Tai O Fishing Village, Hong Kong: Photos

Once the base for smuggling, piracy, and illegal immigration out of mainland China the village of Tai O on Lantau Island is a sleepy fishing village still untouched by the rapid modernization of Hong Kong. Sitting on the banks of the river and South China Sea, and tucked between green mountains, barebones stilt house hover over the water or likewise mud during low tide. Dried fish, wet markets, and small seafood restaurants line the main street. The latest catch is laid out in the sun on wide, flat drying baskets. The massive apartment blocks and corperate high-rises of Asia’s world city feel a centuries away as the rhythm of the ocean transports you.
