One single stop for multiple purposes. The Marina City consists of a fish market, a theme park, hot spring, fruit market and a hotel. I only visited the fish market, which is clean with good air conditioning.

It was a nice surprise when we discovered that we could bring our dogs into the theme park and we could even bring our dogs in the Ferris Wheel in the park. Nice place to relax and walk around.
