  • If you go to the morning market you will find it difficult to separate this from it. Much the same theme - market fish, crab and squid.

  • It is a very tourist area with many interesting eats, buys and experiences. The only thing is many merchants will try to trap you into making purchases, which is understandable, but it makes it scary to browse their stands. Covid also took a toll, as the market is a lot less busy than before. I went specifically to fish for the live squid, which they prepare in front of you! It was yummy.
  • Many stalls but not much difference from stall to stall. The standout had to be squid fishing and sashimi preparation. Be mindful that prices are for visitors and even the melon price can vary from day to day.
