This is a very different Hong Kong which you will not expect to see unless you have read about it. An hour bus ride from the Tung Chung bus interchange passing through hill and beaches and eventually arriving at the fishing village of Tai-O. It is relatively quiet as most of the people have left to live and work in the big city itself. Most of the people you see are tourists or city slickers trying to catch a glimpse of the an old fishing village before it disappears. A good way to see the village is to get on the boat for a half hour ride for HK$20 (a bargain). The boat will eventually bring you to the sea to try your luck at catching sight of some pink dolphins if you are lucky. The boat ride gives a good view of the stilt houses of the fishermen. NOTE: choose a boat that is filling up fast because the boat will not leave unless it is almost filled. You can walk around the village or head for the rejuvenated police station which is now a boutique hotel. There is a cafe where you can have a cosy R & R before walking back to the bus terminal.
