Aberdeen

View of AberdeenLocated on one of the southern tips of Hong Kong Island, Aberdeen is the largest satellite town with a population of about sixty thousand. Two centuries ago it was a pirates' den but later it turned into a simple fishing village. Recently, as the local high-rise building developments, Aberdeen has modernized and becomes a vibrant waterfront resort for people from metropolitan Hong Kong.

Aberdeen is unique in the sense that it puts forward the traditional lifestyle and modernity on a single platter. Despite modernization, conventional lifestyle still prevails in Aberdeen. Aberdeen harbour preserves the features of a fishing port. Fishing boats, equipped with traditional sampans, shuttle back and forth. Fishermen are busy arranging for their bread and butter. Visitors can cruise around the fishing port on a boat. People who have passed most of their life on dry lands would find fishing life of Aberdeen very intriguing.

In addition to experience the traditional life of boat-dwellers, visitors may also enjoy tasty seafood in Aberdeen.

In the two restaurants guests can take a free ferryboat shuttle to reach them for a feast of delicious seafood as well as other culinary delights in these restaurants.
