We didnt realise we had to pay for this til we got on the boat - it was an extra in the tour (Hong Kong Island Tour). Complete waste of money and tiny in comparison to other fishing villages if you do organised tours.

Our excursion included a visit to the fishing village and a ride on a sampan. If the ride included a guide who could point out how the fishing community functioned, interacted with the community and economy, it might have been worthwhile. We simply had a 20-minute boat ride with a single crew member who didn't speak at all, and probably... More

Go down there in the morning and discover the activity in the harbor. Take one of the Junke´s (you can work on the price) and discover all the life, from the primitive fishermen's boats to trawlers to luxury yachts. Notice the difference of the front and back of the big floating Bamboo restaurant (We would never go to a turist... More

The Aberdeen fishing village tour was fantastic. We hired a Sampan with another couple and were taken on a wonderful tour for over an hour. We saw the Navy/Police boats, the floating restaurant, and many fisherman on their boats - and even a dog on a boat! The smells and smiles of the people was a joy to see and... More

Sampans and yachts side by side with the soaring sky scape of Hong Kong - this is really worth the time.

It is fun if you want to go boating in the Hong Kong Harbour. I thought this was an average attraction.

You need to pay HKD60 to ride the boat. For me, it wasn't that interesting. Just to see people live in boats.

When in Hong Kong this would be a great tour to take. We enjoyed the many aspects the tour had to give us. From the many boats to the commerce.

Nice experience, to see the houses on stilts. Jumbo Kingdom Floating restaurant is also a must see......

This was part of our half-day bus tour of Hong Kong. We got onto a sampan and rode into the harbour and through what was left of the Aberdeen Fishing Village. It is a collection of houseboats, fishing boats and a few larger factory fish boats. The government no longer allows new houseboats but the existing ones were "grandfathered in"... More
