Aberdeen Harbour- A popular scenic spot in Hong Kong not only famous for its Jumbo Floating Restaurant, one must note the robust life style of Aberdeen Fishing village along the Aberdeen Bay. You can choose to embark onto the Lowest Class water taxi Sampan(motored by engine) or Medium Class motor Launch to ferry you across to/from the Jumbo Floating Restaurant or to tour along the Fishing Village. The cheapest transport, ie water taxi sampan, cost you HKD60 per Head to tour along the whole Bay of the Aberdeen Fishing Village. As compared, you will also find a few high-end speed boats and expensive yachts (owned by billionaires) along the jetty near the Jumbo Restaurant.
If you are a tourist, it is recommended to take the chance to experience how to ride or stay in a sampan boat as the local fishermen did. Aberdeen Harbour continues to preserve its ancient lifestyle of the fisherman, and remains a scenic highlight of Hong Kong tourists.
Close observation also reveal that the sampans and other old-fashioned boats serve as floating homes for thousands of people against the backdrop of the modern high-rise apartments nearby.
