Interesting, value for money costing $HK250 for a family of 5 although 30 mins in duration. Debris in water was very disturbing with the volume of polystyrene beyond belief. Look... read more

I was not impressed with this event. It was a short exposure to how the poor fisherman live so in reality; I saw a part of Hong Kong I would not have seen without this experience. That said, the boat wasn't exactly how I pictured a sampan, the person steering the boat spoke no English so there was no commentary... More

Interesting, value for money costing $HK250 for a family of 5 although 30 mins in duration. Debris in water was very disturbing with the volume of polystyrene beyond belief. Look for the kitchen area at the rear of the floating restaurant, put me off eating there😁. Good collection of high end cruisers to salivate at😤

The ride around the fishing village was interesting as we left the dock there were some major large pleasure ships I would guess privately owned then we came to the very old almost rusty fishing vessels anchored side by side with barely any room to pull out to the harbor. You could also see that these were the homes of... More

I came here with a tour I booked online and it was really worth a visit. It's amazing to see different kind of boats and yachts here and there were shops also. There was jackie Chan yacht as we were sailing away.

This area of Hong Kong is a mixture of old and new moulded into one. Love the atmosphere and how the locals live and go about their business. A sampan ride (not expensive) is a great way to enjoy the harbour. Good fun and great for kids

Took a sampan boat ride through the harbour of Aberdeen. Was very interesting to say the least of how many people still live in this fishing village. The harbour is full of rubbish which was quite surprising to me. Was well worth the 20 min trip though.

The place is quite easy to go to. However, you do need a means of transport. The village itself is dying and so not much to see. There is a tour on a fishing boat which costs HK60 paid directly to the boat owner. We were taken a tour (25 minutes or so).

It is supposed to be a visit to an old way of HK, a historical trip. To look at how the old HK look like, a simple plain fisherman village. But rather than a 'heritage' trip, the place is more of a marina with hundreds of luxury yachts docking at the pier. Only a few fishing boats and true there... More

We were on the hop on hop off bus so we got off here and did a Sampan tour of the fishing junks. Ok if it's on your way. Real eye opener.. I probably wouldn't do a special trip. Best part was seeing Eagles flying around.

traditional fishing boats, floating restaurants, - really a great place that for a few HK dollars you get a tour around the harbour on a traditional covered fishing boat
