The Jumbo Kingdom is two restaurants: the Jumbo and the Tai Pak, which "float" (on concrete pillars) in Aberdeen Harbour. You reach them via a free ferry from the Aberdeen Praya. They appeared in the harbour after WW2 and have become a Hong Kong institution, appearing in novels and movies and millions of tourist photos. They've been burned down and... More

As we were walking along the promenade at Aberdeen harbour, we were approach by a woman offering us an hour ride in a Sanpan. We agreed. A quick phone call later and the Sanpan was waiting for us to board. Our guide was fantastic. His English was passable and his accent was difficult to understand. We only understood half of... More

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
