Mao’ao is famous for a century-old banyan tree and early-day stone houses, which are great examples of “building homes with what’s at hand.” The villagers used to help one another build their residences. The only costs were paid to stone-processing artisans. The wealth of a family could be seen from how refined and solid their house was. Each old stone house actually shows a different style, which is quite interesting. The fishermen here still use traditional fishing methods, and many households dry seaweed on their own. Mao’ao is truly a classical fishery village.
