Destination Vacation: Aberdeen Sampan, Hong Kong

            It was almost lunch time when we dropped by Aberdeen Sampan, a tour company in here in Hong Kong Island. They have boats available for touring around the Aberdeen shore for 30 - 45 minutes. From afar, we saw small and large yachts and the tourist boats known as Sampan.  In addition, hiring those boats is the best way for tourists to get an excellent view of the harbour of the south shore of Hong Kong Island. As for us, we hired a boat good for 15 persons with a female operator.
                The Sampan ride will allow every tourist to closer look of the renowned floating seafood restaurant in the Island, Jumbo floating restaurant. The said restaurant, which appears to be a huge pagoda vessel is very better known for its delicious yet expensive delicacies
                    The Aberdeen used to mainly be a fishing village but is now surrounded by tall commercial buildings and fancy yachts. Through the Sampan ride I was able to witness the two extremely opposite lifestyles in the same area.

Our female boat operator also sells some souvenir items such as t-shirts ranging HK$30-40 in price, magnetic souvenir items, key chains, coin purses, etc. The Sampan ride was such a learning experience for me. It showed us the perfectly opposing lifestyles between the fishermen with their families living in the boathouses and the urban people. Nonetheless, this fishing village serves a niche where it reminds every people here that the fast developing country that is Hong Kong started as a humble fishing wharf.
