Lovely little fishing village with many shops and seafood. Take a boat ride for lovely scenery or take a walk up the mountain to see the White Chinese Dolhins swim.

Although there isn't a lot to see, the stilt houses make beautiful photos,. The boat ride is a must to have a nice tour of the area.

Behind the market streets there's what makes this town unique: the "houses" over the water with wooden paths connecting them.

We had a good wander around the food markets and went on a pink dolphin spotting trip. Out over the water we visited a great little restaurant called Triple Lanterns.
