How To Get There:
What to bring:
The guide was very nice and informative. Tai O is definitely worth seeing this way. The double kayak's "watertight" compartment leaked a bit, so the extra drybag provided by the guide was needed. The amount of rubbish in the sea was rather surprising.The place for lunch was as described, pond with small waterfall in the forest. Nice but the (mostly concrete) path there was somewhat littered with rubbish, too. Lunch itself was modest but ok. Don't expect much of a nature trip, it's more about a rather unique community, whose survival to this day is astonishing and raises questions about its future. The sea/landscape is impressive as everywhere in HK.
