For a quick crossing take the taxi rather than the glass bottomed boats. On a sunny day this is the place to go.

As you get to the waterside, the various boat vendors are vying of your business - there are the large glass bottom boats (which we have used before) or the smaller water taxi, which is faster (15 mins as opposed to 30mins). We opted for...More
