 The Stilt houses running along the banks of the river is a very good Tourist attractions.There is a steel  hanging bridge which connects the two halves of the village.One can see old houses destroyed by a fire in 2000 and are being rebuilt.This fishing village is famous for its dried catches from the sea.It was once a  famous for salt production area

But now the tourists take trips around to see the old stilt houses,old village huts,and  a 1699 chinese temple.Some locals arrange a guided tour of the village by walking around and on a small boat navigating through the narrow river and showing their culture of  living in stilt houses.

I was very fortunate to go for the Sunset cruise in a small boat and I can see these amazing chinese white Dolphins playing around in good numbers.This experience is very attractive and the local boat man charge a small fee of 20 HK$ for a 30 minute cruise which is very very cheap compared to Hongkongs costly living standards..
