Floating Dock, Manaus

(400+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
The geography of the Amazonian region is rife with obstacles, so many locals travel between cities by boat. Floating docks are a common stopping point for supplies and connections to cities for these local transport boats, and Floating Dock is one of these docks with access to Manaus. Although, there are some cafes and some shopping nearby, its value is as a slice of life experience for the visitor. Here, you will see local fisherman stocking and unloading, cruise ships taking a breather, and transport boats almost completely covering the surface of the water. The hustle and bustle harkens docks of old and you may recall stories about of jungle stopping points from Conrad, or Marquez.

On the shore you'll see colonial architecture being reclaimed by nature with vines protruding from windows and the a pastel paint taking on a magical air. These are a popular image for photographs and  a truly original moment to send the folks back home. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Manaus holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Floating Dock and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Amazon tour application was worry for ages 4 days 3 nights or Lucerne (when a lifetime be Oh? ...) on the day of the tour match a little boring and a lot of riders rating changes. The day after my nice let me praise themselves for judgment. The floating Harbour. Machine does no going to the match. This is what an individual is classified as a tourist destination in itself is funny. ㅋ

  • Despite not being a place with great structure, is a good place to meet, being the largest floating port in the world, it is interesting to discover and see the ships!

  • The floating port of Manaus, Roadway, built late 19th century, was for decades the postcard from the capital of Amazonas. For your constructive system, on buoys, which traveled with the movement of floods receding waters of the river/Regro, the Roadway has attracted great curiosity and popularity. Today, decadent, is delivered to the abandonment by the Government semi. Still worth to be visited.
