Travel Challenge: the street markets of Tai O, Hong Kong

Today’s post comes courtesy of Ailsa and her weekly photo challenge. This week’s challenge? Street markets! These photos were taken during our anniversary trip to Hong Kong last October.

Tai O is a village in Lantau Island, an island that is also home to Hong Kong International Airport, Hong Kong Disneyland, and the Po Lin monastery.

I will never understand why people need these things to remember a trip to the beach πŸ™ Please note the triton shell that’s really NOT supposed to be there. Be a responsible tourist: don’t buy shells and starfish as souvenirs!
And these too! Who in their right mind would want a wall hanging made from pufferfish? πŸ™
The non-depressing part of our rounds through Tai O: freshly grilled oysters and prawns with cheese. Gawd they were so good but so expensive as well.
