Me and my husband visited Aberdeen Fishing Village just last week. There is nothing much to see and it's more like a 15 minutes ride between boats, it's hardly a glimpse into how a fishing village operates, skip it at all costs because most likely the guide will fool you into paying an enormous amount and you won't even get...

Probably one (including us) is not supposed to actually walk into the fish market, but no one says otherwise (in Hong Kong it is mandatory and wise to obey whatever sign you find, but there is no signs here prohibiting your entry); wear rain boots, as the water from the fishermen arriving here and selling their catch is knee high...

On my first trip to Hong Kong, I was lucky enough to stay at Ovolo Hotel at Aberdeen Harbor. The amazing view from my hotel room, only made me wander around the area, taking in all the colors, sounds and smells. My extended two week stay, gave me plenty of time to take in the attractions like a local. Great... More

I went there with high expectations of learning a bit about the lives of fishermen but I could hardly see any activity there. What I saw was empty, rusty, damaged boats with a boat or two with some fishes here and there. Nothing much to explore. I sort of got bored

It was... More

Tourists boats take you out to the floating fishing village. Most villagers have been relocated to government housing but there are still a few left. The trip doesn't take long but it's interesting and nice to be on the water with cool breezes after the hustle and bustle of the city.

I took a boat ride with a local amongst the boathouses and fisherman. I felt like I'd stepped back in history - colourful, fascinating and definitely worth a visit.

So going to an old fishing village was one of my top todo items for my weekend here. This was the place. Worlds largest floating resturant is in the harbor. And you are able to rent small boats and tool around the harbor. This was one if the highlights of my trip, as it was with most of those in... More

This has been built up to be an amazing experience but a 1 hour ride amongst fishing boats is not that amazing! We saw fishing folk living on their boats and the garish floating seafood restaurants with grungy rear facades. I guess you see the real daily life in an overgrown fishing village in Asia but not too exciting..

Arrived at the harbour by MRT bus from Central and found that we could take a 1 hour sampan trip around the harbour for $20 CAD each. Well worth the time and money. The pilot guide was very informative and entertaining.
