Aberdeen harbour was a beautiful place. When we visited on July 25 what we saw was unbelievable filthy. The water in the harbour was filled with plastic and foul smelling refuse. I can't believe the HK's tourist association recommend this place as a destination. What is worse is that locals say it is like this all the time.

We were lucky when we travelled to Aberdeen as all the fishing boats were in the harbour, it's the time of year when no fishing is allowed. The sight was spectacular. Having caught the bus we walked along the promenade past the fish markets to the floating fishing village. Many of the Aberdeen villagers live on the boats on the... More

I was here 20 years ago and I have to say that it's not quite as quaint these days as it was then. The boats are all bigger and bit more industrial. However, it was still quite interesting to see how these folks live.

This small fishing village is home to quaint painted sampans, large luxury yachts and liveaboard vessels. Jumbo Restaurant sits in the middle of this unique and old area of Hong Kong.

Take a sampan ride for 60 HKD per person. Lovely and interesting boats...some old and traditional and some modern ones. Boat rides take 20 minutes and is the best way to see these unusual homes.

One needs to take the sampan ride to see the village. A lot of cruisers & yachts were seen parked. Sampan ride is a boat ride by the locals. Jumbo floating restaurant can be reached via boat. The village is small & seems to have squeezed over the period of time but is good to see the old side of... More

this little village is fascinating as its all on stilts and people are so hard working and friendly. You can watch them bring in their goods on their boats watch them lay them out and dry and prepare them. It is so old world and so amazing to watch.

I don't think the Aberdeen Fishing Village will be there for much longer as it is being squeezed out by the Hong Kong skyscrapers & the yachts & cruisers of the rich & famous. You need to take a sampan ride to see the fishing village up close & the boats are owned by the locals & taking tourists supplements... More

Took a sampan ride to get to the Jumbo floating restaurant. Sampans driven by elderly ladies - cost 60 HKD (approx $12 AUD) Worth the ride and views.
