What you can expect

Hop on the bus together with your local host and enjoy a scenic bus ride bound for the small fishing village Tai O. Along the way delight in the countryside ambiance and the sight of buffalos walking along the road. Tai O is a traditional village rich in culture and one of the best-preserved places on Lantau, and all of Hong Kong.

It's time for a refreshment on a traditional stilt house before hopping on a boat trip - the best way to check out this beautiful island. Cruise around and take a look at the stilt houses of this tightly-knit fishing community and visit a famous temple along the way.

Follow your local friend to the next treasure: the Big Buddha! Be ready!

Every Lonely Planet Experience also comes with six months' free access to Lonely Planet's Guides app, which includes over 8,000 destination guides, and unbeatable discounts in the Lonely Planet store.

The tour does not operate on weekend and during Hong Kong public holidays due to high volume of tourists
