Aberdeen Harbor is in the bay between the south coast of Hong Kong Island, off the town of Aberdeen, and a small island called Ap Lei Chau. In this area, you will find yachts, fishing boats, houseboats, junks, and sampans.
About 5,000 people still live on boats in the harbor and remain in their floating fishing village among the busting metropolis. The quaint fishing village is in sharp contrast to the soaring skyscrapers along the harbor. It almost feels like you are in another city.
The former British colony is full of history, boasts spectacular Harbor views and is a foodie’s haven. From picturesque hiking trails to museums and street markets, Hong Kong has much to offer. Get on the Star Ferry and take in the views of Victoria Harbor, or stretch those muscles with a hike up to Victoria Peak – you’ll be rewarded with views.
