We were here on a Gate1 tour and made a stop by Jumbo Kingdom, where some of us went on a sampan ride out to the Aberdeen fishing village. We were here in 1986 as well as 1992 and it has changed considerably - and not as interesting as it was before. Our local tour guide recommended that we do... More

Aberdeen is a small district where is located between a country park and traditional fishing village. Admittedly, it will be quite boring to visitors as tourist information and facilities are not well-managed like in Central or Tsim Sha Tsui. But as a resident in Aberdeen, I still recommend you spending some time here. Most visitors take the most typical itin... More

The Jumbo Restaurant in Aberdeen is a famous tourist mecca, but the rear end looks tad greasy -- just as long s he food tastes, okay, people will go there. The fishing boats are being edge out by luxury cruisers. Moorings, I suppose, go to the highest bidder but it's a bit sad seeing fishing boats replaced by luxury yachts.... More

Went to Aberdeen to go to the Jumbo floating restaurant which I have reviewed seperately. The boats and restaurants are an amazing sight and one of the best places to go for street photography, especially at night. The sights and smells are incredible.

Aberdeen has kept this mythical image, inherited from the 1960’s, of a village of floating junks with people living aboard their rickety fishing boats, and the Jumbo restaurant floating in the middle. The Jumbo Kingdom floating restaurants are there all right – see specific reviews. But the population has long been resettled in some of the numerous high rise circling... More

This is the place to see parked as well as moving sampans or take a cruise on one. Exhibits along the promenade explains the history of Aberdeen. Sit in a mock up sampan or take a photo with a statue of a resident old-timer. Aberdeen is home to the famous Jumbo seafood restaurant. Boat ferries can take you across the... More

The other side of Hong Kong and you feel like you are almost in another city. One with less hustle and bustle and fewer people that speak English. Worth coming for a visit to Jumbo Floating Restaurant.

As many reviewers state Aberdeen isn't a great tourist destination, but a trip around the harbour in a sampan certainly gives you an insight in to how hard life must still be for some of those living in HK, it's not all Gucci and Tiffany. We caught a public transport bus on Pok Fu Lam Road to Aberdeen, having enjoyed... More

Hope on the big bus to Aberdeen; if you are sitting on the upper level sit on the right side no over hanging branches to beat you up :)
