I like the village where u can see the Chinese simple and old way of living.How they survive in everyday life before...How they manage to live with that kind of house and a very interesting work(catching fish and sell it along the road).

Took the bus from Stanley to Aberdeen to find that there really was not too much of interest. There is the floating restaurant but with so many bad reviews on that, I wondered why we had bothered to visit. Bus ride was scenic and was...More

We visited the Aberdeen Fishing Village as part of a 1/2 day tour of Hong Kong. We opted to spend the $60 hkd for the sampan boat ride. The ride was fun and we got a closer look at the other boats. The sampan boats...More

A quick trip here will give you a different flavor of Hong Kong Island. Away from all the skyscrapers you wander amid yachts and the floating restaurant. Nothing special but worth a foray.

We took a ride in a motorized sampan around this part of the harbor. It was interesting to see how many people are living in these boats. There is so much trash floating around in the dirty water. We did ride around the Jumbo Kingdom...More

Interesting idea to "show" / promote something non-existant - just as in the archeological sites, visitors need to use imagination, and read about what was there, and when :/ I happen to like boat rides, so I enjoyed the views from a bit lower perspective...More

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

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.
