Great place to visit if you love to eat fresh fish or sushi. Choose from a variety of welcoming shops and restaurants. Fish is also sold in this market but be sure to arrive early as the best fish tends to sell out early in the morning.

Ther's so much activity here in the morning. When we were allowed in at 10 am, we had to be careful where we walked so as not to get in the way of the stall holders, trolleys and trucks. Seemed very chaotic but interestingly nobody got into anybody's way! Even though the main business activity had been completed, there was... More

Great place to visit. The place is packed. To see the tuna auction you need to get there at 5AM!! But if you go at a normal time the outer market has a great variety of fish and other items.

If you are keen to see the operation, you can go to the market st 3 am. Everyday, they are allowed 200 outsider to go inside. If you are like me, just want to see and have good food. Be there early in the morning for breakfast.

Went with the family to get a more traditional/earthly feel to the city and we got just that. Very busy and a lot of exotic food.

We thought about getting up early to see the auction. Nah. Slept in and headed off making sure we were there to see around the real market. The sights were amazing. Sea creatures I hadn't seen before. We even bought some fresh fresh tuna from a vendor smack bang in the middle of the fish area. We ate while watching... More

A good experience with fresh fish. You must be there if you love sushi. Walking along the outer market area and try all those seafood is very exiting. No need to wait in a long queue for those famous sushi shop. Just try whatever available street food you like.

We went to the fish market in March. We left the hotel at 2:30am to get there around 3am. All the spaces were filled up around 3:30am (we were in group 2). The person who came in and explained the fishing side of thing and the auction process was great and very informative. The auction itself was rapid fire. It... More
