One of the most interesting aspects of Hong Kong is its great vibrancy and buzz that makes it seem so alive and inviting; it does really make one yearn to explore the wonders of this city. Over the years the different ethnic groups have contributed towards the vibrancy of the city and today it features a range of attractions to explore.
For those keen on moving away from the bustle of the shopping bazaars and streets lined with eateries, head down to the Aberdeen Harbour to experience a different aspect of Hong Kong’s lifestyle. The Aberdeen Harbour is a unique concept of a fishing village where hundreds of people have made the harbour their home. The harbour is filled with a range of colourful fishing junks that serve as homes to these people. And the most interesting aspect here is how contrasted this little boat village is against the modern city of Hong Kong, visible just above and over the harbour. But in the evening, just as the Hong Kong skies light up with colourful neon lights, the Aberdeen Harbour offers a spectacular sight with all the little lights on the boats coming alive. And the most beautiful of sights is those lights reflecting on the harbour waters making it shimmer against the dark skies.
During the daytime this area offers a range of explorations, where one can experience the lifestyle of these fishermen. At night the area comes alive with several eateries opening their doors to guests. The magnificent three storey high floating restaurant is one of the most sought after as it offers a wonderful view of the harbour. Also being by the sea the restaurant guarantees excellent seafood cuisine and other Cantonese fare – a not to be missed experience whilst in Hong Kong.
Visitors to this lovely island are offered a range of lodging options, and being a cosmopolitan city its lodging options also guarantee modern amenities and facilities. Depending on your budget you can choose from a range of different types of accommodation options such as a Hong Kong boutique hotel or a budget hotel. For those seeking a 5 or 4 star hotel Hong Kong offers choice accommodation including the Cosmo Hotel, located in the modern Causeway Bay.
