The nets are interesting to look at of course and have historical significance. But it is all of the life going on around them with the nets in the backdrop that make them a must see. Yes it’s busy, yes the beach is a bit...More

Chinese fishing nets are tent shaped upside down. This nets are left in water for 2-3 days and fishies get trapped and cannot come out. And this fisherman’s would scoop-up the nets to see their catch. There are only few places with Chinese fishing nets,...More

I've never seen anything like this before. The net scoops fish out of the river. The locals invited me to pull up the nets, and then hassled me for tips after. I gave them generous tips, and then they asked for more and practically grabbed...More

We read about the chinese net and went up to the shore to check thise out but were disappointed as there were hardly any nets. So it needs a major restoration if it still needs to be considered as a tourist point.

If you are lucky, you can witness the Chinese fishing nets in action. They actually use some loads on one side to pull the nets from water. This is an ancient Chinese technique that people are still using here.
