"Boat People" Aberdeen Tip by Boca24

Aberdeen, Hong Kong: 59 reviews and 117 photos

  Life on the boat
by Boca24

Aberdeen is known for its boat people. These people live their lives on boats, according to my guide there are some who never actually set foot on land.

Unfortunatly the government has been reclaiming the land making the harbor area where they live smaller; forcing many to leave their boats and seek more modern habitats.

This is worth the visit at least just to get a sense of how different group of people live in Hong Kong.

Address: Hongkong Island
