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 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

Aberdeen is a mix of mostly large pleasure craft and many size fishing boats from small sampans to large family fishing enterprises. There are 2 floating seafood restaurants in the same location. The best way to see the village is to take one of the...More

We took a bus from our hotel to Aberdeen. We loved the sampan ride through the waterways filled with the simplest of sampan homes to the million dollar yachts. A fascinating part of the city.

I expected something older and more traditional. Instead the harbor is surrounded by high-rise apartments. I guess that many of the old boats in the harbour are traditional as people obviously live there. Lots of black kites (birds) flying overhead which I found exciting.

A traditional fishing village, now making much more income oit of tourism (to be expected, I suppose). Just about worth the trip but included in many sightseeing tours.

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.
