Loud and busy palce. It has completly lost its former village charm. However wort a visit if you like local food and do some shopping. The recreation area is between the main road and the river. You could not imaging a noisier place to be. As well worth a visit but not to relax.

It you have seen old photos of Aberdeen Harbour as a bustling fishing village, jam packed with boats, then you may be a little disappointed. Gone are the heady days of the 60's and 70's when this small harbour was packed to the rafters, and noise levels were through the roof. Now, with the fishing industry changing, it is a... More

In total contrast to the rush and bustle of Victoria Harbour, Aberdeen offers a view of how life used to be with the fishing community, and some still live on their boats. Aberdeen is easy to access by bus or, as we did, to combine with a trip to Stanley or Repulse bay, stop off at Aberdeen for an hour,... More

We took a sampon ride around the village where one sees extremely expensive yachts to barely-holding-together-and-above-water fishing boats. The fishing boats are the life and blood of the citizens as they fish to live. The sampan ride was an enjoyable 20 minutes amongst the boats with the background skyline.

We were informed by our guide that this is the first place where people from the Mainland China started to arrive. What we did was we were on a sampan ride for a brief cruise around the fishing village. The experience allows visitors to appreciate their roots.

It is not far from the hustle and bustle of the heart of Hong Kong, but seems like light-years away from it all at first look. There were rows upon rows of the old-fashioned junks and sampans, some house boats where the fishermen and their families still live. A totally different environment to the hustle and bustle of the big... More

Take a bus to Aberdeen, get off at the Aberdeen Promenade stop. Take a walk along the promenade and within minutes, you will be approached by a local offering a Sampan ride. Negotiate. Expect to pay somewhere around 10 US per person but negotiate for less, we had two adults and a child and negotiated a half hr tour for... More

It is kind of new things for the kid as she can experience small sampan tour. The sampan we had was clean and well kept. Enjoy the day.

If you have time to kill it's worth the visit to see the old side of Hong Kong and enjoy the fishing village but if you have limited time you won't miss anything by bypassing it. You get hustled a lot to do a boat trip and there's not much to see. One lady followed us around for 30 minutes... More
