Hong Kong - Aberdeen & South Hong Kong Island (PDF Chapter)
This is the Aberdeen & South Hong Kong Island chapter from Lonely Planet’s Hong Kong guidebook.
The southern district is not only a showcase of history – Pok Fu Lam has the island’s last sur-viving village – but Aberdeen and Ap Lei Chau are also the homes of Hong Kong’s boat-dwelling fisherfolk and offer wonderful seafood and boat rides.
- watch the goings-on on moored boats along Aberdeen Promenade, then hop on a sampan to cross the typhoon shelter the way it was done decades ago
- gallery-hop, tour a brewery and chill at the latest industrial-chic café in Wong Chuk Hang
- revisit a time in Hong Kong history when French missionaries crossed paths with dairy cowboys and a fire dragon at Béthanie in Pok Fu Lam.
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
