This place gets a slating from many people because of the cost and food quality. I've eaten here several times and never had a problem. yes, it is more expensive than some of your run-of-the-mill dim sum restaurants but this is a top tourist lure and you are not just paying for the view but also for the entertaining experience...

As a result of taking a package tour from the Bus company , it included a free ride on a sampan which was great. Was very fortunate that on the Saturday afternoon we took this ride, it was the annual dragon boat race championship, which made the area very colourful with all the flags in display and large crows watching...

What contrasts! The old and the new - the rich jetsetter's yacht next to a fisherman's houseboat. Worth seeing and a fun way to the restaurant Jumbo.

It is indeed a great city.. thank to the British planner who built it and maintained over the years and given to China to honor the values of an agreement. A small city but great place for holidays and shopping.

We went to the harbour as part of a half day tour of the city. The sanpan ride was extra, but worth every penny. We went to see the Jumbo floating fish restaurant (and then went round the back, which is not very impressive). Then we went to see the fishing boats, and were amazed to see the wind turbines...

This run down and pretty dull part of Hong Kong has been overdeveloped with lots of high rise apartment blocks - many bought by Chinese investors and now sat empty. It used to be a scenic part of the island but right now is uninteresting with lots of smelly fishing boats moored in the harbour. Nothing really to see for... More

Straight forward bus journey to get here. Worth a wander along to see a real fish market, take a boat ride and you have to visit the JUMBO floating restaurant.

Our tour guide Thomas Lai was so personable and friendly that he made our tour so welcoming. He gave us all these minute details of all the aspects and cultures of the people of the harbour. Not only was he a good tour guide but he was our very own photographer with my DSLR camera whose shots i found were... More

Aberdeen Harbour, sampan tour gave a great history of the harbour & provided a personal view into the classes of Hong Kong, from old shabby fishing boats to luxury yachts. I felt honoured to have seen the fishing harbour, which the Tanka people still live on the boats & continue to fish, although was sad to hear that in the... More
