Boating 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

Our travel map shows Aberdeen being a harbour and also fishing village. Well, we were quite excited when we took a bus to Aberdeen. Beautiful promenade with nice and clean toilet facility scattered along the way. Not sure about the description of fishing village though. Yes, we could see fish market off the jetty and also a lot of jetty... More

If you have leasurer time to kill, a trip on one of the local's boats is quite relaxing - although there is a lot of activity on the water, it is a far cry from the busy streets of Hong Kong. The river people are somple, hardworking people, who don't speak English, but you'll get along. For a view bucks... More

The junks and sampans were there but the fishermen and their village is getting smaller. Obviously, modernization is catching up with the old ways as high rise buildings and luxury yachts are beginning to make their way into Aberdeen. A journey in history is worth an Aberdeen visit to see the harbor where the British first set foot when they... More

Took a tour today of Aberdeen - went out on a boat to see what's left of the floating community. What once number 100,000 boats is now less than 2000, soon they too will be gone as the government is moving fishermen and their families into housing complexes and not allowing them to live on their boats anymore. Its worth... More

Went on a sampan tour of the harbour and saw many fishing boats and houseboats which were very old. In contrast and not that far away were modern cruisers! Also saw the Jumbo Restaurant for the first time after years of seeing it in travel brochures. Amazing tour.
