#About the Ancient Fishermen Village on the Beach

Aberdeen Harbor is the old fishing port of Hong Kong. Aberdeen itself is an ancient fishing village in its origin, which, over the years, has found itself surrounded by the bustling city. Today it is the port city, with a floating village with hundreds of fishing boats and residentes.

Now, the modern port became too large and bourgeois, which can be seen by the diminished number of the boats and yachts. But, it's still a great place to get to know the traditional, non-western Chinese side of the island.

In the port of Aberdeen, the Junks, the traditional Chinese ships, had docked in the past. In hundreds of boats, the fishing families lived here. Here also sailed sampans, small fishing boats, now you can rent them for a ride pleasant around the harbor.

Aberdeen and its port are famous for its floating restaurants, which offer fine seafood. The most prominent is the Jumbo Restaurant, the largest floating restaurant in the world. It has gained world renown fame thanks to good food and traditional Chinese design, combined with British imperial elements.



#Tips

It is worth renting a sampang for a tour of the fishing port, the canals of the floating villages and the floating restaurants.

Bargain over the price of the Sampang, because they tend to raise it for tourists.

A delightful attraction in Aberdeen is sailing and dining in one of its floating restaurants.
