The other side of Hong Kong Nov 03, 2009
This floating fishing village can only been seen by boat. If you go to the dock across from Jumbo’s Floating Restaurants there are several boats that can be rented for a twenty minute trip to the fishing boats. Prices start at 150 Hong Kong dollar, it’s best to negotiate the price before you step on board. Especially if there aren’t many tourists around prices can probably be brought down quite a bit. They will try and get you in the boat without discussing the price though, so be ware.
The trip itself is quite nice the contrast between contemporary life and old fashioned is almost mind blowing. This plays also shows a very different side of hip and happening Hong Kong.
