Purchase a wide array of fresh exotic flowers and peruse all sorts of handcrafted wares in the bustling ambience of Marche des Fleurs. The market receives many visitors on a daily basis, but things can get overwhelming from lack of friendliness and tact.

  • The craft market is not attractive. It is poorly maintained and outdated. the shops offer little dissimilar items from a shop to another. Haggling is rigorous and sometimes it's tiring.

  • Visiting this site, for guiris, and visit the numerous shops of handicraft and masks is worth. The wake-up call of all traders is overwhelming

  • also sellers of flowers all the more sublime than the other, get lost in the maze of alleys collecting modern souvenir sellers alumni, textiles or wood, bronze or paint... everything for all tastes and all budgets. Everything is negotiable. All paid in cash. We must return to the game of negotiation. It's important. take the time to listen to the detail on the craft skills of each tribe, the specificities of each region, captions, and a few sections of stories and tales that will be fun to remember, contemplating the back object. very nice get away. Do not hesitate to fend off the Importunate that exhibit you the road to compel you to go home or help out :) but not anxiety. Even if some scream, cry, curse, we're in the comedia del arte... play with them: they will be happy and you too!
