“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

After a walk along the Esplanade, the Night Markets make for an easy spot to have dinner. The Chinese food stalls are presented beautifully, great prices, and delicious (if not terribly healthy) food. The stalls selling cheap souvenirs are pretty basic, and pretty bad to tell the truth. Massages are cheap.

“Cheap quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Right on the waterfront, the night market has cheap quality food from $10 to $14 a plate. A lot of Asian choices and even pork roasts.

“Excellent Asian Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

There are few food stalls selling Asian food, it is great to see that it is value for money if you are looking for a good feed. There are different options to suit all needs. They are open till late as well. There are also few Chinese Massage service so great time to relax after a tiring day at the reef or national park trip.

Quite busy. It also has few souvenir shops selling different gift items to suit all budget size. There is a glass souvenir store. It was great to see them make different glass items on the spot.
