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

I highly recommend going to Stanley, but not to Aberdeen. Do not waste your time. If the bus tours take you there, so be it, but do not venture there on your own. It is just not that interesting. We took the bus from Exchange bus terminal in Central. It is easy enough to do, but once there, little Chinese... More

Did not get to explore much here but it did not appeal too much, being a very busy harbour . We went on a Sampan trip but there was not too much to see. The floating restaurant looked lovely from the front, back not so good at the rear! It has a reasonable reputation though.

Actually , we are not aware that we have to pay extra $HK60 for the ride we thought, it's already included in our package tour. And we are glad that we did. We enjoyed the ride, we are able to see the typical fisherman's floating houses and had glimpse of the biggest floating restaurant, the jumbo restaurant.

We visiting the Fishing Village on Chinese New Year Eve. Unfortunately many of the inhabitants were not in the village. Most of the Chinese go to their families' homes for this type of celebration. Even though the village was almost "abandoned", the experience was educational. The people who are in the fishing village, live in their boats. This was a... More

We rode a Sampan boat while at the fishing village. We had not experienced anything like it before and were glad we did it. We went with Viator tours and would recommend them.

This was part of a free city tour itinenary. When we arrived, the guide told us we had to pay for the short ride on the sampan around the floating village. She had already negotiated a lower fare of HK$60 per person. Ride takes about 20-25minutes. Basically the sampan (called Wala locally & driven by an old lady) brings you... More

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
