You really do need to experience this, a short trip on a boat around the fishing village. Although there are not many lived on fishing boats in the village anymore but there is the floating restaurant and lots of smaller boats to see. Each bout...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

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

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.
