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.
The Sampan Boat ride to me is one of the most exciting part of our trip to Hongkong. Seeing those old HK boats called junks is like being transported to early HK society. Riding it is an experience in itself as you see other old...More
Glad I did the sampan ride. very interesting to see the floating resturant. you can hop on and off the sampan and the floating resturant if you want a feed. I stayed on and enjoyed seeing all around there and to see how people live...More
We did this all on our own. Rode the bus down to the pier. Knew what to expect as we crossed the walkway to get to the harbour and a nice elderly lady asked us if we wanted a sampan ride. Since I knew what...More
This was a side trip packaged with our Big Bus tour stopover at Aberdeen, Hong Kong.
Pier boarding was chaotic, individual tour operators (non-BB) jockeying for position to board their group from mainland China ahead of others. Sampan operator steered the boat in a water...More
The tranquility of the harbour could not have been better improved than by this picturesque jumbo sized part of Chinese culture. However it can be said that this was not to be equalled by the food served and I left feeling rather dissatisfied. It was...More
We really enjoyed the ride and the antics of our driver. Quite a fun place going in and out of the fishing boats. Wish we could visited the floating restaurant. A real treat and would have done it again.
Hong Kong's bustling Zigang Harbour is historic and well worth a visit. We booked a tour which included a boat ride around the harbour, with splendid sunset views and a fine dinner at the "floating" restaurant. Yes, it floats, but it does not go anywhere,...More
Sadly a sampan tour has become a trip around a watery car park. The boat dwelling Tanka population seem to have declined so the atmospheric liveaboard boats, providing picturesque alleys where you would almost expect James Bond speedboat cat and mouse chases, have largely gone....More
I always do this. Leave a comment written in bad English. Better then not to speak it out and see someone step on a trap.
- Basically, over price. Same type of food you could get from Aberdeen Center. Which is where you take the...More
Even in the bitter cold... I loved this! We were with friends when we decided to jump aboard the sampan for a quick trip of the harbour area... I would definitely recommend the trip! First of course is the initial excitement of a cold day...More
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
