OUR VISIT TO TAI O FISHING VILLAGE IN LANTAU ISLAND, HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 2 - Tai O Fishing Village.

From Ngong Ping Village, we took a bus to Tai O Fishing Village. Again, please excuse the poor quality photos.
It was a very hot afternoon.

Live fishes in plastic basins.
Stalls selling dried foodstuffs from the sea.

Thick fleshy cuttlefish.
Cuttlefish balls (approx. MYR 7.00 per piece) and big fish balls (approx. MYR 6.00 per piece).
My friend enjoying the fish and cuttlefish balls.
Narrow concrete walkway between the rows of houses. Come walk with me and let the pictures speak for themselves.
Tourists attraction.
Head shields to protect from the hot, hot sun.
Looking left and right.
Whole shop selling dried seafood stuffs.
Stainless steel door.
We noticed quite a number of houses using stainless steel door and door frame.

We took a turn onto Tai Ping Street.
Elderly folks relaxing under the shady tree.

More houses on stilts across the water.
These furry friends didn't even take any notice of those who walked past.
It was a short visit for us as we only visited a few places. Once again we hopped onto the bus as we had a dinner appointment with Pete's family.

You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens,

even the highest heavens, and all their starry host,

the earth and all that is on it, the seas and

all that is in them. You gave life to everything,

and the multitudes of heaven worship You.

(Nehemiah 9:6, New International Version-NIV)

  4. I think it's remarkable that the street names in in English and Chinese so I read up a bit of history og Hong Kong on Wikipedia.

    It's always fun following in your path on this trip.

    I had never seen large cuttlefish so of course I had to read up on cuttlefish. So many interesting facts. Thanks Nancy.
    Hugs,
    JB

    1. Mun, I didn't eat any fish or cuttlefish ball because I was still very full after the dessert. If you are going, do try to visit the other attractions, we missed those places.

    1. Kathy, we didn't lor. Some items were cheaper there after comparing the prices. But after discussing among ourselves, we decided not to buy any because the difference is not much. Not worth the trouble of carrying back the stuffs.
