Tai Wo

Tai Wo (Chinese: 太和) is an area in Tai Po Town in the New Territories of Hong Kong; it forms the northern part of Tai Po Town. It has its own railway station on the MTR and a market. Tai Wo Estate is a large public housing estate in the area; its shopping centre is adjacent to the Tai Wo MTR station.

Tai Wo was also a former name of the current Fu Shin Street (富善街), one of the market town in Tai Po. The Tai Wo Market (Chinese: 太和墟) was developed since 1892 by the Tsat Yeuk (七約, lit. "Seven Alliance"), an inter-village alliance, in order to break the monopoly of the old Tai Po Market (大埔墟) formed by the Tang Clan of Lung Yeuk Tau (龍躍頭鄧氏).

However, in present time, the name Tai Wo mostly refers to the area surrounding the Tai Wo Station of East Rail and the Tai Wo Estate. Fu Shin Street is being considered as a part of the old Tai Po Market.
