    Boat people in Aberdeen

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Although Hong Kong is crowded on land, this is not the reason why there is still a community of Hong Kongers who living on their boats. It is their family tradition as the case for several fishing communities in other parts of Southern China.

    In Hong Kong, you can see them carrying out their daily lives in their boats at Aberdeen which is located at one of the tips in the south of Hong Kong Island.

    Aberdeen

    Favorite thing: This is Aberdeen...LOTS of fairly dingy apartment buildings plus some shopping centres and industrial buildings.

    Aberdeen is one of Hong Kong's top tourist attractions although I couldn't see why myself...there wasn't a whole lot to see from our stop there.

    Favorite thing: Aberdeen harbour is on the other side of Hong Kong Island to Victoria harbour. The best way to get there is by bus. My friends, Fiona and Angela, and I went to Aberdeen in the evening to go to the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. Here is a pic of us in a small junk floating on the harbour.

    Favorite thing: Go to the Junk villiages in Aberdeen harbor. They are floating cities in a part of the harbor where families along with all of their belongings, including live stock live on boats the size of some large fishing boats. It is a sight like no other.

    Fondest memory: Crashing an embassy party on New Years Eve!

    Favorite thing: Fascinating Aberdeen, a world on the water, where several hundred people still live.
    Once incense was exported into China from this port, which then became Aberdeen.
