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.

The sampan tours take you on a leisurely meandering ride around and through the fishing fleet at the harbour. It is where the new meets the old. The old building are surrounded by super fancy new hi rises.

Took a half hour sampan ride around the harbour after being badgered by a hard-sell woman. Must say that she did us a favour. Interesting to see the complete variation of lifestyles on the water.

Another cold day in Hong Kong! I'm sure this place would be charming when warm and sunny. Aberdeen centre like any other. We alighted there from the bus and moved on quickly. Promenade clean, nice enough walk where you'll find the Sanpam river rides. The...More
