25. Fun, food and floating markets –  Ah Poong Pasar Apung Sentul City Food Court

Ah Poong is a giant sprawling food court with lots of different dining options to suit even the fussiest of eaters. It’s like a food theme park!

To get to Ah Poong, you have to cross one of two suspension bridges over the river – and the view is one of the highlights!

Add credit to a pre-paid Ah Poong food card and use that to pay for all the dishes and drinks that you select. No need to worry about paying for each different item.

This is an adventure for all the family; children will love trying new food, sitting in a boat and trying all the other children-friendly activities on offer. (Don’t eat too much before the bouncy castle though!)

Try and grab a table on the terrace overlooking the floating market. Afterwards you can even have a ride in one of the little riverboats – for free!

Ah Poong is the essence of unique – where else in the world can you make yourself a mini buffet with samples of food from all over the world?
