大埔Tai Po

29 11 2008

大埔daai6bou3 is a district where I have been living since I was five. It is located at the east of the New Territories 新界san1gaai3 near the Tolo Harbour. Tai Po is divided into two parts: the old market and the new reclaimed area. Besides shopping malls and residential area, you can find a lot of green areas in Tai Po inasmuch as it is relatively less polluted.

Tai Po is quite a traditional district where you can find temples around. One of the famous temple is called Man Mo Temple 文武廟man4mou5miu2. It was built after two gods, Man the god of literature and Mo the god of war.

Twenty minutes from the district centre you can find a popular place in Hong Kong for barbecues and cycling—Tai Mei Tuk 大尾篤daai6mei5duk1! It also provides us with sea activities and you can also go rowing or fishing there!
