  • This small sampan tour will take you an hour. There are several places of embarkation for "official" tourist"boats, but if you stand on the bridge over the main road, you will be certainly discussed by fishing families that offer the tour against dozens of HK$. What are kind of marine taxis bringing sailors from a fishing vessel to another. The large fishing vessels are often also the home of fishing families. The sampan will take you to the famous floating restaurant Jumbo for the photo of circumstance then returns, zigzagging between the boats... typical, quiet, unusual.
