THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE MOVING INTO TAI PO
The coastal area of Pak Shek Kok in Tai Po is going to be a major battle ground for new developments in the future. Besides Phases I and II of The Horizon, there are four more projects in development here: Ontolo by Great Eagle Holdings, Solaria by K. Wah Group, St. Martin by Sun Hung Kai Properties, as well as Mayfair by the Sea 8 by Sino Land.
Every year during the wet season, the streets of Tai Po are constantly submerged in rain water. This problem is particularly bad on Nam Wan Road near the Tai Po MTR station, as well as the surrounding area of Ting Kok Road and Tung Tsz Road.
Tai Po's primary school net is No. 84, which includes Tai Po Government Primary School, Po Leung Kuk Tin Ka Ping Primary School, Sacred Heart of Mary Catholic Primary School, and Tai Po Old Market Public School (Plover Cove). The Tai Po District secondary school net covers Hong Kong Taoist Association The Yuen Yuen Institute No.2 Secondary School, Tai Po Sam Yuk Secondary School, Buddhist Tai Kwong Chi Hong College, and Wong Shiu Chi Secondary School, among others. The area also has international schools such as the American International School Hong Kong, International College Hong Kong Hong Lok Yuen, Japanese International School, Malvern College Hong Kong, and Norwegian International School.
