About Aberdeen Houseboat

  • After our tour, let’s enter the houseboat. In the 1960’s, most fishermen lived full time in these humble boats. At the time, there were more than 2000 houseboats in Aberdeen, and other vessels that sold daily necessities such as water, fruit and noodles to the fishermen who lived there.
  • On the houseboat, there is a cultural exhibit on Hong Kong fishermen, with vintage photographs and videos available to show you what life here used to be like. Step onto the houseboat, and experience the highs and lows of life on the water.
