Aberdeen Harbour is a cross between a rubbish dump, a car park for industrial fishing boats and a squatter camp. The water is filthy, there’s even a sign advising people not to swim because the water is polluted. Most of the plastic rubbish comes from...More

Overall not much to see on a boat trip here. People seem to go a bit overboard on seeing the big boat restaurant but the village itself is just a few boats. I was expecting a slightly longer boat ride and something a bit more....More

For HK$60 per person, it wasn't bad value and it was nice to get some fresh cooler air off the water on the trip around the finshing village. Really nothing more at the time we visited, than a heap of old boats all moored, and...More

As a district, it is one of the quietest in Hong Kong I guess its a nice place to live. Unless during working days or time boats arrive from fishing the place get a strong fish smell, this is my doubt. As a fish market,...More

An authentic sampan tour of the renowned floating village of Aberdeen provides a first hand view of Hong Kong's severe income disparity, and a memorable experience. Although still a working fishing village it has been engulfed by commercial towers and factories. Piloted by elderly folks...More

Had heard so much about must do Sampan ride in Hongkong that even though we saw the old boats taking people on an unimpressive ride, we decided to give it a try. Bought tickets from the Aberdeen promenade and hopped on one if the Sampan...More

This fishing village comprises a higgly-piggly jumble of floating house-boats and fishing vessels. It is fascinating to watch the people on board living out their lives and earning their livelihoods. Should be a must for first-time visitors.

I took a free return Sampan ride to the Jumbo restaurant or you could pay public transport fees,which is also a sampan ride, for HK$2+ . Private Sampan ride, for me, it wasn't necessary.
