Aberdeen, Hong Kong: 59 reviews and 117 photos


Aberdeen lies on the southern side of Hong Kong Island and is the largest separate town on the island. It used to be a refuge for pirates two centuries ago and later it became a simple fishing village. Over the years, more and more high-rise buildings have been built here and Aberdeen has become a modern town with bustling waterfront activity. Jumbo the floating restaurant lives here (see travelogues). You can still see boat-dwellers who shuttle backwards and forwards in their sampans.

Address: Aberdeen, Hong Kong Island
Directions: Take bus no. 7 from Central ferry pier no. 7; or bus no. 70 from the Exchange Square Bus Terminal in the Central District; or bus no. 72 from Causeway Bay.
