Aberdeen Floating Village

In Hong Kong Aberdeen Floating Village (aka Aberdeen Fishing Village), you can see rows upon rows of the old-fashioned junks and sampans, some house boats where the fishermen and their families still live, all going on their daily routines, which now include mobile phones and satellite dishes.

It is a very picturesque scene, with the unexpected touch of modernity right and left. The high-rises framing the harbour and the ultra-modern yacths moored not far away complete this picture of contrasts.

Aberdeen Floating Village and the Aberdeen Harbour are a feast for photographers and very much worth a look, you can get a sense for what things were like long ago and how modern life is catching up to the old traditions, which stubbornly co-exist with contemporary amenities.
