Aberdeen is a small town located on the south side of Hong Kong island, away from the skyscrapers and biz of the city on the other side. However, it is just 30 or 40 minutes car ride from Central. This is the ideal location for a little relaxation and also one of the best spots for viewing the old traditional way of life. Aberdeen is popular with the native boat dwelling populations of the south of China. The people here live in a sort of floating village; spending much of their life on the water.
