though Hong Kong is no longer primarily a fishing port like it
was a hundred years ago, there are still fishermen and fishing
boats based in Hong Kong. There are a few places where they have
traditionally berthed. Aberdeen
is most well-known but Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter is another
one of them, away from the beaten bath of tourists. At times one
can actually see fishermen working on their fishing nets.
Straddling the Sai Wan Ho and Shau Kei Wan MTR
subway stations, the typhoon shelter is just a short walk from
Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter is also where one can catch a scheduled
ferry to go to some islands nearby. It is also one of the locations
of dragon boat races - which take place at Dragon
Boat Festival (there are also special races at other times).
