Heading towards the customs to cross over to Zhuhai from Macau.
Gongbei Underground Shopping Complex is a huge complex. The entire open area in front of the border crossing has two floors of shops under it. Even among these knock-offs, differences in grade can be seen for the same model in different shops. Whatever you buy here, always bargain and bargain hard. Because you will never ever find the shop back again !!!
Zhuhai Hai Xian Jie is a popular live seafood street. It is about 10 mins' ride from the customs.
The moment my friends & i got off the taxi, a restaurant staff rushed to usher us in. We realized there were more than one restaurant on this street.
Vendors lined up in a long row. The line was so long you could not see the other end. As you walk pass a store the vendor will start selling their wares. They will say their seafood is the freshest or cheapest. The will rub their hands over the living creatures in square baskets.
The seashells, clams and sea slugs will squirt water in defense. There were even creatures I have never seen before in my life.
The restaurant staff helped us bargain. The live seafood vendors were not part of the restaurants..All we know is the price was cheap! The restaurant will only cook our live creatures. We had the choice to go spicy or non-spicy.
If you are in Zhuhai, you must experience their live seafood market !! :-)
