Owner description: Aberdeen is known for its floating islands where local fishermen can be seen plying their craft from their junks. It is also home to the floating restaurant, Jumbo. The best way to experience Aberdeen Harbour is to take a cruise tour by sampan.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Aberdeen promenade
With bus from Central or maybe from Stanley.
The interesting thing here are the fish restaurants and maybe even more interesting to take a harbor tour with a Sampan.
If you walk around there you will always be approached by a very old lady showing printed cards about the harbor tour… 30 minutes is quite enough.
You could bargain about 30 – 60%
Open about 10 – 18

“Floating trash dump”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The junk boats were cool to look at for a while, however the ride lasted way too long. The harbor is pretty gross and smelled bad. It's worth going to, but maybe skip the boat ride.

“Nothing impressive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Not much to go about. You can go often but nothing to look for. Very hard to explain, have to see for yourself. But many people loves but not for me.

“The Sampan ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I enjoyed the sampan ride maybe because I was able to take a closer look at the gigantic seafood floating restaurant. However, I was quite shocked upon seeing the poor families living in the harbour right in the midst of the wealthy Hong kong.

“Junking Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Took an hour junk ride around the harbor. It was a great place to photograph the dramatic contrasts of Hong Kong. The vast wealth and blatant poverty are all on display is a richly colorful experience.
