Chief executive-elect Carrie Lam made a lightning visit to Tai O on Friday, one of a number of locations she has dropped in on since winning the CE poll in March.
She spent an hour in the town late Friday afternoon, taking part in the fifth anniversary ceremony for the Tai O Heritage Hotel and then strolling around the town with Tai O rural committee chief Lou Cheuk-wing, HK01.com reported.
She shook hands with a salted fish store owner and met people at the Tai O Community Hall. Lam reportedly agreed to look into upgrading the paths between the village’s distinctive stilt homes, which Lou said were being worn out from the increasing number of tourists.
Apart from Tai O, Lam has also visited Sha Tin, Tsuen Wan, Kwun Tung, Hung Hom and Central.
