TAI O FISHING VILLAGE

Updated: Aug 17

Difficulty Rating: 3/10

Most of the walk is on flat ground with some uphill sections towards the end. The only reason it feels a little difficult is because of the length of the hike.

Duration: 4 hours

Takes quite a while just to get to the starting point of the hike as the route is confusing.

Cell Service: 4/5

Instagrammability: 2/5


How To Get There:


Hiking Directions:

  • Make sure you get off at Ha Ling Pei (We missed our stop and ended up in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, we got a lift from two Chilean guys back to Ha Ling Pei!)

  • After getting off at Ha Ling Pei, input "Hau Wong Temple" into Google Maps and follow the directions. There should be a 5 minute walk in the direction of the bus, and then a right (image 1). Keep following the directions on Google Maps (image 2&3).

  • The 15-20 minute walk is confusing until the beginning of the trail (image 5). When you see a children's playground, turn left. DO NOT continue towards Hau Wong Temple, as the trail head is not in that direction. However, the temple is worth a short visit (image 6).

  • You can then input "Tai O Fishing Village" or "Tai O Heritage Hotel" to ensure you're on the right path, but it isn't necessary as there are directions indicating "Tai O" throughout the trail.

  • Once you reach the fishing village, follow the signs to "Tai O Bus Terminus". Take bus number 11 back to Tung Chung MTR station (quite a long ride!).

There is a cute ice-cream store called "Tai Ohhhh" just before the bridge near the bus terminus for a post-hike reward. We tried the strawberry and kiwi ice popsicles (brand name - iSee iSee) and they were as great as they looked!


Overall, this hike is a full-day trip so make sure you have enough time and food + water, especially because there are no kiosks on the way.
