People still use this technology for fishing. Very popular amongst locals and toirists both. But one needs to be a little careful as they try to take out money in the name of clicking some pictures and donation.

This is part of the city tour arranged by our travel agent. Something to do with the history and they still preserve it for the next generation.

Strolling around the highly polluted beach is not the main reason for visiting this place so once you forget about it, you will simply be amazed by the sunset right behind the fishing nets.

Though it is a historical place and it is nice to see the Chinese traces, I still feel that a must-visit place can never be stinky.
