Bullring Indoor Market is a famous fish market that also offers fresh meat, fruits and vegetables sourced from all over the world. When you enter the market, you'll find the buzz to be quite extensive as vendors and buyers discuss prices and quality.

While kids are certainly welcome here, the busyness and crowds of the area can be overwhelming for some. Most people spend a good 2 hours or so within, but your visit could be longer if you want to explore everything they have on offer. Alternatively, you could easily be in and out in under an hour if you're just going to grab a single item.
