About the hotel tour: The Tai O Heritage Hotel is a UNESCO award-winning hotel. Originally built in 1902, the building was originally the Old Tai O Police Station. In 2009, the Hong Kong Heritage Conservation Foundation revitalized the former police station into a nine-room boutique hotel. To learn more about the history of the hotel, click here.
