Aberdeen, Hong Kong: 11 reviews and 10 photos


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. Some 20,000 ?boat people? live on 3,000 junks and sampans in Aberdeen harbour.
