Dried seafood markets in Hong Kong are found in the older and most traditional areas of town and along the fishing
villages around the coastline. These are very colorful array of shops and stands, with smells to match...
a photographer's delight and worth exploring for a different taste of
traditional every day life.
You will spot all sorts of dried seafoods and other edibles: dried fish skins, dried mushrooms, Chinese sausages, ginseng, dried oysters,
clams, abalone, sea cucumbers, Chinese teas and herbs...
Here are some pictures that will introduce you to some of the most popular dried food markets, they are easy to get to and can be combined with many other highlights:

This one we bumped into on our trip to the Aberdeen Fishing Village,

Market at Tai O
We visited the little fishing village of Tai O together with
our trip to the Big Buddha. It is only a 15 minute taxi or bus ride away from the Big Buddha and really worth a
stop for the traditional houses on stilts and to see a bit more of the beautiful island of Lantau, you might even get a peek at the elusive pink dolphins that
inhabit the area.
