The Chew Jetty area has been sadly over commercialised and has lost any historic appeal it obviously once had. 15 mins is all you need to wander through the jetty. It’s hot and crowded and full of crappy tourist souvenirs.

i suggest u to go chew jetty at the afternoon because it very hot at the jetty. the business hour is 10 am - 9 pm. there is only one jetty near the big bowl noodle. don't forget to bring hat because it is hot.
