We used bus #72 to head to the coastal settlement of Aberdeen, on the southern side of HK island, but not a huge distance from Causeway Bay. The trip passed through Happy Valley and a tunnel, and we were there. There still was a fishing fleet based in A, and a typhoon shelter for boats. Arguably the most densely HK... More

Rides around this large protected harbor with lots of fishing boats on a sampan is a must do item. Private rides are not all that expensive and give you a break from walking and the sun. Don't miss the Jumbo Fish Restaurant.

South Island line to Lei Tung and exit A to Ap Lei Chau promenade. There, get a delightful short ferry ride across the harbour to Aberdeen promenade. Just wander around and take in the sites. Fishball flat rice noodles the specialty.

So with the new extension of the South Island MTR line one can get from Admiralty on the north side of HK Island to Ap Lei Chau in just 12 minutes as compared to in the old days via vehicles either through the Aberdeen tunnel or around the western side which take much longer. In Ap Lei Chau Island and... More

Here's where it all started. Aberdeen is one of the nine Harbours in Hong Kong, and it was used for early trade by the British. Now it's famous as a tourist attraction for its floating village and floating seafood restaurants which are located in the Aberdeen Harbour. Many of the Tanka people,traditional fishermen, still live on boats in the Aberdeen... More

Really ; we didn't expect much but had a blast with the 30 minute boat ride u can buy either at "sticker price" or for half of it after negotiations. It is the weird little things you see, and probably make pictures of that are worth the time spent. Fishermen working and how they cope with a) lack of cash... More

Pretty looking area but don't make a dedicated visit there as there's not a whole lot to do. If you're going to Ocean Park, you'll see over the whole area from the cable cars and the upper part of the park. Bus 70 goes there from the Exchange Square bus terminus if you still wish to visit.
