Aberdeen is a densely populated neighborhood located on the south side of Hong Kong Island. Once a thriving industrial district, Aberdeen today is known for its many floating seafood restaurants. The best known is Jumbo Kingdom, which resembles a grand Chinese palace on the water. Other area attractions include sight-seeing tours of Aberdeen harbor aboard "sampans," or traditional Chinese fishing boats, and trips to Horizon Plaza mall in neighboring Ap Lei Chau (Duck's Tongue Island).
