It is no need for you to ask for permission to take photos because the local vendors are accustomed to it.


When walking down the market, there are a lot of restaurant salesmen trying to pressure you, as a customer, into purchasing their seafood and some of them are friendly and some are not. Hence, before opting for a restaurant, it is better for you to walk up and down the road to get well oriented. The prices of items sold out here are negotiable, so be flexible.

You also see a large number of fish on display, some swimming around the fish tanks which are aerated and some are laid out on the ice.
