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

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
