Aberdeen is known for its floating islands where local fishermen can be seen plying their craft from their junks. It is also home to the floating restaurant, Jumbo. The best way to experience Aberdeen Harbour is to take a cruise tour by sampan.

Dis the sampon ride as part of our big bus ticket. Quirky old boats, seem a bit unsteady as they sail around the harbour. Worth a trip on one if your in the area.

Not normally easy to cater for large groups. However, we were very well attended and no one had issues. Food was very good and the staff very helpful.

The Sampan Boat ride to me is one of the most exciting part of our trip to Hongkong. Seeing those old HK boats called junks is like being transported to early HK society. Riding it is an experience in itself as you see other old...More

We did this all on our own. Rode the bus down to the pier. Knew what to expect as we crossed the walkway to get to the harbour and a nice elderly lady asked us if we wanted a sampan ride. Since I knew what...More

We really enjoyed the ride and the antics of our driver. Quite a fun place going in and out of the fishing boats. Wish we could visited the floating restaurant. A real treat and would have done it again.

Hong Kong's bustling Zigang Harbour is historic and well worth a visit. We booked a tour which included a boat ride around the harbour, with splendid sunset views and a fine dinner at the "floating" restaurant. Yes, it floats, but it does not go anywhere,...More

Sadly a sampan tour has become a trip around a watery car park. The boat dwelling Tanka population seem to have declined so the atmospheric liveaboard boats, providing picturesque alleys where you would almost expect James Bond speedboat cat and mouse chases, have largely gone....More

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
