This mosque has really nice view! I recommend to go there to see the sunset. There are small shops near the mosque and their prices expensive.

The mosque looked nice and quaint, very peaceful. A tip to have an excellent view is to eat at the Hollywood Restaurant just down the road, you'll be able to have a great view of mosque from there too.

Okay, so it’s on stilts and not exactly floating on water. But this is a charming little mosque directly in the waterfront and is well maintained with stunning views.
