It is smaller than I expected. But the warmth from people there impressed me. The first stall came to my eyes was one selling organic food from Germany such as dry beans, sugar, juices, etc. A neighbour store is Chun San Farm selling melon, bitter melon, pepper. The organic farm was converted from a pig farm. The plantation area is covered and fenced. Production cost is higher and growth is slower. Mrs She 佘 is very friendly. One can visit her farm at Mai Po by appointment.
Another nice encounter is a Chinese woman who had been living in Germany (Düsseldorf) for twenty years. She divorced from her husband and moved back to Hong Kong. She always wears a smile on her face. Despite all hardship and sadness she finds reasons to cheer herself up. I like her positive attitude.
It's a short walk to the old town of Tai Po. Some scenic shots were along the way, nice! Like a Chinese bridge at Tai Po River, sampan, small boat with a crane on top.....
Man Mo Temple with coils of burning incense, worshipper..... Fu Shin Street, best place to experience market scenes.
Other sightseeing points include the Hong Kong Railway Museum, old Observatory, Earthgod Shrine, the town well, Wishes tree. For sport activity, go for a cycling along the Tolo Harbour to Shatin.
