Tourists know this place mostly for the floating restaurants but there's more than that. This is a very local area so there are nice shopping areas, good restaurants, a few temples and few tourists if you avoid the harbour.

Rides around this large protected harbor with lots of fishing boats on a sampan is a must do item. Private rides are not all that expensive and give you a break from walking and the sun. Don't miss the Jumbo Fish Restaurant.

South Island line to Lei Tung and exit A to Ap Lei Chau promenade. There, get a delightful short ferry ride across the harbour to Aberdeen promenade. Just wander around and take in the sites. Fishball flat rice noodles the specialty.
