Set up for international (or rather Asian) tourists. Next to the marina city which was really nothing in the day time. Parking is chargable. Seafood over-priced and of limited choices. Should go to the tore-tore market 45 mins away if you have a car. The...More

It is a mini sized fish market that provide free tuna cutting show at specific time. It is a good place to visit if you're on a relaxing tour and you have a lot of time to spare. Otherwise, it's really nothing special.
