The Pang Uk (棚屋 = "shack house") is a kind of stilt house found in Tai O, Lantau Island, Hong Kong. Pang uks are built on
water or on small beaches.
They were once found in many other fishing towns and villages in rural Hong Kong, but only those in Tai O are preserved in a
large scale, with some in the Lei Yue Mun Village and Ma San Tsuen in Lei Yue Mun. According to historians, pang uk were
evolved from boat houses of Tanka (蜑家) or fishing people, after moving to reside on land.
