can come and find something by the way.
This time to Da'ao, it was very hot, but there was no hindrance to the dolphin outing! _________ Yes, we are very lucky to see the white dolphins, see the white dolphins, see the white dolphins (important things to say three times) off the bus from Angping, get off the car and take a boat, specifically asked the boatman can see the dolphins, the boatman said of course can see it, noon time is right! I must have thought that we were fooling us by boat. Unexpectedly, I really saw it! Read it, eat in the old street! Not bad! A great experience!
Tai O used to be the largest fishing village in Hong Kong, with the reputation of "Hong Kong Venice". Da'ao has beautiful scenery and elevated huts on waterways. It is the residence of fishermen. Rivers and streams of ancient shanty buildings intersect in an orderly manner in rows and rows, giving rise to a unique fishing village style.
Take the subway to Tung Chung, and then walk to Da'ao by No. 11 bus. The scenery along the way is good. When we arrived in Da'ao, we found that there were very few visitors, which was very good. I walked and patted, and my heart was very calm. I met my grandmother on the path. She didn't know what to say, but she smiled at me. She felt very friendly and lovely. I like this place very much. Although there is no complete set of Changzhou Lamma Island, it is more grounded in the atmosphere, and the cultural scenery is wonderful! It's worth a visit!
Starting from Guangzhou, I choose to take a bus from Shenzhen Bay to Tuen Mun. Why Tuen Mun? Because I want to go to Da'ao by boat. But there are fewer non-weekend shipping schedules and we can't catch the 11 o'clock boat. At last, we choose the Central Terminal of Tuen Mun to take E33 to Tung Chung Fire Station and transfer to No. 11 bus to Tai'ao Station. Why did you choose to take a bus? At first, it was to save money. After boarding the bus, I found that it was wise to take the bus. E33 used to pass through the Qingdao Bridge. It was the first time to take the bus to cross the Qingdao Bridge. By the way, I could enjoy the scenery of the bridge. It is suggested that you download an app called Hong Kong Ride Easy before you go out, which is similar to the function of the Ride Network. You can find the time and fare of traveling by different means of transportation. It is frugal for people. The No. 11 bus terminal is Da'ao, and then follow the crowd.
Da'ao Fishing Village can visit the original ecological Hong Kong Fishing Village without tickets. Traffic conditions, there are multiple buses to Da'ao. We can take bus No. 1 from Meiwo Ferry on Lantau Island to Da'ao directly, take bus No. 11 from Tung Chung Metro Pass to Da'ao, or take bus No. 21 to Da'ao after visiting Tiantan Dafo. In addition to visiting the original fishing villages, Tai'ao offers fast boat rides, fishing villages and sea trips. Each person ranges from HK$20 to HK$50. You can see Chinese white dolphins at sea.
