Aberdeen Harbour, Hong Kong

Aberdeen is located on the South West side of Hong Kong Island. Famous for its boat village and floating seafood restaurants located in the Harbour, it is perfect to spend a few hours walking around.

The Tanka people, who used to live on boats in the Aberdeen Harbour, are generally associated with the fishing industry. In fact, there are still several dozens of them living on boats in the harbour.

The city itself is only small, but bustling. There are many shops and malls under the high-rise apartment building. Below is the entrance to Aberdeen Square in Aberdeen Centre.Aberdeen_11

Although probably not a day trip in itself, Aberdeen is a great place to look around just on sunset to take in a different side of Hong Kong.
