    We paid HKD35 per person for 30 minutes sampan ride that take us to the JUMBO floating restaurant. You get to see Ocean Park from far.

    Jumbo Floating Restaurant

    The Jumbo Floating Restaurant really is cool to take a look at. I combined it with a boat trip around the harbour to look at the local fishing fleet.

    Aberdeen is the southern district of Hong Kong Island. To go there catch a bus or take a taxi. There are some pretty temples and you will find the big floating restaurants here.

    This is a floating village. People live on the boats, shop on the boats and even walk the dogs on the boats. I hear that some people have never left the boat village..

    The bustle of people living and working is the biggest attraction on the island, where 6000 people live or work on junks anchored in the harbour. The other major draw is the floating restaurants.

    Take a boat ride to get a great picture of Jumbo, the floating resturaunt. The boat will also bring you to see the floating houses where the 'boat people' live.

    It was an interesting contrast between the mighty skyscrapers that are such a part of Hong Kong and the simple fishing community of Aberdeen.
