new pictures of Aberdeen on my latest hong kong soujourn
Aberdeen was formerly a fishing village. Even though quite a few commercial towers and factories have been built in this district in recent years, Hong Kong Tsai still maintains the characteristics of a traditional fishing village. There are also boat-dwellers in the Aberdeen Bay, shuttling with sampan along the Bay, from which one can have a glimpse of the life of the boat-dwellers, The famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant (One was Moved and now is in Manila Bay in the Philippines!) and the Tai Bak (Tai Bei) Seafood Boat are located at the Aberdeen Habour. Visitors can enjoy a free-of-charge travel by ferry boat to the restaurants to have a taste of delicious seafood.
Aberdeen was named, in 1845, after the British Secretary of State for War and the Colonies, George Hamilton-Gordon, 4th Earl of Aberdeen. It is famous to tourists for the boat people living in the harbour and the floating seafood restaurants such as the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. The boat people are generally associated with the fishing industry, and there are also several dozen expatriates living on boats in the harbour.
