  Fishing Fleet in Aberdeen Harbour
by joecooper

One of the most memorable things I did in Hong Kong was to take a Sampan ride around Aberdeen harbour. You can easily catch a Sampan from the Promenade on the harbour side, haggling is OK. During the summer months fishing is banned in the South China Sea so I was lucky enough to see the entire fleet of Junks sitting in the harbour. On the tour you'll spot the incredible Jumbo Floating Restaurant (Largest in the world), extravagantly luxurious yachts and powerboats, as well as the everyday people on their huge houseboats, complete with TV and fridge. Apart from the harbour, the rest of Aberdeen is pretty unremarkable and the boat tour can be combined with visiting another area of the island such as Stanley or one of the country parks.

Address: South Hong Kong Island
Directions: You'll need to take a bus from Central, they are very regular. Check at the station for departures, the ride is about 20mins.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
