Stilt Houses in Tai O, Hong Kong 大澳棚屋

Stilt Houses in Tai O, Hong Kong

27.5 cm x 75 cm
Mixed Media: watercolour,  drawing pens, various markers and acrylic.

There used to be a lot more stilt houses around Hong Kong but as Hong Kong's urban areas kept on expanding, many were lost through reclamation and property development. The stilt houses in Tai O have been well preserved thanks to its remote location, which is in the south-western tip of Lantau Island. Today it has become a tourist destination visited by many during holidays.
