Tai O Fishing Village, Lantau Island

We toured through this village, which is built on stilts, in a small boat. This was an extremely busy fishing village but there are practically no fishing boats left apart from those that take out tourists on big game fishing tours. The reason for the decline was that government in an attempt to ensure a sustainable amount of fish has banned fishing during the months of June and July across the Hong Kong area. Tourism is now the main income and all the tour buses drop in here on the way to the Po Lin Monastery.
