TAICHUNG, TAIWAN (TraNews) – At the mention of Hong Kong, most people get the impression that Hong Kong is a modern metropolis. However, conventional lifestyle and traditional fishing village scenery still prevail in Aberdeen, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions among foreign tourists. Aberdeen is a vibrant waterfront harbor resort that records the early history of Hong Kong.
Aberdeen, alternatively known as “Shek Pai Wan,” is situated in the Southern District of Hong Kong Island. Aberdeen Harbor lies between Aberdeen town and Ap Lei Chau. Along with the changes of time and development of urbanization, the fishing village scenery gradually disappeared. Today Aberdeen is famous to tourists for its floating village and floating seafood restaurants, such as the Jumbo Floating Restaurant.
Aberdeen Harbor used to be a simple, rustic fishing village. In recent years, it has transformed into a modern town crammed with high-rise buildings, yet it still preserves its old world charm which enchants the tourists. In the evenings, the thousands of glittering lights reflected on the water are a fascinating sight.
Visitors to Aberdeen, of course, cannot miss such a great opportunity to savor an impressive variety of traditional culinary delights, and visit some of the well-known tourist attractions, including Aberdeen Old Street, Tinhou Temple, Aberdeen Typhoon Shelters, Aberdeen Plaza and more. It is worth mentioning that each year there will be a series of traditional Chinese New Year festivities taken place at Aberdeen Typhoon Shelters. Meanwhile, Aberdeen is also situated with easy reach of Ocean Park, one of Southeast Asia’s largest oceanariums and theme parks.
How to get there:
Bus 70 from Exchange Square bus terminus(MTR Hong Kong Station Exit D), and get off near Aberdeen Promenade.
