Worth a go-see is the expanse east of Aberdeen. Get off from the Wong Chuk Hang train station (South Island line) and just walk on. The Factory, one of the edifices in the area, grabs attention with larger-than-life comic-style mural painted by Mauro Marchesi of...More

It is a nice drive through the Aberdeen Tunnel to Aberdeen on Hong Kong island. It is advisable to get off at the Aberdeen Promenade. It is just nice to walk around and see the fishing fleet

Took a Sampan ride around Aberdeen harbor. Lot's to see from the water, way more than you could ever see by land. For example, take a look at the picture I attached. People live on these things!

A quick 20 minute ride around the bay that was included with our hop on hop off ticket. A nice little trip to break up the day. Recommend if on the hop on hop off tour or if want to do something different.
