Try a visit to the fishing village with Sampan (traditional boat) ride. The ride costs around HKD 80 per person. The Sampan takes you around the fishing village, wherein people still live on fishing boats on the water. This is in contrast to the luxury...More

The economic contrasts in this area are stark. There are enormous yachts parked next to essentially shacks. We took a ride around in a sampan which was noisy and smelly. There is a large floating restaurant in the middle of all of this.

This area is worth seeing. Take a sampan ride out into the harbour. There are still a couple of thousand people who live on the water and it is interesting to see how they live.

We stopped here as part of a half day city sightseeing tour. We had an organised trip around the harbour on a sampan. Interesting to see life on the harbour from a water perspective. Worth doing.

We took the metro here. Walked around fish and meat market stalls to see what people were buying. I have never seen so many fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, and fresh meat together. One can buy the fish and have it cooked in one of the...More
