Old captain and Stilt Houses

The Stilt Houses is the symbol of Tai O.100 years before, Tai O is HKG fishing village and soldier stay place. Salt is also one of the important place.

From begining Tai O is the gathering place of fishermen, due fishermen grow fast and lack of security for live in land. So Tai O people chose to build their house on the stilts. Under this situation, made Tai O to be a different kind of place.
