Get a sense of Hong Kong’s seafaring origins at the Aberdeen fish market and promenade. Rock up early and head to the wide, pedestrianised boardwalk, where you’ll encounter fisherfolk selling the day’s catch straight from their brightly coloured boats. Jostle with elderly folk snapping up the best specimens then dive into the market itself, Hong Kong’s only wholesale fish depot. When hunger strikes, Yee Hope Restaurant is the local canteen for flip-fresh seafood and other HK staples. Open from 4am to cater for fishermen and market workers, it's zero frills, there’s no menu and no English spoken, so be prepared to gesticulate — you won’t find fresher fish.
