  • Curious fish market. If you go through Male an obligatory visit. True artists of the knives. Two tips, visit it with closed shoes (the soil tends to be saturated water) and refrain from visiting it if you are a bit careful. Flies move freely and do not know the ice (29 ° C outside)...

  • It's absolutely great to visit. Do not miss the vegetable market which is on the other side of the road. Best time to visit is obviously early in the morning
  • Not like Tsukiji, but very impressive fish working skills here. You can watch the expertise of the fishermen as they clean off the fresh catch.
  • The only place in Maale where you get fresh catch.
  • Sandip das
  • The place is crowded with people
