Overview
Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter is a unique fishing village that blends the old and new. The traditional lifestyle shared among fishermen or Tanka people with many antique junks and sampans are juxtaposed against fleets of luxury yachts and towering skyscrapers. The typhoon shelter is also home to many intangible cultural heritage, all being traces of the humble beginnings of Hong Kong when it was still a small fishing village. Let us bring you back in time as you hop onboard our unique sampan boats, we will cruise through 13 different local landmarks around the charming Aberdeen fishing village. While cruising, try immerse yourself in the area’s rich culture and history, through our exquisitely designed audio guide, where you will listen to folk-tales, lullabies and narratives of the area. If you’re lucky, you may be able to witness traditional dragon boat trainings or live fish trade in action!

工作人員態度好 provided a good attitude in the service. 旅程主要介紹避風塘周邊景點,若可以出避風塘外遊一圈就更好。 This trip introducedls the viewpoint around the Typhoon Shelter, good trip for the foreign people when visiting hong kong, as it introduces the history and special culture in HK.

The tour gives you the historical background of Hong Kong as a fishing village and I found it really interesting even as a local. It takes 1 hr to go around the harbour and they’ll bring you to a “house boat” where you can have traditional “boat noodles” there. Highly

The tour was pretty authentic. Riding on a traditional sampan allows us to see more hidden views of Aberdeen Fishing Village. At the end of the trip, we boarded a houseboat to see exhibits of fishermen live: kitchen, bed room etc. We also enjoyed boat noodle. The soup was tasty.
