Tai O is located in the western part of Lantau Island and is the most famous fishing village in Hong Kong. At present, Tai O still retains the unique fishing village of Hong Kong in the early days, and is known as the "Venice of Hong Kong". The shacks are the symbol of Tai O fishing village and one of the most unique landscapes in Hong Kong. Tai O was once Hong Kong's main fishing port and a garrison town, and it has also been a major fishing and salt industry for a century. For generations, Tai O has been a gathering place for fishermen and their families. Fishermen thought that living on plain land was insecure, so they built shacks on the shore to live. The densely packed shack, criss-crossing waterways and bridges constitute the face of Tai O today. You can also take a sampan boat to shuttle through the waterways and admire the stilt houses up close; or take a walk around the fishing village to feel the style of the fishing village of Tai O.
