Earlier in the day we visited the Tian Tan Buddha, and couldn’t leave the area without a glimpse of Tai O Fishing Village. There is nothing completely interesting about this place aside from its somewhat unique location and architecture. The little village is located right on the water, with mountains looming closely behind to create an interesting backdrop. Most of the homes themselves are built directly over the water on stilts. Some still use traditional wood stilts but we noticed some steel and concrete as well.
Not entirely remarkable, but if you are in the area to see the Buddha, take the bus for pittance in fare to Tai O and take a walk around.
