It was a so-so visit away from the busy Hong Kong scenery. Aberdeen has a nice view of harbor and some sampans. Not a very exciting experience for me.

This being the third visit since 1995, the change is dramatic. Fewer San pans and more luxury cruisers, the floating restaurant is still there but the second which is attached looks as thought it will fall apart any time. A San pan trip round the...More

They say one of the Tanka women will find you before your find them. This is absolutely accurate. We were found, we negotiated and then we had a great 30 minute ride around this busy harbor, of boats of all sizes, lots of families living...More

There wasn't as much to do as I'd expected unless you take the boat ride. The most eye catching think is the big Jumbo floating restaurant. I took the boat tour, which was interesting but fairly brief.

Worth a go-see is the expanse east of Aberdeen. Get off from the Wong Chuk Hang train station (South Island line) and just walk on. The Factory, one of the edifices in the area, grabs attention with larger-than-life comic-style mural painted by Mauro Marchesi of...More

It is a nice drive through the Aberdeen Tunnel to Aberdeen on Hong Kong island. It is advisable to get off at the Aberdeen Promenade. It is just nice to walk around and see the fishing fleet

Aberdeen Harbour is a must do on most of the sightseeing tours of Hong Kong. It’s probably our least favourite part to be honest, but you do get a different view of life here. The person driving the sampan is usually a grumpy old lady,...More

Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going,
relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and
boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in
the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the
vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores –
it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area.
