  • Beautiful location. Even though it was winter there were a fair bit of stands open. I can see this being a great destination in the summer. But beware of stands that don't put their prices up...$4 for a donut?? Won't be doing that again!
  • What a place, not just the expansive food halls and stands but the whole place has a buzz you can never forget. A true experience and one we would love to go back to. You need to take the small water Taxi across but do go there and have lunch and spend a few hours just doing what can't be done in many places in the world. Just seeing these pictures again after a year we still remember it with so much joy.
