Continue to Tai O Fishing Village, where the traditional life on water is well-preserved. It’s a little village with many houses built on stilts over the water. People get to their houses by walkways or by boats, so it’s sometimes called the ‘Venice’ of Hong Kong.

3. Special Notes for a Seat-in-a-Coach Tour

1) A seat-in-coach tour minimizes costs because expenses are shared among a larger group.

2) Seat-in-coach tours are operated by local business partners of China Highlights around China. China Highlights chooses business partners by strict quality standards. The service of a seat-in-coach tour may not always be as considerate as that of a private tour.

3) Visiting one or two shops or markets is always included in a seat-in-coach tour, but there is no pressure to buy if you are not interested.

4) A seat-in-coach tour usually consists of more than five people. You will have a local guide and use a 24-or-45-seat air-conditioned coach. We will pick you up at some appointed hotels at an appointed time. In contrast, a private tour provides a private car and guide, and we will pick you up at your hotel.
