  • 台中港是一個觀光漁港,有大型的漁船停泊,也有海鮮賣,又有海鮮的餐廳,而海鮮都是挺新鮮的,而且價錢不貴 但來這的交通很煩,從市區到這兒要一個多小時  more »
  • 這裡好停車!可先買個烤魷魚邊走邊吃再進去逛!魚市裡都是海鮮,適合家裡有眾多人口的遊客採買喔!建議逛一圈後再挑一間自己喜歡的店家再下手殺價採買!正常店家都會給優惠還會加碼送喔!  more »
  • 臺中港是臺中的觀光漁港,在這有許多的新鮮海鮮可以購買,外面則是有許多小吃可以購買,在這也可以搭觀光漁船出去走走,但本身是中部人,所以也就沒有過去搭船了,但每個月仍會利用週末到這挑選些魚貨,有時還會買到外面買不到的海鮮唷!! 規劃行程的旅客,可以在這外面買些小吃,再配合潮汐狀況,可以到高美濕地去挖蛤仔,也是非常推薦親子戶外旅遊的活動景點。  more »
