Led by a friendly expert guide, you will experience the sights and sounds of Enchanting Aberdeen. During this fully interactive 50-minute tour, you can ask you guide questions, take photos and even chat with local vendors, meaning you will experience every part of your Hong Kong tour in real time.

Join us on an inspirational cultural exploration of vibrant Aberdeen, the birthplace of Hong Kong. During this experience, we will be on both foot and take a traditional wooden sampan fishing boat.

We’ll show you a slower-paced side of Hong Kong that travellers rarely see. Learn about Aberdeen’s earliest role as a vital enclave for trade, incense manufacturing and fishing, a legacy that endures to the present day.

Starting on dry land, we will pause at the tiny cluster of gods and shrines known as the “Guardians of Aberdeen.” Then, we board an iconic wooden sampan boat to glide peacefully through the harbour, weaving through the floating village populated by a community of fisherfolk who have turned their backs on modern city dwelling to pursue a traditional way of life on the water.

We’ll conclude the tour on Ap Lei Chau, the second most densely populated island in the world, to see the traditional businesses supporting the current water activities.

This is perfect for both seasoned travellers and armchair explorers, schools and teams enabling the curious to satisfy their wanderlust without leaving home.

Wow, what an amazing and unique experience. Amy took us on a boat ride, immersing us into the Hong Kong fishing and boating community, which has a life of its own. Amazing boat shapes and colors, with beautiful Hong Kong views as a backdrop. Very informational and entertaining. Highly recommend it!
