Cancellation policy

These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

After you’re done exploring the financial city and shopping capital of Hong Kong, it’s time for a dose of culture. At Aberdeen, jump on a sampan (or boat) and enjoy a ride through the harbor. You will pass along the typhoon shelter, where most of the Hong Kong suburban dwellers reside. All the while, listen to the onboard commentary and try to picture the modest lifestyles of those that call Aberdeen their home.

Set foot next on a houseboat and watch as the old Hong Kong folklore tales unfold before your eyes. You’ll see one of the world’s largest floating markets from here, the Jumbo Kingdom, along with traditional shipyards, taking you back in time. The cultural exhibition onboard will give you a glimpse into the lives of the fishermen, along with Aberdeen’s charming history. Munch on traditional dried fish snacks, try the delectable “boat noodles” and try on the fishermen’s clothes and hats for digital memories to last!
